The Difference That Makes The Difference

There’s a big difference between fighting for your dreams and fighting with others about your right to fight for your dreams.

The former is intoxicating. The latter is just toxic.

Nothing will deter you from progress quite like the need to prove to others that you deserve to seek progress.

Every second that you spend justifying yourself is a second that could be spent bettering yourself.

You can make a much greater impact by hitting the gym or hitting the books than you can by hammering the doubters and naysayers in your life with long-winded arguments.

Losing an opportunity to develop your potential is a lot more costly than losing an opportunity to debate your point.

Instead of trying to force people into respecting your journey, invest that time and energy into mastering your craft.

No one ever said that living a purposeful life would be the same thing as making sense to everyone you know.
