Our Legends were just men once. Like you, they felt their backs against the wall and saw the fangs closing-in on their throats. Like you, they decided, one day, that they’d had enough. And like you, they decided to become something better than anyone ever thought they could. There is something you’ve always wanted to build. There is a person you’ve always wanted to be. No one will give it to you. You will have to fight for it. With both fists at the ready. Life is short, and grows shorter still. Ante Up, my friend. – wise words from Wale Oyejide, check out his website here.
