You Don’t Need To Be Right To Be Awesome.

There’s no one right way to do anything. There might be a better way or a faster way. A plan that is cheaper. An idea that makes money faster.

Just don’t be fooled into thinking that just because it worked for someone else it’s going to work for you too.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that the people who tell you how you should do things will be there to help you when it doesn’t work out exactly right.

You’re on your own.

Backed up by your own unique set of skills.

Equipped with the perspective you’ve gained from your life experience so far.

Even though it doesn’t feel like it, you have everything you need to move forward.

There isn’t anything you’re missing that you can’t learn, earn, or figure out eventually.

There’s never been easier access to answers than right now. It doesn’t matter the subject or the complexity of the problem — someone else has had the same problem before you and figured it out enough to share it in a concise way online.

You just have to search for it.

Digest it. Soak it in. Then get busy making it your own.

Do it your way. There is no right way. There is no perfect solution.

Life is messy. Success mostly looks like failure.

The only wrong move is the stop trying. To stop thirsting for breakthrough.

You’ve got everything you need to do something amazing.

Stop waiting to be sure before you get started.
