This article is directed solely towards those who want to become legendary. If that seems to describe you, keep reading. If you have no intentions on reaching the top of the top, feel free to stop reading now.
If you want to become legendary and go down as one of the greatest to ever do it, you have to become world class at something.
You have to find your niche, master your craft, and in return shine brightly on the world.
Mastery is the only path which will take you from being just another Joe Blow to someone who takes the world by storm and in return becomes a worldwide brand.
It’s very rare for you to become a legend by not mastering a craft.
When you hear the word, legend, what types of people come to mind?
When I hear the word, people such as Michael Jackson, Michael Jordan, and Steve Jobs come to mind. Now it’s apparent that no matter who comes to mind, it’s obvious that the person has mastered their craft.
Without mastery, you’re just another mediocre person.
Therefore the purpose of this article is to get you to open your eyes and find your true calling in life.
Master something. Find your true love and master it.
If you want worldwide recognition, you have to eat, breathe, sleep, your craft. If you fail to do so, you won’t get anywhere.
I’m not going to sit here and say it’s going to be easy because it’s not.
Most people are not cut out for this lifestyle. Sacrifices are the name of the game. How much do you think masters such as Kobe Bryant sacrificed in order to get to the point where he is at today? Sure, everyone will kill to be Kobe, but when you realize the amount of work he has put in, a lot of people would be unwilling to walk in his shoes.
Hard work, dedication, and a commitment to excellence is absolutely required if you want to become legendary.
Legends simply live a different life, a more purposeful and directed life. Their days are characterized with legendary activities.
A lot of people go through life aimlessly and just live and die, not having accomplished anything major. The reason why this is so is because their focus is devoted to a million and one things.
When you grow a hundred seeds, you can’t focus and nurture one. As a result, those seeds aren’t going to give rise to plants which are going to reach their optimal height.
On the other hand, the legendary person plants one seed and they devote their existence to the manifestation of that seed. They do everything in their power in order to make sure it grows to its maximum height.
Now compare these two approaches and it is no wonder why legends go on to become legendary and average people remain average.
For that reason, you need to narrow your focus and pick something you truly love. This is usually the hardest thing to do because we rarely know what we love to do. There is no magic answer to this problem. I wish there was, but there’s not. I don’t have the solution. Instead you just have to do a lot of trial and error and once you find your true calling, becoming world class at it will come easy. Trust me. Once you find your deep rooted passion, becoming a legend will be easy because you’ll be excited about your work. Once you reach that point, greatness will be yours.
The only tough part is finding that passion of yours.
But you need to do so. A life lived aimlessly is a life not worth living. So I encourage you to find your true calling and in return master it. Become the best at it and you will shine as a result.
So the question remains…
