From a man who is recognized as one of the greatest artists of all time.
Thereâ€™s the intoxicating myth in our society, that there is such a thing as natural, born talent. An “anointed” factor that leads to such heights of achievement.
Yet here he is, Michelangelo himself, expressing his backbone to success.
Itâ€™s easy to dismiss achievements to factors we canâ€™t control. To say it is by chance. Itâ€™s harder, to see that he just simply worked his ass off.
When we recognize that it was just a different level of true grit, true hard work through near-unbearable adversityâ€¦ we too, can see our potential in whatever we choose to pursue.
Greatness is not by chance. It is by choice.
