Most people don’t try to be great. They try to be safe. Even less try to be elite. They try to be accepted. Why is it important for you to know? Unwillingness by those who refuse to genuinely try means more opportunity for those who do. But, first you have to get over the false belief that everyone is trying their best because they are not.
If everyone tried their best, and gave it there all, they’d realize they’re capable of so much more. They'd also realize that if they walked into everyday with a mindset that they will do their best, they will bring things into completion. Most people try or say they're trying until they get uncomfortable, scared, bored, or criticized. That’s what stops most people.
Will it stop you?
