“The little kids put things on their heads, act silly, do stupid things, and then their parents are like “Billy! You can’t do that in Walmart! This is just not the place for having fun!” You know what? I think we should all be at Walmart putting stuff on our heads. We need to take a cue from the four-year-olds of the world. Putting things on your head is fun. Fun is good for you. There’s no Walmart police force telling you not to put things on your head. MORE THAN A DOZEN PEOPLE COMPLETELY IGNORED ME WHEN I WAS SITTING ON THE SIDE OF THE STREET GIVING AWAY PEEPS.”
And when I think about that sunrise that I woke up to that morning, I just feel like I got as close to nowhere as I could get, and found out that it was more of a place than anywhere I’ve been in a long time.
Winning is wonderful and it’s more wonderful if it hurts on the way there. I think people sometimes really don’t understand that - that fun isn’t fun unless you have un-fun stuff to compare it with. People talk about that, but it’s hard to actually believe it. What we generally think about success is that the act of succeeding is the success. But really what winning is, is the culmination of a ton of hard work and frustration. If you don’t have the hard work and frustration, there’s nothing there. That’s the stuff that gives winning value. The more important and the harder fought the win is, makes winning even better.
