You don't compare yourself to others what does it mean when you get on facebook and you post a picture give yourself two minutes on the news feed because if you're on there any longer what's going to happen, you're going to start questioning yourself. You're going to think you stock everything's wrong, you're going to get start getting depressed, eating chocolate, arguing with your partner on the sofa. You don't want to do that, ok? You want to stay motivated? He want to focus everyone that spoken so far, he's doing what they love their doing, what inspires them? Everybody leaves behind a legacy. What is yours? What is your legacy? Motivation is the difference between success and failure. The next time you see a successful person, don't be better. Don't be jealous. I don't think they're lucky. Instead find out what their motivational factor is. Find out what's driving them by now, it's getting them out of bed what's allowing them to do the art that they want. Tio, this is your life. You only get one shot, it's the reason and sometimes it's the only one and that's ok, just go with it.
