news flash: you're won't fail because someone "stole your idea." you'll fail because no one wanted what you made. or you suck at execution.
failure is far better than mediocrity. most people mistakenly believe the opposite.
everything seems easy when you're not the one doing the work.
advice for my younger self: 1. you don't need permission to do big things. 2. don't second guess yourself, you're smarter than you think.
