I used to think that I needed to take it down a notch to get ahead. 

Be humble about my accomplishments to provide a safe space for mediocrity. 

If I just put my head down and work hard, I’ll get what’s coming to me. 

The lie detector determined… That was a lie. 

If you’ve paid the cost, the world needs to know. Don’t be cocky. Be convinced. 

Those that have a problem with your excellence… Are. Not. For. You. 

Run, don’t walk, away from those threatened by greatness and adjusted to average. 

“…they told me I should come down, cousin, But I flatly refuse: I ain’t dumb down nothing.”- Lupe Fiasco
