So? What are YOU going to be great at when you grow up?
If you already ARE grown-up, what will you be great at when you REALLY grow up?

Imagine for even ten or twenty seconds that you are a child. You are told that you, starting today, YOU are in training.
By the end of this year or so, you, as the child, are the one who will know what you are training in, what you are training for.
In other words, you have to train every day, to become someday not far off, very, VERY good at something, maybe even great.
The best and most amazing news should be that you get to decide for yourself what the whole world will applaud you for doing.
You might try a musical instrument or a paint brush or a book or something that will help you to develop those skills.
You have to train at something, if you ever want to be great at anything.
If you do not practice something worthwhile every day, you will always lose.
When you practice every day? Make sure it is something that you most love to do.
This is because most human beings ONLY do their best, and ALWAYS do their best...

at what they love the best.


Pretending that you already knew this yields NOBODY a profit,
                            outside of the slightest profit you tender in practicing for the real thing.
WHY DO WE USE MAPS? WHY DO WE USE RECIPES? WHY WE DO PLAN WEDDINGS AND PARTIES?

ALL THREE HAVE THE SAME ANSWER:


If you do not know exactly where you are going, and how you are going to get there, you will end up somewhere else.


If you are a kid, you have to practice, and if you want to be world-class, you have to practice every day of your life.
If you are an adult, you even greater need to practice, you have already used a large piece of your life, and still,
near-miraculously, can still MAKE time to practice most of the days left to you,
just as would assuredly find twelve and twenty hours per week for kidney dialysis to stay alive, if you needed to.

Practice does not mean bouncing a ball in the hallway, bothering any number of people on TWO floors!
(All you have to do here is pretend OR remember a time of you trying to sleep, and people bothering you).

Practice does not mean asking one of your favorite parents for nineteen expensive items. It does not work that way.

It is not the item that makes you great, if not earned, and let us prove that for you in less than minute of your whole life.

A world-class musician can pick up a cheap, used instrument that is worth twenty dollars, and make beautiful sounds from it.
An idiot pretending to play the instrument, who does NOT practice every day, cannot get good sound from a $10,000 instrument.

It proves that it is not the item. People who practice karate or poetry or reciting Pi, which is the longest number counted by people,
people who walk their children to school each day, with such days turning into hundreds of their best memories, child and parent alike,
people who practice every day usually practice every day because they love what they do and want to be great at it.
Start at the finish line and work your ways backwards. Find ways to get paid to do whatever it is that you most enjoy doing. Yes, just like that.
So, NOW, work backwards and live forwards. It is among the most delicious PowerGem among many great Psychology of Shortcuts PowerGems,
because this one shortcut helps you cut twenty and thirty or even more percent off the time it takes you to get to there from here where you are now.
Start with the end result, and put yourself there, with clarity, color, and and quiet confidence that the result is on its way to becoming your new reality.



So? What are YOU going to be great at when you grow up?

We already know the answer: WHATEVER YOU ARE PRACTICING EVERY DAY, WITH HUNGER AND EXCITEMENT TO GET BETTER AT IT.
What you are not doing with pleasure and excitement for getting sharper at it, you can only hope when mired in mediocrity.

The choice to come from zero to hero happens in a single moment, and we generally get more than a few decades to work out the choices.

If you wish to have people light up when they see you, you need to do the things that light you up from the inside out.
If you are not practicing every day, there is only a tiny chance that you can or will ever become a special, great human.
NEARLY ONE HUNDRED PERCENT OF THE TIME, IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR BRAINS, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR TALENT, LOOKS, OR MONEY.

That's right. Even brain-damaged people accomplish magnificent things... WHEN THEY ARE HUNGRY TO BE GREAT, AND PRACTICE EVERY DAY!

In other words, you are being told now, which is between ten and fifty years early, you are being told far in advance:
Every word going into your head is based on choice. No matter what any human being tells you, including your favorite people,
No matter what any other human tells you, you must understand that greatness is rarely EVER a matter of being born with talent.
Just close to one hundred of one hundred times, greatness is the choice to practice every day, determined to get even one percent better.

You get to choose being a winner or a loser. You get to choose if you only take from the plate, or if you also share, giving TO the plate.
You get to choose in the next sixty seconds of your life, and all the seconds after them, to be just another taker, or someone who is great.







This comes to you from the first human to shatter more than three hundred useful world records, such as learning 16,000 books.
No human has ever been thought to have read more than Thomas Jefferson, who had 4,193 books in his personal, enormous library.
