Matches for: “excuses” …

Driving Better 3.0 – List Of Excuses


3rd and last part for now, on the topic of becoming a better racer. We have covered concentration, hitting your lines, slowing down and maintaining corner speed, being confident, having faith, and the importance of being a virgin. Now we head into familiar territory for most RC racers, namely excuses.

There is a fine line between a reason and an excuse. Actually the exact same statement can be both a reason and an excuse, not at the same time though, it depends on the situation, and who says it. The actions of the person following this statement determines which it is. If you win constantly, and then you lose, and you say you picked the wrong tyre, and the next race you win again, I’ll lean more to the reason column instead of excuse. However, even here you have to keep in mind, that a better driver would have still won. And that’s the thing, one man’s reason can be another man’s excuse.

The thing about excuses is that it limits progress. If you always come up with an excuse, you won’t be honest enough with yourself to figure out what needs improving, and you won’t put in the right sort of work to improve. Let’s take a look at a couple that piss me off enough to write about them.

1. “The car doesn’t suit my style”.

Another way to phrase this would be, “I’m too stupid to build and set my car up properly”. Ironically every single person that uses this phrase, doesn’t deserve to use it. Have you ever heard a top driver capable of winning say “This car doesn’t suit my style”? No, and you know why not? Because they are good drivers, and they make their car’s work. Even more ironically, these guys are the only guys that actually could say that. When you are one of the top drivers in the world, you are pushing your car to the limit, at this point, a Mugen or a TLR will be different, and one may suit you better than another. You can still win with both, but you will be more comfortable with the other. And that’s key, let me repeat, YOU CAN WIN WITH BOTH, but you will be more comfortable with the other. Top drivers don’t switch to win, they may switch to win more often, and be more comfortable. The people switching around TO win, will never win, because they haven’t figure out that they need to maximise the performance of the equipment they have, and work on their driving.

2. “I wish I could do this or that but I can’t”.

Another way to phrase this would be, I kind of want this or that, but I can’t be bothered to put in the work, or make any sacrifices. I prefer to be comfortable and or lazy. Read the following quotes to understand fully what I mean.


Winners Limit Their Excuses

When James Stewart moved up to the premier class, touted as the fastest man on the planet, doing shit on a dirt bike no one had done before, RC could have began making excuses, instead he stepped up his game.

When James Stewart moved up to the premier class, touted as the fastest man on the planet, doing shit on a dirt bike no one had done before, RC could have began making excuses, instead he stepped up his game.

Ricky Carmichael is known as the G.O.A.T of American Motocross, (Greatest Of All Time), quite deservedly so, after all he won 10 championships in 10 years. Two of those years, he won every single race (24 motos) which is absolutely incredible.  He has famously said that you aren’t always going to have a good bike, and you aren’t always going to feel comfortable with it. Regardless of that, you have to find a way to win. This my friends, is the attitude of a champion.

I think a lot more people need to approach their racing like RC did. Attitude is key, it really is. If you have an excuse every time you fail at matching the best lap times, making the main, winning, or whatever your goals are, then you won’t ever be forced to figure out what you are actually not doing well enough to achieve them. I see this ALL THE TIME. I think that I did a bit of this myself in the past, but I did soon realise that it is no way to go about things. And had I not done that, I would not be here today.

Not giving yourself the out of using an excuse, you will be forced to figure out what the problem really is, if you are trying to improve. The wrong attitude is why you see so many people constantly switch sponsors, change car, change tyres, change this, change that. The excuse is “this car doesn’t suit me”, so you switch. This way, by lying to yourself, you don’t need to work on the setup and driving. I think if you are the fastest driver running a product, ok you may have a case, if you aren’t, you definitely don’t. And even if you are the fastest it isn’t said that you have a case. You have a case IF you have the right attitude. If you are truly doing your best and figuring out how to do everything the best you can, and you still feel like you are at a disadvantage, yes it could be true, but true champions STILL make it happen.

So next time you fail at something, resist the urge of using an excuse, figure out why you didn’t achieve what you wanted, and work on eliminating the problem.

Stop With The Excuses Already – Live Your Dream

So you think you have a good reason for not doing whatever it is you want to do? No you don’t. Stop being lazy and wasting your life, go out there and get after it. Go get what you want. You think it is impossible? Well it is unless you do something about it. Watch this video. Maybe it will help you get off your arse.

The Importance of Guidance

Yes I wrote “he”, it’s easier. This blog isn’t PC.

After some time with hardly any really good new junior drivers, there seem to be a lot of them popping up now. There are now a number of Italian youngsters, and also Spanish, German, Finnish, and American drivers beginning to make a name for themselves around the world. Oh and a Polish guy.

At first they all sort of looked equal, but now after a few more years, you can really tell a difference in their career trajectory. Of course talent and dedication plays a role, but when it comes to young drivers, I think there is one thing that is more important than anything else, and that’s the people behind them.

Here are a few ways to spoil a potentially good driver:

  • It’s never his fault. He is awesome, always, the equipment let him down when he didn’t do well.
  • Any on track incident is never his fault, always blame the other party. Retaliation is encouraged.
  • No need to try other people’s setups or ideas, as I know what’s best for my kid. Don’t listen to others kid.
  • After kid goes nuts on track and blows out, no words of wisdom are spoken, “Car didn’t look good, you will get them next time.”
  • Basically, always looking outwards instead of inwards, for blame, and for excuses, and always looking outwards for ways to improve, different equipment being the first step.

What the above leads to is a driver that doesn’t develop his own driving because he is awesome, he never settles with car brand, tyre brand, etc, because they are never good enough for him, he never achieves greatness because he can’t maximise his own and his equipment’s potential as the focus is on the wrong things.

Here are a few ways to make the most of a potentially good driver:

  • Be fair with feedback regarding mistakes and bad races, and offer solutions and improvements to driving and setup, not even hinting at different equipment.
  • Give objective feedback regarding on track incidents, and condemn retaliation.
  • Listen to other people, but do your own testing and gather your own data.
  • After kid goes nuts on track and blows out, share some words of wisdom that help to stop that from happening in the future.
  • Basically, always look inwards for blame, and reasons, what could we have done better with our equipment, what could you have done better as far as your driving is concerned?

What the above leads to is a driver that develops due to constant honest feedback and instruction, and understands the value of settling for a good brand and maximising it’s potential. He has a great chance of achieving greatness as the people around him don’t give any room for excuses.


Bad For The Industry

Here are some posts that are bad for the industry.





Stupid people should refrain from attempting to put other people down, because the only outcome is that they will look more stupid than they seemed before they started talking. Normally, the more ignorant and the less successful you are, the more you talk about, and hate on other people. The statement below is a great one. The reason for this is simple. Small minds cannot comprehend new ideas.

An Opportunity Is All You Need

I look at Fajar staring at me, and I remember that we got this life, and that’s it. Everyone starts at a different place, but we all deserve a chance. Be a good person and you will become surrounded by good people. It’s just how the world works. I have been given a lot of opportunities by a lot of good people, and you can be sure that I have made the most of them. I am extremely grateful for all the support I have received, and I hope the favours get returned over the years, and that I can pay it forward to others too.

I have been working very hard over the past few years, and at a point lost 99% of all available hope. Now things are looking much better, and all signs point to great things ahead. Motivation and dedication level up to 100% again! Remember that behind almost every overnight success, there’s years and years of thankless hard work.

If there is one thing I have learned in life, it’s that everything starts with you. Your own attitude and your own decisions determine everything about your life. There are no excuses. It’s easy for me to say, posting blogs from my privileged position, but I have met people who have gone through true hardships, and they prove this theory to be true, time and time again!

You know all those things you have always wanted to do? You should go do them.

On another note, I re-discovered pickled beetroot today. Man it’s good!

Time For a Break

revToday was the last nitro race for me of the year. It didn’t go very well. Qualifying was ok, King TQed, Drake was 2nd and I was 3rd, but we were all within about 5 seconds. The track was very tricky, and this time I made the mistakes that I didn’t make last week. Laptimes were good, and I felt good. But then in the main, once again it didn’t work out, but this time I drove really bad. I really sucked in the main. I didn’t get a good pace going at any time. I’m not making excuses, I wasn’t on the pace, but I really need to figure out this racing at night thing. My eyes loose focus on the car, and I find myself losing the car in sections for a fraction of a second, and then I have to “find it” again. It’s really frustrating, I don’t know how to fix that. I’ll do a corner or a jump, and find myself staring at where the car WAS. Anyway, what a terrible race to finish of with. I still finished off 4th, but not the way I wanted to end the year. Drake won from Colin Herzig, and King. Great job Colin! He was dialed all day, finally all that wrenching is paying off, maybe if you practice driving too you will start winning lol.

On a good note, Garen Hagobian drove my loaner buggy, which is identical to mine, to TQ and win in the 40+ class. This loaner buggy is an idea which we will continue with in 2017. We will have an extra car at the races for anyone to try (Adam Drake is already on the waiting list (no joke)). We will also have a car available to be shipped out to people for 1 week at a time, just so you can try it out for yourselves. We will require a deposit, but it will only end up costing you the shipping fee, for shipping it back to us. That’s it!

Finally, we got a new junior driver out on track, and looks like he will be sticking with 1:8th nitro for 2017, so that’s good. Always good to get new people into the sport!


In other news, rumours surrounding Dave Wentz grow even stronger. Today Dave was seen sporting a ARMA Energy JQRacing hat, and also incredibly won a motor, pipe, and a new transmitter, perfect for his new JQRacing buggy!


JBRL Finals – American “Adrien Bertin” & Psychology


Today I raced the JBRL Finals at the ProLine private test track in Banning CA, a couple of hours east of LA. The track is really great, big, fast, rough and technical. I love it, and…I forgot to take a panorama. This will have to do.


Anyway, this time I had a better deal going into the race, as my American Super Size “Adrien Bertin” showed up, purely for support. Formerly known as World Champion Greg Degani, he is slowly accepting, and easing into his new role of American “Adrien Bertin”. Step one was to get my engine program sorted out. A few texts to Ryan Maifield, and some finger waving and yelling at me, and I put a bigger 7.5 venturi in that thing, S manifold 2104 on the Worlds Edition, Greg leaned it out, and boom we had some more power. He stopped calling it a turd and began showing my REDS some respect.

“quit pussying that section” and he asked me “why I am so slow over there”, told me to “drive faster”.

Next “AAB” took issue with my driving. The thing about Degani is that he is pretty brutal and honest with his feedback, kind of like me. Basically he told me to “quit pussying that section” and he asked me “why I am so slow over there”, told me to “drive faster”. Brutal. It’s good to have someone point out where you are being a bit shit, this way you can focus your efforts there. On the other hand, it makes the praise, although rare, much more rewarding. I did get a “WTF happened, you looked like Maifield out there, rippin’. I have never seen you drive like that before!”. I could have packed up right then. I’m done, I did a good couple of laps.

Not fast enough to make mistakes and TQ. WHY WHY?

Not fast enough to make mistakes and TQ. WHY WHY?

Anyway, qualifying was good again. I feel like I should have TQed, my car was SO good. I just made a couple of stupid mistakes. I clearly had the pace, but Adam Drake got the TQ and I ended up 2nd. But that’s still good, as behind me we had Harris, King and Herzig. Going into the main, the only thing that I was thinking about was the springs, should I run my own grey springs, or stick with the HB Yellow. I didn’t change, but in the main the track was already really bumpy in places, and I think I should have changed. Regardless of that, the car was still good, and I had a good race. I ended up 3rd, but I led for a couple of laps, I mixed it up with Drake and King, and probably looked like I belonged up there.

Right now, the thing is, that I am trying to break into this top group of drivers, and at this moment I can every once in a while be up there for a moment, but two things still need to happen. 1. I need to gain the respect of the top guys. 2. I need to mentally feel like I belong up there. Let me explain.

  1. If you are in a race, regardless of talent level, but more so the higher up the rankings you go, if there is someone ahead of you that you view as clearly inferior to you as a driver, you won’t have the same patience, and show the same respect to them that you would to someone you regard as equal, or almost equal to you, not to mention better than you. I do it too, let’s say I’m in a main in Finland, where I know I can win, and I have a couple of tough competitors, and I feel like I got the other guys covered, easy. Well if one of those “inferior” guys are ahead of me, and my competition is getting away, I will be impatient, and aggressive, because I feel like I “deserve” to be ahead of this guy. Even if I don’t take the guy out, it’s still a different situation. Well you can bet that if I’m ahead of these top guys in any future race they will be thinking “not this effing guy” and they won’t hesitate to muscle by me. Davide Ongaro has been going through the same thing, but maybe now with the Worlds performance he is “in”.
  2. Another thing is all in my own head. If I’m out there thinking wtf I just passed this guy, or I’m catching that guy, I’m not focused 100% on my driving. I need to be comfortable racing better drivers than me, and eventually hopefully, on the given day, realise that today at this track I am as good as this guy, or better than that guy. I need to feel like I belong, and gain confidence, and drive with it. Sort of “I don’t give a shit, I’m just going to go wide open here and beat you.”

Anyway, these races have been good for building confidence, and learning more about the car, and my driving. Next week I have one more race, and then I head to China, in order to prepare everything for 2017. It’s now 6 or 7 months since I publicly announced on here that the car is good enough, I need to focus on my driving, no excuses, let’s see what I can do. After banging my head in the wall all this time, finally I am beginning to see some improvement. I am driving better in a race situation, and I’m able to turn faster laps. In qualifying, when I hear the announcer I am able to push more, and take more risks to do a faster lap. I just have to keep on pushing for that faster lap and see what happens. I am looking forward to next year, and hope I can put in a good result or two.

Look how excited American

Look how excited American “Adrien Bertin” was when he got his pit stop bonus of Thai food!



Top 12 Thoughts – Drivers & Cars

Well, that wasn’t too bad. We were right about a lot of things. We got 10/12 in the main right, we were right that a married guy won’t win, nor a driver with a stick radio, and that some drivers will Neff out under pressure. Let’s take a look at the main contenders, and a few others.


David Ronnefalk 1st (Prediction 2nd)

David was just as good as we expected. After finding the right tyre, soft grid irons, he was on the pace in qualifying, his confidence grew, and he never looked back! Luckily AKA’s new double down tyres worked and lasted well, and with a great 60min main drive where everything looked to work perfectly he took the win. The race was close for the first half or so, and it definitely wasn’t clear that David would win it, but after about halfway, he started clicking off laps and just motored away, and was suddenly behind the other guys on the track instead of in front of them. He did crash on the last lap on the 2nd to last corner, which could have ended in disaster, like Cody did on the last or next to last lap in Thailand. It seems like it is difficult to play it safe in those last moments. Heart stopping stuff.

A well deserved win for David, who has been supported by his father and Adrien Bertin for many years. I was sceptical about his chances after he switched to HB from Kyosho, because of his driving style, but he proved me wrong, by improving, remaining aggressive but being even more precise and in control.

HB Racing

David’s car looked very good, and it looks different to Ty’s HB. David’s HB looks high on the track, and he drives it within it’s traction capabilities, often going up on two wheels and just keeping it pinned. It’s awesome to watch. Ty’s car looks lower and softer, rolling more and not squaring up or recovering from mistakes or loss of traction as fast. Ronnefalk’s car looks more like a 1:8th scale style setup that can be driven hard and punched, and Tessman’s looks more like a car you have to drive with finess. Of course driving style comes into play too, but that’s not all of it I think.


Robert Battle 2nd (Prediction 9th, problem in final)

Even without taking into account the hospital, resting at the hotel, medication, and the still present kidney stone, 2nd place at the worlds is impressive, so I suppose now it is even more impressive. Robert had some bad mistakes where he lost a lot of time, and then he was stuck in the battle mid pack, causing him to lose touch with the leaders. At some point he got some space and began clicking off fast laps and drove up to 2nd place. I actually think Ongaro would have got 2nd, but he had issues in the end and lost out.


We thought the Mugens would struggle a bit if the track was loose and remained smooth, but if it got bumpy they would be strong. Wrong, they were fast from the very beginning, with Ongaro leading the way. Actually Ongaro’s Mugen was in our opinion the best handling car at the event. He could get away with insanity and it would just take it like nothing happened and keep going. Robert’s car was good too but looser and not as fast and safe looking as Ongaro’s.


Ty Tessmann 3rd (Prediction 4th)

Tessmann was Tessmann, but this time it wasn’t quite enough. He had the same car as the winner, different setup, the low cg OS cooling head, and ProLine tyres. If you want to look for reasons/excuses look there. Otherwise he just got beat. You can’t win them all. Tessmann has his pace, and can run it until his chassis wears through. At this race that pace just was not quite fast enough, for whatever reason.


Jared Tebo 5th (Prediction 3rd)

We predicted that Tebo would be a factor, and he was, even leading the main at one point. However, we also considered the fact that the pressure might get to him, which may lead to mistakes. In Tebos own words ”battled hard early, got a bit lost mentally in the middle, and finished strong to get back to 4th”. As Degani bent over to marshal Tebo’s car he could not help but think if Jared was thinking about his comments. (I may or may not have made up that last bit, as I don’t believe Tebo crashed by Degani) On that topic, did you see Degani marshaling out there? One of the fastest marshals. Who would have thought?


The cars looked good, they had the pace, but mistakes kept Tebo behind, and Boots had his other issues too. I think that mistakes happen due to driver error as well as setup, and on bumpy tracks like this one the setup that the Kyosho drivers use makes it more likely to flip over in a sketchy situation. Normally the Kyosho is very good at staying upright, but with the latest HB, and with the Mugens, the Kyosho guys can’t hang in all conditions anymore. Go back to the super rough Argentina Worlds Warm up when Ronnefalk dominated and absolutely blew everyone away in qualifying with his Kyosho, it was setup. It wasn’t what they typically run. It didn’t want to flip over. The bar has been raised the last few years in my opinion, and if you want to remain at the top regardless of track conditions, some changes need to be made.

Ryan Cavalieri 5th (Prediction 5th)

Ryan looked great in the semi, won it, but got a 1 second penalty, which someone pulled out of their behind, for muscling his way past Tessmann right at the line. Racing incident in my opinion, a tough call to make. Not an intentional take out, going for a gap that was closed by Tessmann, side by side contact.

Unlucky for Cavalieri to flame out on the line. The starts were terrible anyway, no structure, at least know the rules before you begin running mains, that would help. Anyway, flame out for whatever reason, which led to starting in the pits and battling in the pack. Driving up to 3rd-4th at some point, eventually finishing 5th. Solid performance, but I feel it could have been quite a bit better had he been able to start the race properly. If Ryan could have been battling at the front, I think the race may have been close to the end. He is too good of a driver to let an opportunity slip through his fingers.


A loose version of the Mugen. Close but no cigar. Two cars in the main was good of course, but when you looked at them, and then you looked at Ongaro go round, you could tell something was different.


Davide Ongaro 6th (Prediction Just misses main)

For me, Ongaro was the most impressive driver at the worlds. I think he surprised everyone with his speed and mature driving, even those close to him. He could switch up his lines when needed, he was fair and careful (even too careful) around other drivers (something the other Italian drivers could learn from), and his throttle control and ability to place his car where he wanted to was evident. He jumps really well too and clearly showed that he is a future champion in the making.


Reno Savoya 7th (Prediction No prediction)

Savoya is the other of the two drivers we missed for the main. Actually we didn’t even seriously consider him as a contender for the main. Degani thought that Savoya was the most impressive driver for making it into the main, as bad as his car was handling the bumps, the rear end wanting to go all over the place. That’s true talent right there. Also, then going on to beat all the TLRs in the main is an achievement, specially in America. Savoya was at best when he raced for Mugen, winning 3 Euros in a row if I am not mistaken, and getting a podium at the Worlds. Since then it feels like he has tried to make every car he has run like a Mugen, but you can’t do that. It looked like the stars were aligning when he raced for Xray, only to leave/be kicked off the following year. I think Savoya’s career could have been much different, and a lot more successful if he had been able to find a home and stay there throughout. Switching brands almost every year makes it almost impossible to win at this highly competitive time.


Seemed like it was critical regarding setup, not looking the best or comfortable on the bumpy slippery track. Apart from Dakotah in the semi, and Maifield at times, the TLRs were just a bit off the pace at this race. No big technical jumps, no point and shoot driving, more European style track just not the TLRs strong suit. We wrongly expected the Losi’s to be really good here, we did not realise how non-American the layout turned out to be. I will write about the track and about Europe vs America in a separate post later. Now we move on.


Ryan Maifield 8th (Prediction 1st)

Maifield showed his incredible talent in the semi final, where he was actually looking like he wouldn’t make the main. Then somehow he pulled it all together, drove like his life depended on it, and made it into the top 5. In the main he was just never a top contender. He made a lot of mistakes, and didn’t quite have the pace. I don’t know how to divide the “blame”, but it really looked like this wasn’t the best track for the Losi cars, and to compound (no pun intended) the problem, not the best conditions for the JConcepts tyres either. At this point, it doesn’t matter if you are Maifield, you can’t make up a disadvantage like that at this level.


Ryan Lutz 9th (Prediction 7th)

Ryan made the main as expected, because he is a great driver. So precise and fast, but driving carefully, not flat out. That’s what it looked like. He wasn’t really ever a contender in the main. It may be because of his absolutely terrible taste in t shirts, or…


Too hard to drive for 60 minutes was what we expected, and it looks like it was true. Ryan was reacting to what the car was doing, and correcting, instead of punching it around the track. In a way the car seemed to be controlling what he could do, not the other way round. I think the very different suspension geometry they are running needs some more work, for it to be good on other than the standard smooth medium grip jumpy US tracks.


Elliot Boots 10th (Prediction 6th)

Boots made a charge to the front during the early part of the race, but began falling back, mainly due to two factors. 1. Wrong tyre choice, ending up with slicks probably quite early on. 2. No runtime, stopping at 6 minutes. The strange thing is that Maifield who also drives punched was able to go 7:30. The difference could be the fuel, Boots running Byrons, and Maifield on Sidewinder, which has proven to have good runtime in the past. Boots was probably disappointed after TQ:ing the 2 first rounds of qualifying, and being so dominant in the early stages. He dropped off a bit after that, but came back strong with a great semi, and a good push to the front in the main, until his problems began. To win you need to have all parts of your program on point, and working right. He obviously has the speed. It may also have been that stick radio catching up to him!


Dakotah Phend 11th (Prediction 10th)

I don’t know what happened between the semi final and the main, but whatever it was, it was not good. He was so far ahead in the semi that he flamed out and still made the main. In the main I didn’t even notice him. Degani did, when he marshalled him. Unfortunate turn of events, based on his semi final pace! I don’t really know what to say.


Kyle McBride 12th (Prediction 8th)

You didn’t think of this guy did you? Well we did, and how genius do we look now? Kyle is a smooth driver, and good in mains, and clearly good when the track is difficult. His engine sounded like a turd in the main, I don’t know what was going on there. Just sounded too rich the whole time, and he never really got going.

Outside The Main:


Josh Wheeler

We picked Josh to make the main, and early on in the race we were looking good, as Josh posted top 10 times. But then he began having his “Wheeler Issues” with a runaway or two, and a flameout in his 1/4 final. Not quite able to squeak it in this time.


Spencer Rivkin

Rivkin was a natural pick, I mean he is the current National Champion after all. But this time the track wasn’t his cup of tea. Long finals on a bumpy track like that is not what Rivkin specialises in. An electric driver and used to smooth tracks, it was not to be. Never really had a chance in the semi, even though he bumped easily from the 1/4.


Cody King

About a year ago Degani predicted that Cody would finish 10th at this Worlds. He finished 14th, so not far off. Degani laid out a plan for Cody. After breaking up with his girlfriend, he should have rented a place in Vegas, and lived there for the year, and practiced his ass off. Then he could have a good shot at being the 2nd double champ in history. Otherwise it would be 10th place according to Greg. Well it didn’t happen, and 14th was the result.

I thought Cody looked good for part of the semi and was in a position to bump up, but he must have had a couple of bad wrecks because he fell back suddenly and just missed the bump up. An impressive run of Worlds A mains from his first Worlds in 2008 through 2010, 2012 and 2014 comes to an end.


Luis Gudino

Honorable mention to Luis Gudino, at nitro challenge he almost knocked his head off, forgetting the finish line sign at the step down, and proceeded to eat shit and blow out his knee. This time he made the lap without major injuries. Looking forward to Australia 2018!



It’s Not Only About Money

Can I get sponsored as I can’t afford to race? I’m grumpy because I don’t have money. I wish I could go somewhere warm this winter so I could practice.

Three unrelated statements you might say, but they do share one minor point. They are all false.

There is one thing that is way more important than money, and that’s attitude. With the right attitude you can be happy even if you don’t have money, you can make the most of what you have, and keep on racing, and you can figure out a way to spend some time practicing somewhere warm in the winter.

You don’t need to have the money, you can figure out a way to get that, but what you need is the right attitude. I know because I made it happen, and if I can so can you.

Quit making excuses and settling for less, justifying your inaction with excuses like “it’s not possible”. Fuck that, get out there and get what you want! Forget about the haters and even the majority opinion. You don’t need their blessing. They are just mad because they don’t have the courage to follow their dreams, and you do.
