Let me tell you something you already know. Ebaums world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will thumb you down to -25 and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as thumbs down. But it ain't about how much thumbs down ya hit. It's about how much thumbs down you can get and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now if you know what you're worth then go out and get what you're worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the thumbs, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! But until you start believing in yourself, ya ain't gonna have an e-life..
