“Excellence is never an accident, greatness is always always a deliberate result of assuming complete responsibility of ones ongoing expression.
The good and the mediocre rely on their natural abilities or take advantage of whatever circumstances that have been provided them. When circumstances change, their comfort zone vanishes and they are exposed.
The person who is internally motivated, while they may be shaken by environmental upset, can transfer their earned acumen to any field of endeavor.
To believe anyone is specially endowed for greatness, and not oneself, is magical thinking and binds the soul.”
