In my time, I’ve known men who inspire fear. Do you know what they have in common? They never say how frightening they are.
If there is anything that I have learned in our time together, Barry, it is that the only thing standing in the way of you achieving every goal that you set for yourself is you. There is no limit to how strong you will get or how fast you will go. Everything that you need, you already have.
Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the realm or the gods or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.
Authenticity is what inspires people. If you want to lead people, you have to show them who you really are. Otherwise, you’re just a thousand-dollar suit with nothing inside.
