Adam’s Final Push will challenge you to find that thing that has been a constant in your life and put your heart and soul into it.
“They say once you start doing what you’re supposed to do and what you’re passionate about, that’s when you become successful.”
“Your expectations are never as bad as the reality of the situation.”
“That’s where magic lives. It lives in the mind of a spectator.”
“If you have that one thing that’s been with you your entire life — you’ve always wanted to do it, you’ve always tinkered, you’ve always dabbled — then that’s it. That’s the thing you need to put your heart and soul into.”
