“You’re always going to have critics and naysayers and people that are going to tell you that you won’t, that you can’t, that you shouldn’t. Most of those people are the people that didn’t, that wouldn’t, that couldn’t. Don’t be defined by outside sources. You go after your dreams,” he told the media Saturday.”
