Success doesn't have to be something you see only on T.V.
It's less to be something you see only on TV. It's less about being perfect than knowing what you're best at being properly aligned with your context. You don't need to be literally insane, like Jure Robic, but sometimes an ugly duckling can be a swan if it finds the right pond. The thing that sets you apart, the habits you may have tried to banish, the things you were taunted for in school, may ultimately grant you an unbeatable advantage.
