The Rocky Road of Excellence

12 Feb

stephen-curry-getty[1]Earlier this week, I published a blog post titled, Everyone Wants to Eat, Few Want to Hunt.  The article focused on the “price” of greatness — investment and sacrifice — as it relates to success in any endeavor.

Along those same lines, here’s a nice follow up article from Changing the Game Project.

The Rocky Road of Excellence asserts that “Elite performers, those who are true professionals at everything they do, ask themselves a far different question. They don’t ask “What do I want?” They ask:

“What am I willing to sacrifice for, to struggle for, and to experience pain and discomfort for? In other words, what dream or passion am I willing to suffer for?”

This question is what leads to excellence in sport, in business, and in life.

You must risk being uncomfortable to achieve something worthwhile.

What do you want, and what are you willing to do to get it?
