The difference between 0 and 1 is the greatest difference in the world.

It’s the difference between nothing and something.

It’s the difference between never doing something and proving to yourself that you can do that something over and over and over again.

I believe all of our life’s successes and failures are dictated by the numbers 0 and 1, because when we prove to ourselves that we can do something just once everything changes.

You will never remember your 100th sale, your 16th single, your 27th home run, your 1,000th cold call…

But, you will always remember your 1st.


Because going from 0 to 1 shows you that you can — and knowing that you can is the only battle we are up against — it’s the battle between nothing and something.

And something is everything.
