“Success is not an accident, success is actually a choice.”

“Sometimes people make it seem like you have to have certain prerequisites or a crazy life story in order to be successful in this world.  But the truth is you really don’t.  It doesn’t matter where you come from, what you have or don’t have, what you lack or what you have too much of, but all you need to have is faith in God, an undying passion for what you do and what you choose to do in this life, and a relentless drive and the will to do whatever it takes to be successful in whatever you put your mind to.”

“Success comes after you conquer your biggest obstacles and hurdles.”

“I’ve always believed that success for anyone is all about drive, dedication, and desire.  But for me, it’s also been about confidence and faith.”
