I used to be afraid to fail, afraid to lose. "FAILURE." "LOSER." Labels that I attributed to myself when things didn't go as planned. Being prideful and competitive, this just drove me harder to prove everyone wrong. But now I'm fascinated with LOSING. Fascinated with FAILURE. The struggle, the hustle, the grind, constantly getting knocked down. It's getting to the point where I get irritated when I'm winning, because I feel like I'm getting robbed of an opportunity to learn a lesson. When you win, you literally learn NOTHING. You stay the same. @garyvee said something the other day that really resonated with me. He talked about how your entire 20's should be trying to figure shit out, because you'll have plenty of time by the time you're 30 to correct your errors. He said that if he could trade everything he's acquired in the last couple decades to go back and be 20 again and start over - he'd do it, because "time" is the most valuable asset we have, not "more shit". So I just want to encourage you to go take risks, go win, go lose, go fail. You're young, go break shit.
Bad things, it's a lot of bad things, That they wishin' and wishin' and wishin' and wishin', they wishin' on me... #GodsPlan

Two of my biggest passions: Space and Cryptocurrency... Today was an unbelievable day for American technological advancement... First, we had @elonmusk successfully launch the #FalconHeavy Rocket, as well as put a #Tesla in #Space , while here on earth, we had the heads of the SEC and CFTC, Mr. Clayton and Mr. Giancarlo, testify before Congress on behalf of the #Cryptocurrency market... Our generation is about to witness some of the greatest achievements in the history of mankind, so what are you doing in your life today to get a piece of this action tomorrow?
If you've made your mind up to love - NOBODY CAN STOP YOU. They can say all sorts of hard things about you, they can treat you in a very mean and miserable way, but they cannot stop you from loving. The perfect example of that is Jesus. They did everything to him. They beat Him. They put a crown of thorns on His head. They gave Him vinegar to drink. They taunted Him. They spit at Him. They reviled Him. They pierced His hands and His feet. ...But one thing they could not do, was what? They could not stop Him from loving. He loved them to the end. You see, if you love with that kind of love, nobody can stop you. It is the perfect law of liberty. You're the only truly free person on earth because nobody can stop you.
Whatever it is that you that you desire with all your heart, understand once and for all, that it can, and should, be yours. So right here, firmly establish in your mind that which you desire more than anything else. If you're willing to burn your bridges behind you and say once and for all, "THIS IS IT. THIS IS WHAT I WILL DO, AND I WILL NEVER RETREAT, I WILL NEVER GO BACK!", then you have the kind of desire that can only end in success.
You are not designed for everyone to like you. #BeYou
It's crazy to think that #FrankBettger was an utter failure in the beginning, petrified of public speaking, sales, and talking to people - something I struggle with mightily if I'm being honest. It wasn't until Frank met one of the greatest speakers amd authors of our time, #DaleCarnegie , that he was able to raise himself from #FailureToSuccess That is why you will get goosebumps when you realize that Frank learned everything about sales from Dale, and yet Dale left this review of the book... "The most helpful and inspiring book on salesmanship that I have ever read." - Dale Carnegie
#NYC is super serious. 😑😂
Everything worthwhile in life is won through surmounting the associated negative experience. Any attempt to escape the negative, to avoid it or quash it or silence it, only backfires. The avoidance of suffering is a form of suffering. The avoidance of struggle is a struggle. The denial of failure is a failure. Hiding what is shameful is itself a form of shame. Pain is an inextricable thread in the fabric of life, and to tear it out is not only impossible, but destructive: attempting to tear it out unravels everything else with it. To try to avoid pain is to give too much energy about pain. In contrast, if you’re able to not give a care about the pain, you become unstoppable.
When you're out there partying, horsing around, someone out there at the same time is working hard. Someone is getting smarter and someone is winning.

My #values weren't always in alignment with my #dreams When I realized I was going to have to change my values in order to go to the next level, I started making hard decisions in my life that nobody even knows about to this day, but will be the sacrifices and values that I will point back to when everyone around me looks at me and says that I've "made it". It will look like an "overnight success", but I will know better than that. #personaldevelopment #ericthomas #liveyourdream #Entrepreneur #business #nashville #asheville #pisgahnationalforest #pisgah #hiking #outdoors #hardwork #dedication #family #God
