My favorite quote I ever heard, well I have two. The first one is my own “I don’t make right or wrong choices, I make decisions” It was a lyric that I said in a song called “#SmellTheFlowers” which I wrote to kind of put a light on my self-doubt, and to overcome it. It was so impactful to me because when I wrote it I was like-“Man, someone is going to resonate with this bar” We spend so much time thinking about our actions after acting on them, and regretting it- or we never make a choice for fear of failure so much that we end up failing in the first place. This quote, helps me snap out of that self-conscious fear that would’ve prevented me from doing the things I wanted to do. In efforts to not look coincided, my second quote is “Treat others how they want to be treated” It’s a variant of the Golden Rule “Treat others how you would want to be treated” with a caveat that transforms the Golden Rule from being subconsciously arrogant to consciously mindful.

I find it is a quote that works in every aspect of life. Read more>>

It’s what keeps them coming back. Read more>>
