“You have to be patient and put the work in. You gotta believe in yourself. One of the things I do most for people are cameos and while some ask for birthday wishes, most ask for motivation.

What I explain to them is that it has nothing to do with motivation but everything to do with discipline. It’s a truest form of self love.”
