Do You Own the Story Behind What You Make?

To hit the target that matters most, we have to shoot with our own ammo.

We have to hire ourselves, fight for what we believe in and execute our own vision, on our own time and on our own dime, fingers stuck in our ears, ready to rock on a moment’s notice.

That way, it won’t matter if we win or lose. It won’t matter how many people don’t love us. We’ll still earn attention and respect for doing our own thing. We’ll still walk home happy. And we’ll still have the satisfaction of hiring ourselves.

Because in the end, it doesn’t matter if the world likes what we make.

It only matters if we own the story behind it.

When the story we tell is our own, we’re always successful, even if we’re not successful.
