We live in a time…

We live in a time where pretty much everybody who has a phone and Internet access can do great things.

Whatever great things look like to you.

But the only way to get there is to do the uncomfortable.

The things most people are afraid of doing.

And it doesn’t really matter anymore where you’re from.

Or where you live.

Or what you’ve done in the past.

Or how much money you have.

It doesn’t matter whether you live in Africa, Asia, Europe or what not.

If you’re willing to do the uncomfortable, the things that everybody else is afraid of doing, then you can rise to the top.

Then you can have an impact.

In your community.

In your city.

In your country.


It’s never been easier.

Everybody can make it work.

No matter your background.

It’s still very hard though.

And you’ve gotta be willing to put in the work.

A lot of work.

More work than anybody else.

When you set out to do the uncomfortable longer than anybody else then you can make it work.

But there’s no guarantee.

For anything in life.

Most people want to do the comfortable things.

The safe stuff.

But that will only get you to a place where there are millions of other people competing for that one single chair to sit on.

No matter where you’re from or where you live, you can always rise to the top of your community.

How do I know?

I don’t know.

I’m just a regular guy from Germany writing every single day…
