"The Road Not Taken" is a source of inspiration for me, because it encourages me to seize opportunities and chart my own course in life.

You need to outwork everyone.

You might be smarter your family might Come from privilege your Daddy might own The company but you will not outwork me This top spot is number one That's mine because not one of you can Outweal me you may have been born with More genetic prowess than I have but you Cannot out determine me you cannot build Me you cannot want me you came out with Me you can't out desire me The bigger your dream is the harder to Grind you might have Small Beginnings You might not have a lot of money you Might not have a lot of resources but There's no excuse and I need you to Understand that the bigger your dream is The earlier you're gonna have to get up The longer you're gonna have to stay up The more effort you're gonna have to put In you know how hard I work to get here I put in too many hours I swear too much Blood too much tear I'm working hard to Get here then nobody give me this I Didn't grow up with wealth didn't nobody Thank me I work for this sweat blood Tears I earn every dime I get I work for This you will not outwork me cause your Height has nothing to do with my work Ethic your face has nothing to do with My workout you will not outwork me You gotta kill what's gonna separate you From everybody else I do things to Separate myself from everybody the Passion that I have the grind that I

Have when I do what I do I got a Different motor I got a different guy I'm always gonna give you my 110 that's The only thing I can ever say a solid Days work if you guys do not do that I Promise you your life will haunt you for The rest of your days from today on you Play whatever your best game is you play That level every single time it doesn't Mean you're gonna score every time but You can always give 120 efforts you Can't dictate what kind of game you're Gonna have you can't dictate how your Body is gonna respond to move it around But you can dictate your efforts your Dream condo you push everybody do you Know cookies and ice cream push it's Alive it's inside how do you know you Feel it you dream about it you eating Sleeping every day so please just push Masturbate push don't quit push I mean Push or win success you have a chance is To control your destiny all of us are Created equal some of us just work Harder some of us just cry some of us Don't make excuses some of us don't give Up and give in what we do with the Pressure is we say I gotta take it I Gotta take it to another level many of You have lost your competitive and get Your competitive ass back act like you Playing basketball act like you playing Football go on that doggone classroom Competes do not give it 120 you're

Giving 70. you're giving 60. you'll give Him 50 and you won't with these people Who've given sweat who's giving blood Who's given tears you want what they Paid for and it ain't free it might be Bigger than me you might be faster than Me you might be stronger than me but you Will not outwork me you'll get a Breakthrough when you fight that's the Hardest part because the Breakthrough That last 10 percent is all mental Toughness it's time to unwrap the Potential you need it's within you and The people that have risen to that level Were no different than any one of us This is they believed it and they're Willing to whoop their clean ass off to Get it it wasn't about the potential it Was melogenetics it was about the Perseverance and it was about being the Hardest [ __ ] worker in the world While you're over there watching me and Talking about me I'm working I'm working Hard I'm taking things to the next level You keep gossiping and I'll keep working You keep talking smacking I'll keep Working you keep focusing on everything And everyone else and I'll keep working And when you finally look around at Where you are and where I'm at you Realize that you have nothing left to Talk smack about and you will lose and I Will win what if the truth is that Changing your life is one away one

Decision one meeting one conversation One extra phone call one extra rep in The gym you start stacking up those one More that's the separator in life we Don't get our goals we get our standards You mean somebody who doesn't have Self-confidence this is someone who's Perpetually not keeping promises they Make to themselves you mean somebody With pretty good Baseline confidence You've met somebody who now keep the Promises they make to themselves you Meet somebody doing superhuman things They keep the promises they make to Themselves and they do one more there's A power to one more when you start Stacking up those one More's not only Have you put more contacts out into the Universe but you start believing I'm Doing something most people aren't Willing to do I'm fixing to get Something most people aren't going to Get I don't have that natural beauty or that Natural Talent or this gift for Creativity or intellect or humor I don't Have any of those things but what I got Is I will outwork you when it's 45 on The treadmill I do 46 when it's supposed To be 20 phone calls I make 21. we're Supposed to be an eight hour work day I Work nine whatever it is I always do one More and what that does is it makes me Eventually think I'm doing things other

People aren't willing to do so I should Get things other people aren't going to Get Understand it's not about what you were Born with it's not about what you were Given where you started or even where You're going it is entirely about what You plant at the center of your soul how Hard you're willing to go after Something how much Focus you're willing To put in your life and how often you Come back to that level of intensity for Who you want to be you have to make a Decision that nobody in your position Will outwork you some people run faster Swim better but mentality is a mentality You're not gonna work me so I'm gonna Catch up somewhere if you are not that Talented you can beat them with time you Can get to the spot before they get to The spot get your butt up and get there Every day is a new day every moment is a New moment so now you got to go out and Show them that I'm a different creature Now cause I'm pissed off for greatness Cause a dream pissed off for greatness That means you're okay with being Mediocre ain't no man in here okay with Being just space and I dare you to Exhaust yourself I dare you to leave Every single thing on the field one Season everything walk off exhausted Wins and losses come a dime of dust the Comfort nobody can judge us because

Operating to the outer limits of your Potential I actually appreciate my Haters my haters keep me grinding I tell Them all the time time if you want to Pay attention to success watch me a lion Never negotiates winning hyena he ain't Waking up in the morning and saying I'm Gonna go hang out with some hyenas cause He don't concern himself with the Conversations of hyenas a eagle flies of A certain altitude and the only other Bird flies at that altitude is another Eagle so if he find himself flocking With pigeons he may be flying too low See sometimes we asking ourselves why my Friends treating me like this you Hanging out with pigeons why are they Talking about me like this man you Hanging out with pigeons Eagles ain't Got time to gossip jeans don't gossip Fool's party King celebrate I might not be the fastest the strongest The smartest none of that crowd but I'll Work your ass fight I wanted more than You it's relentlessness man it's pushing Past barriers it's every time you get Somewhere it's wanting to go to the next Level you guys are entitled to sh well You're entitled to is an opportunity to Show up and be your best everyone's like Oh Craig you're lucky you got this great You're lucky everything you just like Bullsh because before it was locked it Was a belief and every day with no one

Watching at five in the morning by Myself I trained it because I believed In it in hopes that one day my trained Ability collided with an opportunity to Show it off that's what luck is that's What success is nothing subjective in There it's all you you gotta look at how Much you're working you gotta look at How much effort you're making the Intention you're putting out there You're gonna go where nobody else wants To go you got to work the hours nobody Else wants the hours you have to resolve Yourself today that you're going to Dominate but you're not average and Ordinary it has to become a point where You make a decision we're gonna dominate We're here to win we are not here to Play and that takes some intestinal Fortitude I'm wearing a man because I Just excited I'm Gonna Be a Player I Decided at some point I get to just Choose who I am the world doesn't tell Me who I am I write these chapters you Don't need the world's permission you Don't need anyone's permission to be Great only permission you need is from That [ __ ] stares at you back in The mirror every day and a willingness To do the hard [ __ ] work longer Harder and better than anyone so what Are you gonna do are you gonna buy Another success program looking for the Secret recipe that doesn't exist or

You're gonna go do something right [ __ ] now and do something that brings You closer to Greatness that's your Choice If you're going to make it You've got to be willing to be the Outlier The weird one Forget about fitting in Forget about socializing with everyone You need to stand out When people don't understand you you're Doing it right Time to stay focused man It is time it is time to go from Mediocre to meteoric time to decide Clubs partying trying to fit in and Socialize Rub elbows with everybody so people can Stop calling you weird why are you so Anti-social because I'm trying to get it Why are you staying on the basketball Court so much because I'm trying to get It why are you out there practicing in The hot sun when ain't nobody else out There because I'm trying to get it why Are you not clubbing like every time I Text you and invite you to go do Something fun and cool you always Studying because I'm trying to get it The more weird you are is a reflection Of how committed you are to focusing on Your molding and shaping and developing Your ideas and your crap so that when

It's time for you to make your rounds You Gonna Fly When you are misunderstood to the point Where people think you're psycho and You're nuts and you're this and that why Are you in a [ __ ] gym at one o'clock In the morning what's wrong When people don't understand you anymore You're in that spot of obsession and Drive To be the best at what you do you have To be unbalanced to fight every bit of [ __ ] energy and strength that you Have to pull it off and it takes being [ __ ] obsessed to where people think You're crazy you still got work to do Stay on that basketball court stay on That football field call the homies Texting and calling and trying to make You feel bad about being so focused it's Grind season homie it's not about today It's about the future do the work now And all of the [ __ ] that you could ever Want to do for your family your kids Your loved ones it's all going to be on A whole nother stratosphere You got to come out your comfort zone Because your comfort zone is the Deadliest place you will ever be you Should never feel comfortable you should Be happy and dissatisfied you might not Work me for 30 days or 60 days or 90 Days but you ain't gonna beat me over a Year you cannot work but over two years

I'mma get you eventually I'm a dripping Damn faucet I just keep coming at you I'm too damn tough to give up most People half ass half their life all the Time I knew they were gonna get tired They were gonna get down they quit Improving themselves they started Sleeping in I'm not gonna do that so I'm Gonna get up early I'm gonna keep Getting wide I'm gonna say Relentless if You want to show me you want to win that Bad pack your calendar you packed your Calendar that's how you show the world That you want to win because everything Is based off of activity so very hard When you go up against somebody that Shows up every flipping day where you Sit there and say take a damn week off Go on vacation why don't you slow down For a day or a month or two months or Three months please let me catch up Because hungry people they're just more Urgent than everybody else oh you don't Need to work on weekends why do you work So hard at night why do you get up so Early and do that why do you train so Hard why are you reading all these books When we're out drinking beer when you're Obsessed they're like why are you gonna Be so crazy why can't you be satisfied Why do you always gotta get things so Perfect why you spend so much time here When you're obsessed people think you're Nuts anybody ever tell you hey look just

Be satisfied with what you got no don't Believe them get them away from me Because the attempt to get more makes You into something better well they good Party you grind while they go spend Their money you go make it while they Criticize and make fun of you you work Endlessly to shut them up with your Results don't kill them with kindness Torture them with success the best Revenge is massive success

Hey... I'm Jasper!
