Favorite Quote:

“There’s a lot of power in defining to yourself what your core is, what is your core goal, and what is core about you that you’re going to use to achieve that goal.

If you can’t succeed at being at the thing that you set out to do, then either change what you are setting out to do and be true to that, or be honest with yourself that you’re not actually successful.”
