Lance’s ADVICE –
It’s perfectly okay to fail as long as you do something about it. It’s okay to not meet that goal. It’s okay to do badly in a class. Just make sure to ask yourself, “what can I do differently tomorrow to be better?”
- Surround yourself with people who may not agree with you but those are committed to the same mission
- It’s okay to fail as long as you do something about it
- Consider every opportunity that comes your way, you never know where it may lead
