#BackAtItAgainWithTheseLongCaptions I've been told "you can't" a lot throughout #life. Probably because I always get these crazy ideas. When I applied for the UC system here in California, my high school counselor told me "You can't, your grades aren't good enough." But I did, and @ucirvine came calling.
When I wanted to start a business to ship products to #Egypt, a close friend told me "You can't, you don't know how to run a business, and you don't know enough about #fashion or trends." But I did it anyway, @limitededitionegypt .. thanks to hard work, sleepless nights, and support from my family. I will also never forget kindhearted + amazing people like @taraemad who supported me at some point along the way. thousands of products and hundreds of satisfied customers later, my 'friend' who told me "you can't" placed an order from me 😉
When I wanted to play on my middle school basketball team.. "you can't, you're too short" When I wanted to wear a crown to graduation, "you can't, nobody does that". 🤴
When I wanted to #surf and the red emergency flag was up & the lifeguard came over and said "You can't learn how to surf on a day like this" and then I caught my favorite wave of life.
It's usually by somebody (aside from the lifeguard) who got so lost and confused on their own path, that they decided they'd like to join me on my path instead. You see, once the losers lose #belief in their own ambitions and accept defeat, they go around trying to #create more #losers. Which is why I surround myself with winners. For those of you already doing.. keep doing, keep working. For those of you trying and on the way up, don't stop now. For those of you watching, if you think it can't be done please don't interrupt those already doing it. And lastly for those contemplating whether you can or can't, you probably can. If you read all this comment '🦁' below because lions don't sleep over the opinions of sheep 😜 if you prefer to be a 🐱 that's ok too. #DontTellMeIDontKnowMarketTrends #ICreateMarketTrends #ItsSimple #JustSellAnythingThatsBlack #AndAllTheLadiesWillCome #KeepOnKeepingOn #YouCant #ButICan #DoWhatYouCant #GiveALittleBitMoreThanYouGotToGive
