Smith said this at the end of the
commercial if Miss Smith said all men

who are going to see the professor going
to see the TA and even when the
professor says I don’t meet with you my
ta meet with you you say I want to talk
to your TA I don’t pay the TA I pay you
to teach me so you have to find some
time to meet me if I gotta meet you at

harder preseason when I’m with the
college guys way smarter than me 4.0 3.0
they went to the IU League I schools
came to Oakland from these great high
school most of them are not doing what
I’m doing why cuz it’s not about where
you come from it’s about heart you come
to a place where either being smarting
enough you gotta have heart that’s
number one what’s number two number two
– number two I wrote it down I want to
make sure you got it
this is – these watch this Buster’s
we’re talking about sacrifice now the
important thing is this right where I’m
sitting I only have about three more
minutes listen to me the most important
thing is this
to sacrifice what you are for what you
will become
that’s number two thing you got against
that one to be able to listen to me at
any moment some of you you can make
sacrifices when Monday Night Football is
not on you can make a sacrifice but when
the game come on for some reason you
just attach to it

and there’s some of you if you give up
your cell phone you would be successful
but your cell phone is more important to
you than your success I’m gonna say it
again I’m gonna hurt somebody I’m gonna
hurt somebody some of you need to give
up your cell phone because the time you
spend on your cell phone could be used
for your success the time you could be
using to be successful you’re using on
the cell and the cell phone is not
bringing you nothing but a bill and
somebody has told you you couldn’t live
without it
I’m not going deep not giving up stuff

moment to sacrifice what we are for
where we can be I don’t do well in math

guys for your time

Don’t cry to give up. Cry to keep going. Pain is temporary. It may last for a minute, or an hour, or even a year. But eventually it will subside. And something else will takes its place. If you quit however it will last forever.

"Stop chasing your dreams. Start building them." Don't worry about what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do that. Because what the worlds needs is people who have come alive. Can't wait to drive my own Model S P100D.
