“The man on top of the mountain did not fall there”
When we see the best of the best compete, they seem to make it look effortless. So effortless, they get labeled with terms like “naturally talented” or “gifted”.
But this couldn’t be farther from the truth. As Vince Lombardi writes, they didn’t and fall into excellence by chance.
The hard truth is that they have worked harder than us. It’s not because they were born with it, or because they received it by chance. It’s because they earned it. They climbed the mountain… there’s only one way up.
This isn’t intended to be demoralizing… it’s quite the opposite. It’s empowering. It’s proof that we too can climb, if we so choose to put in the work. That discipline and commitment over time can get us there.
It doesn’t matter where you started. And it doesn’t even matter where you are right now. All that matters, is where you want to go, and how hard you are willing to work for it.
