I love world-class sports, whether football, basket ball or golf. It is competitive and performance driven. To be successful in any sports requires that you become better than average.
The most rewards, awards, money and endorsements also go to the Most Valuable Player. So a Mikel Obi will never earn as much money as a Lionel Messi, who of course is nothing short of a legend, unless of course he improves his game. I have nothing against Mikel, perhaps on a local level on the Nigerian Super Eagles squad, he may pass as a great player.
The same principle applies in business. To get paid the best, you must be the best. Get better, improve daily, never settle for good. Good is the enemy of great, great is nothing compared to LEGENDARY.
Never stay stagnant. Keep moving up and I’ll see you at the top!
