2018-11 - Change the world…

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward.

And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

2018-10 - Women...

To us, your power comes from one simple thing: you're a woman, and we men will do anything humanly possible to impress you so that, ultimately, we can be with you.

You're the driving force behind why we wake up every day. Men go out and get jobs and hustle to make money because of women. We drive fancy cars because of women. We dress nice, put on cologne, get haircuts and try to look all shiny and new for you.

We do all of this because the more our game is stepped up, the more of you we get.

You're the ultimate prize to us.

~  Steve Harvey

Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world.

2018-09 - What I know...

By the time I was 17, I was working in radio, making $100 a week. And that's when I made my peace with money.

I decided that no matter what job I ever did, I wanted that same feeling I got when I first started in radio - the feeling of 'I love this so much', even if you didn't pay me I'd show up every day, on time and happy to be here.

I recognized then what I know now for sure: If you can get paid for doing what you love, every pay-check is a bonus.

Give yourself the bonus of a lifetime: Pursue your passion. Discover what you love. Then do it!

2018-08 - Your Wellbeing...

Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions.

Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go.

Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else.

You have to make your wellbeing a priority.

Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful - you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself.

Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.

2018-07 - A Lifetime...

Lets say that when I turned sixteen, a genie had appeared to me and said, 'Warren, I'm going to give you the car of your choice. Brand-new.' I would have said, 'What's the catch?'

And the genie would have answered, 'This is the last car you're ever going to get in your life. So it's got to last a lifetime.'

I would have picked out a car. But, can you imagine, knowing it had to last a lifetime, what I would do with it? I would read the manual about five times. I would always keep it garaged. If there was the least little dent or scratch, I'd have it fixed right away because I wouldn't want it rusting. I would baby that car, because it would have to last a lifetime.

That's exactly the position you are in, concerning your mind and body. You only get one mind and one body. And it's got to last a lifetime.

You've got to be very careful if you don't know where you are going.
