Fifteen years ago today, I was lying face-down on a street in Springfield, Missouri, in a pool of my own blood. Just a few seconds before that, I felt the excruciating pain of getting stabbed multiple times. Bottom line: a dude tried his best to kill me. So...what would you do if that happened to you? There's not a person alive who hasn't been hurt by someone. How you handle your emotions & respond to that hurt will determine the quality of your life & relationships & the things you're able to accomplish.
It's amazing to me how most people have an excuse for why they aren't winning. They have every tool, resource, and opportunity. But there's a factor in the way they think & how they operate that is going to ruin them. Our culture is cursed & the mindset of the majority is hellbent on mediocrity. As sick & tired as I am about all this, I can't stop caring, & I won't stop working to make sure that the people who really, truly want to succeed know the hard truth about what it's going to take to do that.
