    I really relate to #10. People sometimes don’t realize that thoughts are what leads them to all their habits, attitudes and success. The more conscious we are of our thoughts, the more powerful we become and the more value to create for humanity.

    My personal favorite inspiration quote is from my business partner from Jason Fonceca

    “Vision comes from doing what you love”.

    Hey Jason,
    I agree with everything you said. At first I was open mouthed about number five. Quit now. I thought we were doing so good. What is this trick you are pulling, but it ended well. And number eight gives hope. Every artist was an amateur, so work hard. Thanks for that uplifting read.
