Firstly, you need to aim beyond what you are capable of. You must develop a complete disregard for where your abilities end. Try to do the things that you’re incapable of.
If you think you’re unable to work for the best company in its sphere, make it your aim.
If you think you’re incapable of running a company, make that your aim.
If you think you’re unable to be on the cover of Time magazine, make it your business to be there.
Make your vision of where you want to be a reality.
Nothing is impossible.
All of us want to be good at our jobs, but how good do we really want to be?
The best in our field.
Or the best in the world?
Talent helps, but it won’t take you as far as ambition. Everybody wants to be good, but not many are prepared to make the sacrifices it takes to be great.
To many people, being nice in order to be liked is more important. There’s equal merit in that, but you must not confuse being good with being liked.
Most people are looking for a solution, a way to become good. There is no instant solution, the only way to learn is through experience and mistakes.
You will become whoever you want to be.
