“Really it comes down to your philosophy. Do you want to play it safe and be good or do you want to take a chance and be great?” – Jimmy Johnson


Which do you want to be – good or great? This is the challenge for many people. They want huge success while also playing it safe. The two rarely, if ever, happen at the same time.


It’s like when you have one foot on the dock playing it safe while having one foot on an unsecured boat which represents the greatness you are capable of attaining. Until you make the decision to jump off the safe dock to get to the great boat, the only thing which is certain is your butt is going to get wet as your legs get spread further apart. Make the decision one way or the other whether you want good or whether you want great.


When you choose to be great, are you willing to do whatever it take to create this in your life? Are you willing to take risk? Are you willing to work hard? Are you willing to be different? Are you willing to fail multiple times to reach your greatness?


These are all part of reaching your greatness. Just know the first step of getting to the greatness comes with the risk of pulling your foot off the security and safety of the dock. I’m waiting on the boat to take you to your greatness!

Do It Different!
