If you want to be average, do average things.
It follows naturally then that:
If you want to be extraordinary, you need to do extraordinary things.
See, the crazy truth is that most wildly successful people were (maybe still are) completely obsessed at one time or the other.
Is that kind of work ethic and sacrifice worth it?
Should you quit? Keep going?
Well. That’s for you to decide.
“Do you want to be average? Do you want an average life span or an average lifestyle? Do you want an average marriage? Do you want to raise average children? Do you want an average spiritual life? Do you want average financial results? Do you want an average amount of influence for good in your community? “No! Of course not! If you could wave a magic wand over your life, you’d create results in every part of your life that are wildly beyond the average. You would create results—you would create a life—that was extraordinary in every way. “Therefore, in order to produce results that are wildly outside the average—to produce results that are extraordinary—you cannot afford to think like average people think. You cannot act like average people act. You cannot be what average people are . . . which is normal.”
