Go for the great.

You must let go of what you have in order to reach for what is further.

“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.”
-John D. Rockefeller

Don’t get stuck in the conformity of today.

You may be feeling good. You may be doing good work. You may be good, but good is not enough if better is an option; better is always an option.

Don’t get stuck where you are. The world keeps on moving and changing.

You need to also.

There comes a crossroads. One way leads to where you are currently. The other leads to something new. You may not know what lies down that path, but it may be something great.

You can’t choose both.

You must let go of the good in order to go towards the great.

Greatness lies in the dark, unexplored by many; only seen by those who have the courage to let go of what they have in order to wander into the unknown.

You need to take the leap into the unknown.

Don’t be afraid.
