LL Cool J: How Bad Do You Want It?

“Sometimes you gotta think about who’s report, who’s story you’re gonna believe. Are you gonna believe the story of the person that tells you that you’ll never be nothing? Or are you gonna listen to that small still voice deep within you that’s pushing you and encouraging you to take your life to the next level and pursue your dreams. Sometimes people are gonna tell you: ‘you can’t do that, you can’t do this’ simply because.. maybe they don’t believe in themselves as much or don’t have the vision that you have. But you have to remember that a sparrow can’t recognize the lofty ambitions of an eagle. I guess what it all boils down to at the end of the day it’s how bad do you want it? How hard are you willing to work for it?” And what are you willing to sacrifice to get it?
