  • "We grew up with the sense that where we were almost didn't matter because we were becoming something greater".
  • "Where I excel is...ridiculous, sickening work ethic. When the other guys are sleeping I'm working. When the other guys are eating, I'm working".

  • "No matter how talented you are, your talent is going to fail you if you are not skilled".If you don't study. If you don't work really hard and dedicate yourself to being better every single day....
  • "You don't set out to build a don't start there.You say I'm going to lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid. And you do that every single day. And soon you have a wall".
  • "I want to do good. I want the world to be better because I was here".
  • "If you are not making someone else's life better then you are wasting your time. Your life will become better by making others lives better".
  • "I want to represent the idea that you really can make what you want".
  • "The first step before anybody else in the world believes it, is that YOU have to believe it. There's no reason to have a plan 'B' because it distracts from plan 'A'.
  • "There's a certain delusional quality that all successful people have to have. You have to believe that something different can happen".
  • "Confuscious says 'He who says he can and he who says he can't are both usually right' ".
  • "Being realistic is the most commonly travelled road to mediocrity. Why would you be realistic?"

    "It's unrealistic to walk into a room and flick on a switch and for lights to come on. That's unrealistic. Fortunately Edison didn't think so".

  • "There's a redemptive power that making a choice has. Rather than feeling like you're an effect to all the things that are happening. Make a choice. Just decide what it's gonna be, who you're gonna be,how you're gonna do it. Just decide.And then from that point, the universe is going to get out of your way. It's water.It wants to move and go round stuff!"
  • "I've realised to have the level of success that I want to have, it's difficult to spread it out and do multiple things. It takes such a desperate obsessive focus....You've really got to focus with all of your fibre, all of your heart, all of your creativity".

  • "I'm motivated by fear".
