You want to be great. You want to be the best in your field. You want to be the ONE people look to as the best of the best – today, tomorrow, and in the future.
So why are you just SURVIVING?
If you want to be great, REALLY be great, you must RAISE. YOUR. STANDARD.
The only thing keeping you from getting what you want is when you tell yourself LIES as to WHY YOU CAN’T GET IT.
When are you going to step up, and put your GREATNESS OUT THERE FOR THE WORLD TO SEE?
You’re afraid of rejection?
You’re afraid of being judged?
You’re afraid of putting the effort out and failing?
YOU WILL BE REJECTED.
YOU WILL BE JUDGED.
YOU WILL FAIL.
But that’s the road to success that we EACH must take, if we truly want to show the world our greatness.
It’s not easy. No, no, no, it’s not easy putting your greatness out there for people to see. It’s not easy to learn along the way that how you had envisioned it is not how it all happens.
You Must Be Driven To Greatness
LeBron James has been to 7, SEVEN, NBA Finals, and Won 3.
You think he was gonna give up after losing the first one, or the second one, or the third one?
NO! It made him work HARDER. It helped him realize that the Universe was telling him “You aren’t ready yet.”
He didn’t sit at home on the Internet talking about what he’s going to do differently next year. He wasn’t sitting on Facebook or YouTube posting videos about “How I’m gonna do this” or “It wasn’t fair”.
He took a step back to re-evaluate his journey, and to make adjustments to it. THEN HE GOT TO WORK.
As Steven Pressfield’s book Do the Work states:
“Resistance is a repelling force. It’s negative. Its aim is to shove us away, distract us, prevent us from doing our work.”
You have to be DRIVEN TO GREATNESS.
It’s not a passive process.
You have to choose what INPUTS you’re going to put in, and you have to RAISE YOUR STANDARDS so that your inputs are GREAT. Your inputs have to be PHENOMENAL – from the time, the effort, the focus, the RESOURCES, and the knowledge – they all have to be QUALITY and OUTSTANDING.
Get into the DRIVER’S SEAT, and play the role of Body Guard. You’re driving yourself to success is done through guarding your mind and soul from the garbage that is out there.
RESISTANCE ISN’T FUTILE, IT’S INEVITABLE.
DO THE WORK. GET IT DONE.
