Everyone talks about wanting to be great. They claim they want to make a difference in the world.
But is that the truth? Do people really want to be great?
I don’t believe they do. Greatness comes at a cost. A cost many people aren’t willing to pay.
Greatness will cost you:
Many times people don’t reach the level of greatness within them because they’re unwilling to pay the cost to be great. They want to do the least amount of work for the greatest amount of return.
This doesn’t work in real life. To make progress, to become better, you have to pay the price.
Whether that’s becoming a better runner, advancing in your career, or having a great marriage, you have to work at greatness.
Don’t be afraid to work hard. To put in the effort. To stretch and grow. When you do, you’re working towards a better you.
