It’s about development

It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.

It’s your choice

It is our choices…that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.

How to look on the inside

If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.

Don’t rely on your talents

It is our choices…that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.

J. K. Rowling

You know I could if I just wanted. I’m super intelligent and stuff.

This bullshit attitude is what kills the dreams of many people out there day by day.

You can not do it untill you have done it! Never say “I could do it if I wanted to“, because obviously you can’t, even if the simply lack of will is holding you back.

There are people who decide to work hard and achieve things and there are people who just say they could because they were lucky to be born intelligent, good-looking or especially talented. Therefore good attributes to begin with often stand in the way of people, which is paradox but true.

Don’t be one of those people. Be the one who stays in late, who cleans up the mess, who runs the extra mile. You will get the extra reward, it’s just a matter of time.

Again a word about choice!
