“If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful after all.”


Whether it is art, sport, business leadership, financial success, or, more importantly, being a good friend, colleague, parent or partner, the path is never easy.  Those we admire who operate at exceptional levels at any of these pursuits got there through intensity, focus, drive, perseverance and passion.  Talent helps – a lot – but won’t get you there unless you are willing to put in the time and effort necessary to achieve mastery.  Are you willing to do what it takes to be exceptional?
