BRAVO
You passed the first test: Desiring to be great.
And choosing to step up to go for it.

I admire that.

You’d be surprised how rare you are and that action is.

I can tell you right now…
You DO have the attributes of greatness.

How do I know?

Because we ALL do.
But only those who CHOOSE to be great, will.

You have taken that first step.
And I applaud you for it.

You are my kind of people.

Let me let you in on a big epiphany I had a few years back…
And this is a big productivity lesson for you too.

I’ve decided I no longer will work with people who NEED help.
I thought that was my mission in life.

Man, was I wrong.

I found myself trying to convince people.
People who, well frankly, couldn’t be bothered.
I wanted it more for them than they were willing to do for themselves.

This drove me nuts!

It was frustrating and disheartening.
So, I cried “Uncle!” I tapped out.

That is when I decided I would only work with the willing—
People who WANTED to succeed and are willing to do what it takes.

You see, needing and wanting are very different.
One has desire behind it, proof by stepping forward.
And action, proof by stepping up to invest what’s necessary to make success happen.

See, you decided to request an invitation…
To DO something about your better future proves you’re on the path to greatness.

You ARE the exception.

I look forward to taking you on this INSANE adventure together…
The heroic journey where we search for the very best within you.

Your fearless guide,
-Darren
