"To be about something, you have to be without something. You must lose to gain and prove to maintain, cuz like with any other element of life, the yin has a yang. When you don't look forward, you move backwards."
If you look deeply and contextually at the world around you, you will find that there are always two forces working against each other or with each other to either create harmony or chaos. This principal permeates through every aspect of life. Therefore, when attempting to gain something or make progress, you must understand that an opposite force is at play. If you want something, you must give up something. If you want to be happy, you must give up the things that make you sad. If you want to be successful, you must give up the habits that lead to failure. Many times we try to achieve things without sacrificing the very things that will help us accomplish our goals. Embrace the things you must give up to gain, for they are just as important to your success as the actual goal.
