The problem with most people who don't succeed is that they see options…It's the way I was brought up. I dug ditches, I put in sewer pipe, I put in guardrail. When I was 18, my dad looked at me and said, "Where are you going?… You can't live here….You going to go in the service? (continues in Notes)
(continued) You want me to put your name in up at the shop?…Try to go to college?"… So, I went to a real cheap state school so I could work three jobs. When you don't see options, you don't give up easy. The real problem with our society is we've take the word responsibility and turned it into entitlement, and we sit around thinking that's an option.
Response to the question: "You've said there's a long slog ahead of you, maybe up to four years. Is that something you look forward to or dread?"
