“With the internet now, you can find yourself on one website, to the next site, to the next, and you’re like, ‘How did I get here?’ The danger is that when you start to subscribe to these places, the content that these people are pitching and preaching. I’m always open to hearing what people say about the brand, what people think about the product, but the reality is I’m not going to internalize that. We’re lost often because we don’t know where we’re headed. It’s like having a map. When you start to internalize what people say your product, the way you dress, your personality, it’s because you don’t have this road map of where you’re trying to go. The road map doesn’t mean you know everything every step of the way, but you have a sense of what direction you’re going. Being lost is finding yourself, finding your perspective and creating this mental compass in your head that puts you in the right direction. You can’t know everything completely, because then it’s no longer fun. That’s what I mean about being lost and helping people that are lost, helping them find some clarity in what they believe in. If you stand on what you believe and what really means something to you, you’ll never regret or get mad about not making this much money. Money doesn’t make you happy. It’s the love of what you do, and the clarity and understanding of where you’re headed.”
