Corey also, started a movement called "Success Can Happen Every Moment Everywhere" it's to give motivation to those without or lack there of. It's to help those who only see things from one perspective because, a closed mind can not grow. Challenge things, question things, be innovative. Your glass is not half empty, it's half full.
This EMBLEM symbolizes "FREE THINK" or "THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX". Because whatever your walk of life we are all "PROGRAMMED" to think a certain way.
The LINES represent the PEOPLE, no two are the same ,but yet WE STAND TOGETHER. It's all in your PERSPECTIVE, is your glass half empty or half full? (which LINES are going up/which LINES are going down) Once you start THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX, the box then becomes a SCOPE and you're more FOCUSED on your SUCCESS. When you have more FOCUS then "Success Can Happen Every Moment Everywhere". Wear something with a PURPOSE, more than just an apparel.
