“But not many will do it…”
How many people want out of mediocre?
It is the chase of pleasure that will bring a mild sense of happiness. The parties, the bars, the ladies… Whatever it is, pleasure does not bring a deep sense of fulfillment.
But it is the chase of excellence in whatever area of our life will truly make us happy. The achievement of excellence will only come over time. Time has to be paid for excellence.
A true sense of happiness.
For me, and for a lot of other successful people. Books happened to be one of those tools to find excellence.
