🙋 Most People
You aren’t like most people. And that’s a good thing because…
Most people don’t actually want to run a marathon. They want to say they finished one.
Most people don’t want to be public speakers. They want people to clap for them.
Most people don’t want to write a book. They want to be a best-selling author.
Most people don't want to learn a musical instrument. They want to impress others at a party.
Most people don't want to start a business. They crave the status of being called an entrepreneur.
Most people don't want to volunteer. They want the self-satisfaction of feeling charitable, maybe even the tax break.
Most people don't want to master a new skill. They want the attention that comes from being considered an expert.
Most people don't want to be fit. They want to look good for their vacation Instagram post.
Most people don't want to read to expand their minds. They want the prestige of a well-stocked bookshelf.
Most people don't want to invest in relationships. They want the social currency of a large network or social media following.
Here's the thing—doing it for the applause, the likes, or the external validation won't make you a better man.
What makes you better is the process, the journey, the learning, and the intrinsic satisfaction that comes from achieving something meaningful.
So, don't be like "most people."
Be driven by purpose, not by applause.
❌ Make More Mistakes
Making mistakes is the privilege of the active — of those who can correct their mistakes and put them right.
