Why Be Great?

Sure it takes effort/discipline and gigantic focus to get to world-class (and live your greatest life). Sure leadership is about doing what's right versus easy. And I agree that success requires sacrifices. So why do it? Because it'll make you feel good. Which makes it all worth it.

The big idea: playing below your potential makes you feel bad about yourself. Operating below your potential diminishes your self-respect. Limiting what you can do/be/have sucks the energy out of your spirit and knocks the passion out of your heart.

Climbing your personal and professional mountaintop makes you feel good about yourself. Boost your self-respect. Heighten your self-image. Fills you with energy and faith. And joy.

Achievement and getting superb things done with the gifts that are within you is one of the best ways to fill your life with more happiness. Being great - even when it's not easy to do so - is a brilliant move. That yields handsome rewards. Always.
