Icey's Daily Game. It's a production of iHeartRadio. What's Up,
Size Team, You're listening to. The Daily Game the compilation
of motivational quotes I've collected over the years that I
found inspiring and helped me through the game of life.
Today's quote comes from one of the greatest martial artists

of all times, and actor, Bruce Lee. Bruce said, the
successful warrior is an average man with laser like focus.
I totally agree, because at the end of the day,
we're all average. You know, you work to become great,
You work to get better. You don't start out in

the martial arts as some black belt. You work so
you start off as an average man, but you have
a focus that can't be matched. When I first started
making music, I was working with Henry Rollins, and Henry
Rollins taught me it's not about being mad at everything.
It's about being really mad at the right shit. So

if you think of your energy as light, if you
focus it across a field, everything is dimly lit. But
if you aim at one target and you create a laser,
that's where your true power is. So you have to
have laser like focus to achieve greatness. As a warrior
as a person, as a businessman, you have to figure

out what it is you're trying to do and don't
think about anything else, focused strictly on that. Now, that's
hard to do when you have family and you have friends,
but I'm talking about when you're in your zone and
your work zone, everything else is blocked out. I've earlier
spoke about worrying about other people and what they're doing
that has nothing to do with what you're trying to do.

So you have to have a laser like focus on
the objective. I was just talking to one of my
producers and we said that women have the ability to multitask.
Men are basically one track mind. That's why if your
husband is watching the football game and you distract me's like, aha, no,

don't talk because he is so focused on that fucking game.
He is not thinking about anything. No bills, no this,
no that, no this Now. Why do people say why
do guys say, oh, while I'm watching a game is
a stress reliever because it requires so much focus for
that moment, can't think about any of my other problems.
That's why video games work for me. I have to

worry about this fucking dinosaur or this fucking monster that
is trying to kill me. I cannot think about my life,
so it removes the other things. So these things require
laser like focus. Women, y'all can laser focus on ten
fifteen things at a time. I don't know if it's
totally as strong, because I could be watching a movie

with Coco and we're watching the exact same movie and
she's asking me what the fuck is going on? It's like,
why are you thinking about the laundry? Why are you
thinking about Chanelle's school? Tomorrow? Watch this goddamn movie with me.
She can't do it. She's a woman. I understand it.
She's thinking about other things that I need to help
keep me alive. So I love her. But Bruce Lee says,

a successful warrior, let's just change it into a person
is an average person with laser like focus, meaning that
focus is what's required to be successful in all aspects
of your life. This has been another ice cold fact

from me, Iced Tea listening again tomorrow when I drop
some wisdom on your ass till then, stay safe, stay smart,
and stay focused on your hustle. Ice He's daily gaining
