Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen.
Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope.
Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator,
not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high,
but by doing what you can to make grace happen…, yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.
Charles R. Swindoll
People always accuse me of being motivational in a way,
like it was a bad thing, but that’s just how I was raised.
My mom raised me in a positive environment,
with lots of love in my heart, and that reflects in my music.
I’ve always thought of acting as more of an exercise in empathy,
which is not to be confused with sympathy.
You’re trying to get inside a certain emotional reality or motivational
reality and try to figure out what that’s about so you can represent it.
Oh, I would love to be a motivational speaker.
I have pulled myself out of a million potholes,
and I can see the potholes ahead of me.
That doesn’t mean that I could always do that so perfectly
for my own life. I totally fall in potholes.

How do you know you’re going to do something,
until you do it…???
