When I look at people I always ask the question I say man tell me what Nike stands for.
They said Oh Ink thats easy Just Do It.
I said tell me what Adidas stands for. Oh Ink thats easy man Impossible Is Nothing.
I said now tell me what you stand for.
When people look at you do they think excuses?
When people look at you do they think victory?
When people look at you do they think thats a person thats gonna give me everything they got not on some days but on every day and its not gonna be predicated upon if I feel like it because I think we all know if we only worked on the days when we felt like it none of us would get much accomplished.
Im talking about the real level of commitment.
Not the commitment that falls in line if everything goes right.
Im speaking of the commitment that says I am going to stay true to what I said I would do long after the mood that Ive said it in has left. See most people ladies and gentlemen are stoppable.
Most people all you have to do is tell them no.
All you have to do is make it inconvenient for them all you have to do is make it difficult for them and theyll stop. See when you go to get your goal dont think that all you have to do is think positive and everythings gonna work out hokey dokey for you.
When you go to get your goal You are sending a telegram to Murphys law to visit you personally. You thought you were just gonna have a dream and a goal And you were just gonna wake up and just walk into the sunset.
Youre like dream boom. It dont work like that. You have a dream and then life punks you. Life punks you and says do you really want this? Youre gonna lose friends do you really want this? Do you really want this? Cousins are gonna abandon you people that you used to be like this with gonna think you boujee and not wanna deal with you. Its a part of it. But I paid too much. If I was gonna quit I wouldve quit in an abandoned building when I wanted to commit suicide and take my life.
I shouldve quit when I heard my voice say your mama dont want you your daddy dont want you take your life. I got through that so why am I gonna quit over an F on a grade? Come on. And so Im telling yall you have come too far to quit now. You have invested too much to quit now. You have lost too much to quit now. Dont cry about it dont whine about it get a reward for your pain.
And so by being committed to everything that I started I finished it it built a certain type of spirit it built a certain type of mentality it built a certain type of individual. And so now I couldnt quit even if I wanted to I couldnt stop even if I wanted to I have too much sweat equity in my life in everything that I was doing. Youre too close to quit now. You gotta take another lap. You gotta take another lap cause you never know this might be the one.
You cant stop cause youre tired you cant stop cause you got your feelings hurt you gotta take another lap. Keep walking. Keep walking. Keep walking. Youre gonna make it. Youre gonna do it. You got an unstoppable fire. Come on take another lap. Dont you stop. Dont stop walking.
