I have always been an “against all odds” person.

When I was young, I knew that the business world is where I wanted to be when I grew up.

I had a friend whose dad was a CEO and that’s what ignited my fire.

While my friends dreamed of being teachers, engineers, doctors… name it — I’ve always been dedicated to becoming a CEO.

Some years later, still at an early age, I entered the business world.

This is when I understood it better.

Smarter people showed up. More experienced. More connected. More something.

What could I do to become bigger?

Become like what I’ve always been ever since — be willing to do something others will not.

That’s it.

That’s the biggest lesson.

If you’ll try to get into the circle of some successful people — you’ll likely find someone who was, and most likely still willing to do what others will not.

Kobe Bryant was willing to make 100,000 shots one summer to correct a flaw in his shooting technique, this was when he was already a part of the NBA All-Star team.

If you want to outperform your competitors, be willing to do something they will not.

If you want to go BIGGER, be willing to do a few things you never thought you will and take the leap with faith.

It’s an edge available and unique to everyone,

Especially YOU.
