Thank you and you're welcome.

I got the Kanye West book "Thank you and you're welcome" for valentines day as you saw in one of my older posts. I still haven't finished it all but there are so many inspirational things in there. Believe it or not. I wanted to post one or two.

"To most people 'to use someone' carries a negative connotation, but I don't see it that way. To 'miss', 'over' or 'ab' use someone is negative. To use is necessary and if you can't be used...then you're useless."

"Would you rather have 100% from an average person or 10% from someone who is outstanding?"

"2 keys 2 happiness. One.. being able to tolerate things that make you unhappy. Or two... being able to change things to make you happy. Now if you have a low tolerance and don't have the ability to create change, there's a good chance you will be unhappy."

"Believe in your flyness, conquer your shyness."

"The missing banister theory. When walking down the street, you can walk in one line perfectly without ever falling over. Now take that same city block, make it a foot wider, and then put it a hundred stories high. You're going to be so focused on the fact that you don't have a banister, that you're more likely to fall because of it. When you're so focused on what you don't won't have. Isn't it interesting how one thing changes everything?"
