Never be in love with mediocrity,
The half-way,
The piece of broken ground that sits in the middle of your pathway.
That’s half the story but the rest you have to fill in,
That’s half of the effort that it takes for you to win.
Look around at your friends,
Are they really true to you?
Are they there when you are stuck in between the walls?
Are they there to watch — or to help push you through?
Never be in love with tolerance,
Be in love with appreciation.
Never be in love with words that have no action,
When you do that—just know that you are hustling backwards.
