There are those who move through the world at a nice, steady pace, content to let life simply happen around them. These people never question anything. They never ask for more.
Then there are the brave.
These select few demand more and are prepared to fight for it. They're never satisfied with what they have achieved. They're determined to be better. They're willing to take risks, and hold themselves accountable.
The brave take on challenges others might walk away from. They don't charge blindly into the fray, but rather arm themselves with intelligence and creativity in order to outwit, outwork, and outlast the opposition.
Remember, there will always be somebody better than you. Someone quicker, wiser, more experienced, or more talented. It all comes down to who wants it more, who's brave enough to push, to fight, and rise to the occasion.
The truth is, nobody ever became great without first being brave.
