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 couldnâ€™t be farther from the truth. As Vince Lombardi writes, they didnâ€™t and fall into excellence by chance.
The hard truth is that they have worked harder than us. Itâ€™s not because they were born with it, or because they received it by chance. Itâ€™s because they earned it. They climbed the mountainâ€¦ thereâ€™s only one way up.
This isnâ€™t intended to be demoralizingâ€¦ itâ€™s quite the opposite. Itâ€™s *empowering*. Itâ€™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 doesnâ€™t matter where you started. And it doesnâ€™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.
