Highlights 

29:57 Once you learn to turn what's not there into reality, that's the only skill that you build on.

31:30 Key ingredients to me is one, being determined and not giving up. But also being flexible and ready to adapt, because you're going to get hit with all kinds of things.

38:30 Knowledge is power, putting it into action. And, you know, not just talking but, you know, actually doing it.

51:50 When you're going through something, it sucks. When you get to the thing it is that you're able to do because of what you went through, you're a G.

58:21 If you look in front of the easy way, just take the hard way first. Because if you go the easy way, or what looks to be the easy way, you’re gonna figure out that's not it and you got to start over. And then you'll find another easy way and then you're gonna realize that's not it. And you'll start over and you'll be stuck on the easy way. Just take the hard way from the beginning.
