 Just keep striving. I didn’t go to college, cause I knew this is what I wanted. And for some people they might look all that as being real negative, but if you want something, you are going to keep going after it and you are not going to give up, no matter how long it takes. I didn’t just pop up on the scene yesterday, I been here a while and it’s just cause I wanted it that bad and I kept my faith in God and believed that He was going to be with me all the way and He is still here and He is still giving me blessings, so you know that’s what I would tell you. And take care of your business first.
