“Yes, but the main thing is that greatness is doable. Greatness is many, many individual feats, and each of them is doable.”
― Angela Duckworth, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance
This realization, that greatness is doable, that greatness is individual feats repeated over and over and over again. This gives us hope. It gives anyone who believes this statement hope that they can accomplish something great by simply working at it. Often times we think the great ones are GREAT because of something magical. When really its a repeatable process. So then the challenging part is having the endurance to continue and PERSEVERE.
