I got this beautiful Banksy picture with me. Banksy, if you don’t know him, is a world famous street artist.


Probably the most famous street artist in the world. It’s this beautiful bootlegged picture I got in New York outside of MoMA the Museum of Modern Art.


It says “Follow Your Dreams Cancelled”.


I bought this picture because in my life, I cancelled my dreams. It sounds like a dark, dark thing that people are like, “Oh my God. You cancelled your dreams?”


That’s sounds so terrible because you know when we’re little boys and little girls our moms and dads tell us that you want to follow your dreams.


We watched Disney movies and they say, “Someday my prince will come.”


We sing songs and we’re all happy about that, but at the end of the day the base of my success has been when I cancelled my dreams.


Here’s the key for those of you frou frou, secret people out there who like the movie “The Secret”.


The key with this is it’s not about my dreams, it’s about other people’s dreams.


Warren Buffet says this, he says, “What you love about you is your hobby. What other people love about you is your business.”


I decided in one point in my life that my rock back is a very selfish, egotistical thing that was all about me.


Now when I switched my thinking to what do other people wanted, I started making a lot more money and became a lot more successful.


At the end of he day, it’s not about me, it’s all about you. It’s about what you want. Now when I say you, I mean other people.


If you can find what other people want and give it to them, you’re going to make more money.


You’re going to be more loved.


You’re going to have more fans. T


here’s going to be more people who are happy to see you because you’re solving their problems.
At the end of the day it’s about solving other people’s problems, not solving your own.


I love what Zig Ziglar says. He says, “You can have anything you want in life if you help enough people get what they want.”


Now go out and help other people achieve their dreams and get what they want.


Respect The Grind,
