“Overcoming disability was good. 
Getting my undergrad degree was good. 
Going to the gym is good. 
Volunteering with youth is good. 
Motivational speaking is good. 
Impacting my community is good. 

But I wasn’t born to be good. I was born to be great. Don’t settle for just good. Stay hungry. Keep chasing. Be great. Stay tuned.”
