I want to share something that Nelson Mandela said to me.

He said, β€œWith the type of fame that you have attained it is important when you encounter your fans that you β€” Reach Your Hand Out and let them Feel Your Flesh. You have to prove to them that you are REAL β€” because people can not aspire to anything they do not believe is Real.”

So I say to you, Congratulations! Enjoy this Transcendent Moment. Go into the streets… Touch them… Let them know that you are real!
