"Courage is just a matter of sucking it up, not caring what other people think. You have to do what you want to do, all out. Honestly, the more you care about what other people think or say, the harder it is to move forward. Cause you get caught up. By all means I'm very open to criticism and feed back, but its more like motivation then a hinderance.
I'm learning to embrace what it is that I want to do and be more open about it because I feel like communicating it is manifesting it and just putting it out and making sure that you work toward it.
These things, they're not handed to you. You have to work for them."
"If youre passionate about something, it doesn't matter what it is, take any means that you can find to get there. It takes sacrifice, it takes compromise, and it takes a faith, just kind of jumping the gun and hoping for the best... You know it may not always work out, you may fall flat on your ass, but those are the things you have to know at the very beginning that you're getting into. And if you're okay with that, go for it. If not, figure out what it is that you will be passionate enough to fight for. Because ultimately whatever you're going to be happy doing is something you would've fought for. So work hard, play harder, and give it everything you can. You have to want it more than sleep, you have to want it more than anything."
Get it, girls.
