Most people think being great is about outside recognition. If you get signed to this company or this league, you’re great. Other think it has to do with money or material possessions. A nice house or a certain earnings threshold makes you great, since you can compare yourself to that of others.
All these people are wrong. Becoming great is a choice, one which any of us can make at any time, from any place we’re at. Today you’ll learn why that is, and how to do it, if you so choose.

6:03 Point I: Being great, taking your game to another level is absolutely not a requirement.
8:23 Point: II At the professional level of what you do, everyone else has the skill, education, and whatever it is that makes you special.
9:12 What’s gonna separate you from everybody else is the decision that you make to go to the higher level.

10:55 Most people will not make that decision because it does not occur to them that there is another level, they get to complacency plateaus where everything seems great.
12:12 When people realize what actions will be required to backup that decision, they change their mind quickly.
15:07 There is something involved with a decision. It is the effort, the commitment, the sacrifice, the investment that scares people off.
20:15 Point III: When you take that leap, it is not something that happens to you, it is a DECISION that you make.
