I'd hold you up, Say to your mother, This kid's going to be the best kid in the world. This kid's going to be somebody better than anybody I ever knew And you grew up good and wonderful. It was great. Just watching you every day was like a privilege than the time come for you to be your own man and take on the world and you did. But somewhere in London line, you changed. You stop being you. You let people stick a finger in your face and tell you you're no good. And when things got hard, you started looking for something to blame, like a big shadow. Let me tell you something. You already know the world and all sunshine and rain both. It's mean and very nasty place. And I don't care who you are, how tough you are. It will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently. If you let it, you, me or nobody is going to hit its hardest life. But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you could take and keep moving forward That's how winning is done. Now. If you know what you're worth, then go out and get with your work. But you got to be willing to take the hits and not pointing figures, saying You ain't where you want to be because of him or her or anybody. Cowards do that darling, too. You're better than that.
