If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start.
This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives, jobs
and maybe your mind… Go all the way.
It could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.
It could mean freezing on a park bench.
It could mean jail,
It could mean derision, mockery, isolation.
Isolation is the gift,
All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it.
And you’ll do it despite rejection and the worst odds
And it will be better than anything else you can imagine.
If you’re going to try, go all the way.
There is no other feeling like that.
