This concept was first brought to me by a co-worker named Bob. He read a book that contained this principle and always referenced it from that point on. The idea is contrary to what you would likely believe, that bad is the enemy of great. But it’s not. You see, if things are bad enough, you would likely put in the necessary work to fix it.
Good, however, is the true enemy is great. You likely have a good car, good home, etc. So you stop. Hey, things are good enough, why go the extra mile? So you live in your normal day to day existence and wonder why things aren’t progressing for you.
The solution is to continue to put in the effort to take things from good to great. If things aren’t great, you must treat them as unacceptable and continue to fix it until it is. That is, if you truly want more than you currently have. Believe that you deserve greatness and don’t stop until you achieve it!
Never stop believing in yourself! Talk to you soon 🙂
