We all want to be exceptional and live exceptional lives. Yet so very few accomplish it. It is safe to say that for many of us, it is only wishful thinking. We dream about it but we never take the time to make a plan and find a path.
In many ways, it is a skill that can be acquired through hard work. We all have the potential to be outstanding in a chosen field. How many of us take the time to study our profession the way a surgeon studies human anatomy? Do you know everything there is to know about your chosen profession? Are you an expert in your field?
If not, why not? How long would it take? 1 year, 2 years, 5 years? If you devoted your heart and soul to mastering a skill or a chosen profession, could you become one of those rare individuals who are experts in their field? I bet you could.
You would then become exceptional by definition. Too many of us cruise through life, uninterested in doing whatever it takes to become masters of our craft. And yet, with time and dedication, we could accomplish this and much more.
There will only ever be one Bruce Lee. This is true. But we don’t have to be the “one in a million” individual to improve our lives beyond belief. We only need to be in the top 5 per cent. That is enough. That will do. And all it takes is time and hard work.
What are you waiting for?
