I always knew that I would do something with my life and that my life was not mine alone... I knew that in order for me to have a great life I had to help others in the process! I also knew that just because at 23 I had no clue what the hell I wanted to do with my life, but it didn't matter as long as I kept pushing and stayed focused on being the best JOHN LEWIS I can be that everything will fall into place!
I share this because too many times we focus on what other people have to say, but we don't focus our own positive energy on what it takes to get where we want to be. It's not going to be easy but it is so worth it. And no excuse in the book will save you from your own self sabotage. I know it can be tough, but fuck that... You are tougher than whatever life can throw at you... And before you think I can't relate... I have been over 300lbs, lived in my car, lost loved ones, countless injuries, damn near died on a couple occasions (car accident where car was totalled) had thousands of dollars stolen from me (some so called friends have stolen thousands themselves)... You name it, I have been through it, but 3 things never changed:
