For anyone with an independent streak, check this book out. It was a great encouragement. The point of it is that you can no longer rely on others to determine your success or failure. Want to write? Start a blog. Sing or Produce? Upload it to Youtube. Photography? Try Instagram. There are no longer gatekeepers to stop you. You just have to Choose Yourself.
Two of my favorite quotes:
“The best ideas come from collisions between newer and older ideas.”
“Success comes from continually expanding your frontiers in every direction—creatively, financially, spiritually, and physically. Always ask yourself, what can I improve?”
