Enrique Simonet “La autopsia” (1890) or in English, “Anatomy of the Heart”
“When things don’t go the way we want or when things seem impossible, like, even the Illuminati is [an example] of this where things seem so impossible and so we create reasons in our mind of why we could never do that. …“Well I could never make that music cause those old guys dictate who does it” and “It’s this now and I’m not that, so I will never do it” or “She has the Illuminati and that’s why she’s this, because she has a secret society that helps her be great and gives her money” and “She has the cheat code” “She’s this because she’s beautiful”….
It’s kind of like we almost make excuses in our mind of why we aren’t great and there’s no excuse. If you’re great, you’re great. There’s no fucking cheat code. I don’t think the Illuminati exists, at least not in the fucking rap world, we don’t make enough money for them to care. Record labels don’t fucking hand select and then go out and secretly mind control you to like hip hop and shape what it is. You shape what it is with what you put your energy into and anyone can fucking do it.
You just have to be a hard worker and not think of excuses of why you can’t do the shit, which is the biggest thing that we all fucking do because it’s fucking scary. I always call it jumping out of a plane; you’re going to have a million things in your body that tell you all the reasons not to fucking jump. You think of a million excuses of why it can’t happen for you but you can fucking jump, man. And [there’s] not a lot of people with balls who’ll do it, but if you stop making excuses and keep fucking hammering it out, then chances are, you’ll make it. You don’t need a secret society or a million fucking dollars or any of that shit.”
