All I can do is say the truest thing I know about most people which is that when they stop worrying about what other people are giving them and they start worrying about what they are able to produce for themselves, your vision changes so completely that you're gonna hear the words of the Dan Benjamin Character and you're not gonna believe those words ever came out of your mouth.
