It is highly likely that whatever greatness resides within you, technically resides just beyond you. If it were within you, you would already be doing it. That is one of the great paradoxes of achieving unthinkable feats… the greatness that resides within you, paradoxically, is just beyond reach, or what you know as your ‘comfort zone.’
Just as Roger Bannister first broke the 4-minute mile barrier in 1954, he had multiple failures leading up to that moment. He, like every person I interviewed, had to stretch themselves beyond their comfort zone. That is where your greatness lies. That is where your ‘it’ lies… just beyond your reach.
Your ‘it’ is begging you to push a little harder, to get up and try one more time, to reach just a little further.
