EARNED. NOT GIVEN. September 24, 2018 16:27

So many people think they aren't where they want to be, because they don't have the talent to do so, they aren't as "lucky" as others. In all honesty it takes about 10% talent to achieve something great, the other 90% is based on how much heart you have. How much you are willing to work when no one else is watching. Putting all you have into your ambitions, and never cashing out early. This is what separates you from the rest.

Blood, sweat, and respect. The blood and sweat you give, while the respect is something you earn day in and day out. You can be born with a talent, but no one is born respected.

"Blood, sweat and respect. First two you give. Last one you earn."- Dwayne Johnson 

In this lifetime, you have to earn everything you get, no one is ever going to just hand it to you. You can't cheat the grind. It knows how much you have invested. It won't give you anything you haven't worked for it.

You won't get a participation trophy in real life. You are not entitled to anything, just because you tried your best,  because in real life sometimes your best is not enough and that should drive you to want to do better.

We all are born with the capability to sweat and bleed, but not all of us have the chance to be universally respected. It is up to you to earn the life you want to live. Take the falls and the hits, learn from them and let them fuel you to press on with a renewed perspective and learned knowledge.

Don't look for the easy way out, don't look for handouts. Commit, Work Your Ass Off, and EARN IT! You'll build character, resilience and pride that'll translate to every aspect of you life.

Greatness won't come knockin' on your door, you got to hunt it down. Get out there and get after it! This is your world, shape it or someone else will. Rise up, push yourself to the limit. Earn It. Be Dissident. Be You!
