That's principle number 1, you gotta show up! Listen to what I'm saying.
Because I told you before, life gonna knock you down.
At some point in life, you just gotta stand up to the giants. At point you just gotta show up.
At some point, listen to me. You will never be success if you don't show up.
It was Woody Allen who said it like this... He said that 75%, that's right, 75% of life's success just means showing up.
That's 75% of success and you just show up! You just say, "I'm accounted for, I'm present, I'm here! And I ain't going nowhere! No matter how hard it is, no matter how difficult it is, no matter how challenging it is!"
Like for real, principle number 1, you can't win the game if you ain't in the game.
. . .
So listen to me, number 2, number 2 you better catch this!
You gotta believe in the dark. You gotta believe when you can't see it!
You gotta believe in the dark what the creator told you in the light!
Are you hearing what I'm saying? And when things are bleak, when things are dark, when things seem like, "Hey, we not gonna make it happen, we not gonna be able to win." you gotta believe in the dark what the creator told you in the light!
Stop running man, stop running. Stop quitting, stop giving up, stop giving in.
Not only face the giant, man, go meet the giant. You go get to the giant before the giant get to you.
When you can't see it, you gotta believe it! You gotta call it when all the odds are against you...
Impossible is nothing!
. . .
My last principle is this man, sometimes in life you gonna have to just play through it.
That's right. Let me tell you something about life bros, seriously.
That if you gonna be successful in life, there's gonna be a whole lot of failures between starting and success.. there's gonna be a whole lot of failures in between.
And what you gotta do is learn to play through it.
Listen to me, you can't spend your time worrying about the failures. You can't spend your time worrying about the mistakes.
Like, if you sit there worrying about the mistakes all day, guess what? You take away time, you take away energy from doing what you're supposed to do.
If you're listening to your haters right? You paying attention to your haters, like while you're giving them energy, you're not going where you're supposed to be going!
And the only thing stands between your success.. the only thing stands from you doing what you know you've been called to do.. the only thing, is you!
Nobody can't stop you. Listen to me, if God is for you who could be against you?
Walk into your destiny bro!
You might have to give up some of the luxuries, the movies. You might have to give up some stuff because we at the end of the year and you don't have a lot of time left!
But man, whatever you do man, keep believing. For real, it's your boy E.T man.
Keep believing, play through it... Because you will never get to success without going through that stuff.
Don't give up... don't give in...
