“The greater danger for most of – us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.” -Michelangelo Buonarroti
Centuries after his death, Michelangelo is still one of the most influential artists of all time. Imagine if Michelangelo had listened to the people who said, “Being an artist is too hard. Why not do something more practical or easier?
There wouldn’t be a ‘David’ or the mural on the Sistine Chapel.
What is your dream? I mean what is your BIG dream, the one you’ve nearly forgotten?
What if you have that dream for a REASON? And what if you never even try to accomplish that dream?
Maybe there is something you’re supposed to do that will be talked about for years and even centuries.
But if you don’t think big now, and ACT big, then it will never happen.
Progress, Not Perfection
Imagine if you stopped being afraid of doing something because you know you cannot do it perfectly.
And imagine if, instead, you focused on making progress each and every day.
No worries about perfection. No fear that you’re not good enough.
Just an insatiable desire to be a little bit better today than yesterday.
To learn a little bit more.
To do a little bit more.
To make a little bit more progress, each and every single day for the rest of your life.
What couldn’t you accomplish?
