“We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.” Jesse Owens (1913-1980)
Think about how many people you pass walking on the street. How many interesting conversations are waiting to be had? How many different stories are waiting to be heard? That’s what Humans of New York is all about.
Photographer Brandon Stanton says that when he first started his project there were many who doubted his dream. Boy, did him prove them wrong. Now Brandon has an audience on Facebook of over 2.3 million, he is a New York Times best selling author, and he’s helped raise thousands of dollars for charity.
American entrepreneur Jim Rohn said,
“We all must suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret of disappointment.”
Had Brandon listened to his early critics, he would not be the success he is today.
