[Basketball] Motivation – About The Haters


They said I changed…
Maybe… they were just jealous because they didn’t change
Maybe… They were ashamed because they didn’t change
Maybe…They were dissapointed in themselves that they remained the same
Yeah I changed
Like anyone with ambitions would remain the same
Yeah I changed…
I changed everything but my name
I wasn’t born a miracle to be average
I have absolutely no desire to fit in
No desire to conform to anyones wishes
But I have every desire within myself to improve myself
Every day, every hour…Every minute
They’ll say you didn’t have enough time for them
Well maybe they weren’t worth your time
They laughed at my dreams and my goals
Well maybe they were embarrased
Because they didn’t have any
Maybe their dreams were really nightmares
Maybe their lives were just really a horror story
They said that I was arrogant
Maybe… they just hated my ambition
Maybe… they were too ashamed because they had
None themselves
Maybe… I reminded them what their weakness is
They said I wouldn’t make it to the top
Listen, they said I couldn’t make it full stop
They said that I would fail, that I would fall
That… That no one would believe in me
They gave me so many reasons
But they forgot to ask about my desire
They never asked about my willingness to sacrafice
They never asked if I was willing to
Do whatever it took to make it
Maybe if they did, they would have kept quiet
Or maybe…
They wanted to ensure they had someone
To sit with them at the bottom of the mountain
You know…
With the majority of people that didn’t put in the work
Those who didn’t have the courage
Those who didn’t have the drive
Those who didn’t have the will or the passion
TO FIGHT FOR THEIR DREAMS
To sacrafice, or even to conquer
Maybe they were afraid…
Because they didn’t have what it takes
What it takes to keep up with my drive
To go toe to toe with my passion
You know, they say you’ll never make time for them
But maybe you only make time for the people
That are worth your time
There is a lack of those people
Maybe they are not that type of person
You know, someone once told me:
It is better to be hated for what you are
Then to be loved for what you’re not
You know, it’s better to walk alone and be succesful
Then to walk with those that are wandering aimlessly
Through life and end up in the middle of no-where
But it’s okay
Because when my circle got smaller
My drive got BIGGER
When my circle got smaller, my vision got larger
When my circle got smaller, my circle got stronger
The proof is always in the putter
You can’t fake results!
I move on without them
I know I’m stronger!
I know I’m better!
I know that I am greater!
Without them is a blessing
Without them I keep on growing
Moving forward
I’m constantly on the move without them
You are not a puddle, stop letting them walk all over you!
You are not a door mat
Stop letting them wipe their dirt on your face!
You are not below them
Don’t let them look down on you!
And listen, stand tall!
Walk strong!
And hold your own!
Listen to me, there is no one above or below you
There is no one that is superior or inferior to you
You must always remain hungry
Don’t ever
Ever lose your passion or your compassion
Listen to me
You have enormous drive
But don’t lose your humility
Put yourself in their shoes, but don’t live in them
Live your life
Let them live theirs
Go after your dreams
And let them decide their own fate
You said I would never make it in life
You said I would fail, you said I would humiliate myself
I didn’t have it in me, I was no good
I wouldn’t succeed
You said I was weak
You said I was not strong
I guess they didn’t know what I knew
That I would it make it
Maybe not immediately, but absolutely and definitely
The difference between winning or losing
The difference between those who do
And those who don’t make it in life
And listen to me, it isn’t about talent
It isn’t about any type of magical formula
The difference is character
It is your human spirit
And if you’re going to make it in this world
Living out your dreams
Or living out your nightmares
It is completely up to what you do
It all comes down to you
