Greatness is within reach if you're willing to pay the price

The cover story of Fortune magazine, What it Takes to Be Great, validates the message of hard work in a chosen area over a period of time.

Greatness is within reach of those who are willing to pay the price of discipline, hard work, focus, and applied effort. Talent helps, but it's not the barrier to great achievement that many make it out to be.

A book gets written by creating hundreds of thousands of characters on a page, one after the other. There's no shortcut.

A company gets built one customer at a time, one employee at a time, one product at a time.

Tony Robbins observed that most people overestimate what they can do in a year and underestimate what they can accomplish in a decade.

Focus on what you can do today to build a stronger business and you'll be amazed at what you can accomplish over time.
