16. “It’s one thing to talk about your destiny. It’s one thing to dream about your destiny. It’s one thing to look at your destiny. But it’s another thing – it is another thing – to make the decisions. To wake up when you know you supposed to wake up! Listen to what I’m telling you!

To write when you don’t feel like writing that paper. To say no to that party, that you know, is not going to help you, to make your dreams become a reality. Listen to me!

No, to sleep when you should be working out. Saying no to quitting when you still got a hundred more shots to make. Saying no when your body says stop, but you put in fifty more push ups! You can’t just talk about it! You gotta be about it!” – Eric Thomas
