To sum up, he disagrees with people being influenced or motivated
by others to do something he
feels they shouldn't be doing, even though we've all heard of successes, not just in the bodybuilding realm but in other areas, singers, actors, who all pursued their dream when nobody else thought they would or could make it in that field.
