"Let me tell you something you already know…
The world isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, it’s a very mean and nasty place. And I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is going to hit has hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!
Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth, but you gotta be willing to take the hits and not point fingers saying you ain’t what you wanna be because of him, her or anybody. Cowards do that…! And that ain’t you, you’re better than that!"
