CAN'T STOP WON'T STOP: 3 Motivational Quotes from P. Diddy's Inspiring Documentary


Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs released his documentary "Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story" on Apple Music Sunday, June 25. The film details Combs’ journey from an intern at Uptown Record to the founder of Bad Boy Entertainment and rap mogul that we know him to be. The story focuses on the stars of Bad Boy Entertainment (including Combs himself, Mary J. Blige, Lil’ Kim, and Faith Evans), documents their history after the death of Christopher Wallace aka Notorious B.I.G. in 1997, and gives a behind the scenes look at their 20th-anniversary reunion concert. "Can’t Stop Won’t Stop" illustrates what it’s like to struggle and still come out on top. Here are our favorite motivational quotes from the film:

“I don’t want the Chrysler that looks like the Phantom. I want the Phantom.”

I love this quote because it motivates you to go after exactly what it is that you want, not to settle for something similar. We may feel like that exact goal is unrealistic so we aim for less when we should work even harder to do the impossible.

“Live by faith, not by sight.”

Many of us have heard this quote, but it’s one of the most important when you want to accomplish any goal. You can put in all the work in the world, but you first have to have faith in yourself and in the idea that what you want to accomplish is possible.

“Greatness is complicated.”

This quote, as well as the rest of the movie, shows that to be great means you have to be willing to be uncomfortable. You may have to sacrifice things in order to get to accomplish your goals, which can be a hard thing for anyone, but you will eventually see the benefits from that and your hard work.
