Just be yourself and everything will fall in line, the way it’s supposed to be. If you’re yourself, that’s the best thing you can do, because you can never go “damn if I’d only been myself.” Live an authentic life and you don’t have to worry about your reputation.

Success isn’t one straight line – it’s a ladder, and there’s always another rung above you to reach out for. Like anything else, there are ups and downs.
“You’ve got nothing to lose
You don’t lose
When you lose
