We are all born with the same goal. This is to give ourselves everything we want and rightfully deserve. As many have discovered, this is no simple task. It is a task that requires patience, determination, and hard work. Once we honestly think about it, one of life's pleasures doesn't come from having all of the fame or money in the world, for some of the wealthiest and most famous people in the world are also some of the most depressed people in the world. Our real sense of happiness comes from our ability to look into the mirror at the end of the day and realize that we are indeed proud of ourselves.

Though, if we do find ourselves refusing to settle for the Average life and choosing to rise and achieve everything we desire, there is something we need to understand about the greats in the world.

What separates the greats from the average?

Throughout our history, we've seen some of the greatest Innovators, inventors, actors, musicians, and athletes make our world into what it is today. These people weren't naturally smarter; they weren't more naturally more fit than you, these people were no different than you and me. The only thing that set them apart from you and me is one thing: they made a decision.

They took whatever skills they had, drive, and determination and decided never to stop until they finished their goal.

They refused to live the life of the average people and reached their full potential. They did all these things not only to change the world and make their mark in history but to show us that we are capable of such things as well. Whatever goal it is in life you seek, if you find change for the better, it is only one decision away.

Make the decision

Do not fear the outcome. If you win, great, if it ends poorly, great, if it doesn't turn out the way you want it to, it is only a setback, not a failure. It's not a losing experience; it's a learning experience. Readjust, rethink it, and move forward. It's only a failure if you give up. It is a win/win situation.

You can take as many setbacks as you want and they will genuinely not stop you from achieving your end goal.

Do it quickly, adding time to a decision will only allow doubt to settle in and adding time won't better the outcome. Make the decision. Every great innovation, career, and achievement started with a choice. Make yours. We can all achieve anything we want in life and reach our full potential and levels of success. Take the first step, and show the world what your dreams are.
