I never viewed myself as particularly talented. Where I excel is ridiculous, sickening, work ethic. You know, while the other guy's sleeping, I'm working.
Some suggestions for you :
The things that have been most valuable to me I did not learn in school.

And where I excel is ridiculous, sickening, work ethic. You know, while the other guy's sleeping? I'm working.
When I was growing up, I installed refrigerators in supermarkets. My father was an electrical engineer.
Money and success don't change people; they merely amplify what is already there.

On learning to swim: I'm too big to have some woman hold my stomach and say 'Now kick your feet.'
