"People pay money to see others believe in themselves."
That, to me, is the most inspirational statement I have ever read. It encapsulates what's been missing for me and what would be my ultimate achievement (not people paying to see me but having that unquestionable faith in myself). I'm not sure I'll ever believe in myself the way I need to, though.
...you gotta keep the goal in mind, develop tunnel vision to a certain extent. it's hard, and it's not for everyone.
“I'm very polite by nature, even the voices in my head let each other finish their sentences.”
