Greatness happens in ways most people don’t pay attention to.
There isn’t anything special about it. There’s no secret birthright required.
- It’s hard work.
- It’s difficult.
- It isn’t easy ever.
But what people miss is that those who are great at anything find a way to consistently do what most others don’t want to.
And they do it whether they feel motivated that day or not.
They do what they think is going to make them better, all the time. They can’t imagine not doing it.
They enjoy the grind of the hard work. They enjoy the challenge to improve. They enjoy feeling the competitive nature that drives them.
This working to improve themselves matters greatly.
In some ways as much as the victories, financial rewards, or championships. In the blink of any eye the season and year are over. Great people may tally their winnings and accolades but they get right back to work.
When you’re at the top, that becomes an emotional element. The work, the effort, the focus, the concentration, the sacrifice; it’s always somehow worth it.
It feels good. It feels right.
Warriors, scholars, innovators, entrepreneurs, athletes all go through the same process emotionally.
No practice or work routine is always exciting and filled with a rush of adrenaline. But it gets done anyway.
Will you love what you do enough to become great at it?
- To embrace the dull and repetitive elements of getting better?
- To face the grinding work with discipline, focus, and determination to improve?
When you do those things, greatness begins to take form in your craft.
You become great at anything day by day through your immersion in the subject. It gathers momentum through your relentless effort to fulfill a dream or burning desire; to be or do something extraordinary.
