There is somebody out there less talented...
There is somebody out there less talented than you
Who is just willing to be a bit crazier than you.
Who is willing to just work a little harder than you.
Who is willing to get just a little more uncomfortable you.
Who is willing to ask for what they want.
Who is willing to put themselves out there and take a risk.
One day you will meet this person.
And they will beat you.
Stop pretending to be too cool for school.
Stop worrying about what other people will think about you.
Stop just doing the bare minimum because you have the talent to do so.
Now is the time to get a little uncomfortable.
Now is the time to look a little foolish.
Now is the time to put in just that little extra.
Make that post.
Record that video.
Make that call.
Ask the question.
One of my favorite quotes for a long time has been this.
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
It's ok to be unreasonable sometimes.
Progress depends on it.
