How To Achieve Greatness, in 1 Minute

There are a lot of people who are good at what they do, but only a few earn the right to be called GREAT.

While most are content with attaining their personal definition of success, there are a handful of those who would not stop until they achieve GREATNESS.

But wanting to be great, is different from committing to be great. Because when the road to greatness becomes painful, and it will become painful, only those who have COMMITTED themselves to the goal will achieve it.

Greatness requires sacrifices, and there is no sacrifice without PAIN. The kind of sacrifices required for greatness is the ones that make the process continuously painful for a long time.


If you want to be great, then you have to be willing to work until you bleed – if not physically, then mentally and emotionally.


You are crossing over from being good to being great, and you will fail many times. You will fail to the point of pain and frustration.


Focus will bring you to good, but it’s obsession that will carry you through all the blood and tears until you reach your moment of glory.

Not a lot of people achieve greatness, because they’re not willing to endure the pain that comes with it.

If you want to be great, then be willing to shed the blood, cry the tears, and be taken by the incurable obsession to excel in your craft.

Our one minute is up.
