You add another 10 years of learning and adversity, pitfalls, good, great, bad, and any smart person who wants to grow will learn from all those experiences. A decade ago I just turned 25. I’m about to be 35, and i am just in a better place in my life and have a better understanding of what i want to get out of life.

There is a lot of moments from this decade that would be up there with my best moments, winning the two Miami championships, winning a championship in Cleveland, but my most best moment is marrying Savannah, that’s my number 1 moment.
