I don't drink these days. I am allergic to alcohol and narcotics. I break out in handcuffs.
At the end of the day, anything I think I'm sacrificing I'm just giving up because it makes me feel better.
Growing up is something that you do your whole life. I want to always feel that I can be a kid if I want. Growing up has some negative connotations. Like, you're not supposed to roll around on the ground anymore. You're not supposed to make fun of yourself. You're not supposed to ride a bicycle. But I'm a Toys-R-Us kid.
I've always felt that if you're not on your side, why should anyone else be. So I always encourage people to be confident, and sometime even a little falsely so, just so you can give yourself an opportunity.
I just think it's good to be confident. If I'm not on my team why should anybody else be?
I know who I am. I'm a dude playing a dude disguised as another dude.
I don't need an Iron Man suit. I'm already a weapon of mass seduction.
People rise out of the ashes because, at some point, they are invested with a belief in the possibility of triumph over seemingly impossible odds.
Mediocrity is my biggest fear. I'm not afraid of total failure because I don't think that will happen. I'm not afraid of success because that beats the hell out of failure. It's being in the middle that scares me.
People never change because they are under threat or under duress. Never. They change because they see something that makes their life seem valuable enough to start moving toward a life worth living.
