One of my more reliable sources of news comes from a popular youtuber, Philip Defranco. You might've heard of him. He said something on today's show that really struck a chord in me, so I'd like to share it.
"True greatness is found within, and the only person you should aim to be superior to is yourself.
Greatness is not listening to family and friends who say you can’t.
Greatness is overcoming whatever unfair hand you were dealt with this life, and greatness is overcoming your biggest enemy always and forever: yourself.
That’s really the only thing that ever stifles change and sadly it’s the only thing that can provide success. Because at the end of the day, you are the one that is either not doing or doing.
The moment you realize that, the moment you overcome it, that is greatness.
Not going through the motions or throwing yourself against a wall several times expecting a different result."

You are the one in control of your life. Not anyone else. You. Get up and make a change.
