Greatness is not by chance, it's by choice

Daily Mindset:

“If people knew how hard I worked to achieve my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful after all.” – Michelangelo

From a man who is recognized as one of the greatest artists of all time.

There’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.

It’s easy to dismiss achievements to factors we can’t control. To say it is by chance. It’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 adversity… we too, can see our potential in whatever we choose to pursue.

Greatness is not by chance. It is by choice.
