The word great is relative to the average.
As the average moves up so does the great.
The great are the ones that are pushing the boundaries.
Pushing the limits of how we see the world.
And pushing the boundaries of how much pain they endure to make it.
The sacrifices they take.
This part is not trivial.
There has to be a significant amount of pain and challenges that you have to endure.
It’s understandable that most don’t do it.
It might even be rational.
You may not be cut out for it.
It’s better to know now better than later.
