How many times has someone laughed when they hear that you have a dream? I have! I laughed with them because I knew that I would have the last laugh. I didn’t write my name on that list. I made it through each door I wanted to go through. When doors wouldn’t open, I smashed them. I found a way to make it through. What does a hungry man do? He looks for food anywhere. What does a mother do for a hungry baby? She finds a way to feed her baby. What does a thief do when he wants something? He works around the system.
I am not telling you to steal to get through the right door—I just want you to sweat. The problem with many of you is that you refuse to stand up after so many falls. Most of you believe the falls will never stop. You are not there to quit. This is one reason your name is still on that stupid list. The list is just getting bigger, and it is not moving as fast as you think. If your name moves up, it just means that the people at the top are either dead or have finally decided to get off the list. If you’re out of motivation, try something new. Try something that makes you happy.
