It’s not one to take lightly, because so much is at stake. Doing this instead of that. Cutting off all other possibilities for a definitive one. Getting good – really good – while at the same time getting bad – really bad – at many other things. You won’t always be liked, understood, respected, called upon, or recognized.
Yes, there is hardship in being great. But it’s what we all want, and it’s not something we’re born with, given, or happen upon. It is a decision.
