Great people have the ability to make things look easy. When we see the finished product, it’s easy for us to take for granted the amount of work that goes into to making that product what it is. That work is often very difficult because it requires consistent and intense effort. Sacrifice is also a significant part of becoming great at something. There are many things (and opportunities) that greatness requires that we give up in order to succeed in a specific area. I truly believe that greatness is possible for all of us to achieve. We just have to be willing to do the hard things that don’t gain recognition. We have to grind in the dark while no one is watching so we can execute at a high level when it’s game time.
