I grew up loving Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Michael Jackon, Prince, Bo Jackson, Emmitt Smith, and Pudge Rodriguez… 
Later, once I got into photography, I grew to love Ansel Adams, Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Elliot Erwitt, and many others… 

What do all of these people have in common? They were some of the best at what they did. They were some of the best of the best. They were pros pros. They were the professionals professional. Regardless if they knew it, they wouldn’t say it. 

Please, for the love of art, business, and for the love of humanity,  don’t  say you’re the best at something. If you are, just be it. Your actions will define you, not your words! 

And if you say you are the best at something you better damn well be.
