“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.” These wise words were once spoken by Thomas Jefferson. What does this really mean though?
In order to achieve great things in your life, you may have to give up the good, stable things you have now. Entrepreneurs who chase their wild dreams leave their stable jobs everyday, this is a great example of giving up something good to go for something great.
If you stay in the same old comfortable good place you’ve been at in life, the odds of you ever achieving something truly great are quite low. This is not because you can’t do great things by doing the good things you do, but because you’re most likely limited in some way in what you currently do. You’re learning and developing skills and working hard, life is good, but going from here to doing some great all of a sudden isn’t generally coincidental. You generally have to give up the good things you do to make the time to chase the great dream, to accomplish that great thing you hope to accomplish.
Until Next Time,
