Is it not amazing how one person can expect another person to put forth 110% effort while they give whatever level of effort that is NOT matching yours until they feel it is comfortable for them to do so. I have learned a few things as I embark on 35 years of life. There are levels to success and at EACH level you must be willing to give your all. You must be willing to sacrifice, compromise, be unselfish, and most of all you must be all in from the start.
Often times the most work is needed at the start with laying the foundation. If you are building on a shaky foundation sooner or later your house will eventually fall. Take it upon yourself to give your all at EACH LEVEL and if for some reason it does not work at least you can say you did your best, but if not was it really them or was it really you? Even the team's who don't win the championship make a commitment from Day 1 to do whatever it takes to be the best and 99% of the time it means focusing on those little things that lead to those satisfying big things.
As a former coach told me, "GO HARD EVERYDAY OR SIMPLY STAY AT HOME, BUT YOUR SUCCESS IN ANYTHING YOU DO IN LIFE FIRST DEPENDS ON THE EFFORT YOU'RE WILLING TO GIVE TO MAKE THAT SUCCESS COME TRUE".
