From good to great, there is a certain amount of distance between them. It seems that there are many millionaires (good) in the world, but there are a few billionaires (great).
In this article, we want to talk about us: from good to great people who think “good” is enough. We always let go of what we are doing the moment we realize we are good at it in an acceptable way.
The idea behind this article comes from “From good to great” by Jim Collins, which I suggest you read.
This book (and the content of this article) will help you fly and rise. You don’t have to think that “good” is enough. You, your life, your health and your mind must be great, and you don’t have to give up until you get there because I assure you, you will!
Sometimes, we are good. Maybe even very good. Others don’t mess with us. For example, others say: “This person has a good salary.”, “That person has a good marriage.”, “He talks very well in the crowd.” And “She is beautiful.”
Don’t be deceived. These are horrible pitfalls you might fall into.
Fewer people are billionaires, and most of them stay millionaires. Why? Because they believe “good” is enough. It’s enough to seem rich in front of others.
It is the same in public speaking. My clients come to when they are desperate, and the situation is terrible, acceptable or good. Then they will become good or very good at public speaking or even the best in the country, but they give it up after being good or even the best.
These people think they are in an acceptable situation because no one is judging them or saying something upsetting.
I believe the worst situation is being good. It means you see being as bad as ordinary as it’s possible. So you prefer to be bad instead of good or average.
Why? Because when you are bad, you know you have weaknesses. If you see the students, you’ll notice there is no change for the average ones.
We have never read some people’s biography and see how important he is but then sees he’s only an ordinary student. That person was undoubtedly a great student too.
In this book, From Good to Great, Jim Collins analyzes 500 businesses in their 15 years of growth. The companies had the same industry, and the comparison is interesting.
You’ll know how amazing this book is when you read it. I hope this article was useful and an encouragement to buy and read motivational books.
