Don't Miss Every Single Opportunity
Never give in. Never ever give in. Nothing great or small, large or petty. Never give in except with the convictions of honor and good sense.
If you really want to change the world and see something happen, and you're willing to look inside yourself and figure out the bones you'll have to break and reshape to become the person you'll need to become to execute your master plan, and that fire is in your belly and nothing I say right now can stop you from pursuing it, then go for it.
Champions in life embrace the work. They embrace the process. The hardest things in life are also usually the most rewarding. I would choose work and success and all the things that come with it over the regret and fear of not living up to my potential any day of the week. Some of you want a promotion. Some of you want to leave something behind.
If you want to be able to do more, if you want to be able to have opportunities and responsibilities at your job or just in life that you've never had before, I'm telling you to work. I need you to upgrade your work on your 'work'.
If you do the work, you will get the result. Will you produce the result in a day? No, will you produce the result in a week? No, you won't, but here's what happens: you will move along the path, and you will make mistakes, and when these mistakes happen, you will learn lessons. Because you learn these lessons, you will not make the same mistake over and over again, and once you go through enough time, you will know enough to achieve the result that you're after.
