Anybody who has achieved in sports or in music or has traveled globally, anyone who has broken out of their social circle has realized there’s a whole big world out there. It gives you a certain amount of inner authority where you have the courage, when your social circle is dragging your down or not agreeing, it takes what I call Inner authority vs. Outer authority. Outer is authority is “what does the Bible say, what does the Quran say, what do my parents say, what does society say?” It’s always an “ism.” It’s always “I have a decision to make. Let me check with an outer authority to see what I should do” And there’s a lot of people who live that way right now. Inner authority is “I might check with an outer authority, but I’m going to make the decision myself and trust that my opinion is valuable.” – Dean Kosage
