Dare To Be Great

How much would you pay to be great?  How much are you willing to sacrifice in order to achieve your dreams?  To what length are you willing to go to in order to see your visions turn into reality?  When all have plans, sure.  Many of men and women have come up with great ideas.  But there is only one Oprah.

I'm God fearing.  I'm a great listener.  My work ethic is unparalleled. I'm amazing in bed, and I'm just as good holding a conversation. I'm respectful, reasonable, and honest. I'm super creative. I love helping others win.  So why not me? Why can't Percell Dugger's name be in the conversation as one of the most influential people the world has ever seen? Someone told me I looked exhausted the other day.  I said: You're right. I'm tired of the excuses. I'm tired of the pity party. I'm tired of the overly emotional, hyper sensitive and super reactive energy.  Most of all...
