"The Bible suggests, 'be hot or be cold, but be lukewarm and I will spat you out.' Translation: even God doesn't like mediocrity. Live your like 1-10. 1 to 5 is mediocrity, and 5-7 is entertainment. Ladies -- that's the gentleman you date, but you don't marry. And 8-10 is simply excellence. ...Not black excellence, nor white excellence, nor Latino or Asian or Indian excellence -- but excellence, in all things. Figure out what you are passionate about, and then do that thing."
