Jimmy Butler story in WSJ

Fun article about his coffee business but I enjoyed this quote especially:
'I remember going through life all the time and I was always saying, “I know I can do this, I’m going to prove this person wrong.” And then I grew up finally and decided it’s not about proving them wrong. It’s about proving myself right. We get too lost and caught up in what everybody else is thinking, what everybody else is saying. Then you forget to listen to yourself and your own voice and let all that other outside noise cloud the bright spots that are already in your head. I live by that daily now: Everything that I do is not because somebody said I can do it or cannot do it. It’s because I’m like, You know what? I’m going to do this. I’m going to go prove to myself that I’m going to be able to do it.
