I gave up a lot of things in exchange for my success.
The Occupy movement needs an organizing principle, and – just as the Tea Party did – it needs some actual measures of success. Choose one candidate whose agenda is squarely within that of the movement and make his or her electoral success a focal point.
I don’t know what keeps me going. Sometimes I wonder… I think it’s just pure perseverance and wanting to succeed and having that burning desire to always have success.
If you come into success too soon, you’ll burn out and be finished before you know it. If you let the maturation process happen naturally, you’ll be happier with yourself in the end.
