"The trust comes in liking what you like, regardless of what your teachers and peers are telling you, and finding your own influences, and then taking the next logical step and making those influences your own. Hard work is no guarantee of success, but there is no success without hard work. Unpack that sentence. Hard work is the key. Anyone who is successful has put in the time and effort to be truly good." -- Ed Templeton
