Be cautious of 'friends' who never congratulate you, but suddenly want to hang out. They ain't in it for you.
Don't focus on trying to be 'the best'. Focus on being irreplaceable.
Great Leaders Create More Leaders
Good leaders have vision and inspire others to help them turn vision into reality. Great leaders create more leaders, not followers. Great leaders have vision, share vision, and inspire others to create their own.
I've realized that the type of man that can thrive in my space is the man who isn't driven by his demons but instead, his will to be better.
