Terry Crews – Do What You Want
Terry Crews shares talks about the importance of ignoring the doubters and pursuing your dreams, because you can do anything you want to do.
“I grew up in the hood, man, in Flint, Michigan, where I’m from. And they said, ‘Terry Crews, you can do anything you want to do. You can do anything you want to do.’ And then as soon as you go to class, you tell them what you want to do, and they’re like, ‘Man, what makes you think you gonna do something like that, man? You crazy?’ And I said, ‘Okay, wait, which one is it? Now, can I do it or can’t I do it?’
“And so I started to call people on that. I started to call people on that. I said, ‘You know what? I’m going to go for it. I’m going to just try something that I’ve never done before. I want to design furniture. I want to be a part of this thing, and so I’m going.’
“And you know what happened? The stuff worked. People started doing … it just started happening. We took the furniture to Milan. We went in front of all the best people in the whole world and it got accepted, and people were saying how great it was and how beautiful it was. And I said, ‘Man, don’t never let anybody talk you out of something like that again.’
