“The heights by great men reached and kept
Were not attained by sudden flight;
But they, while their companions slept,
Were toiling upward in the night.”
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
What are you doing beyond the norm to accomplish your passions? Those who do things that will eventually stand out to others will always stand out to others on their way to making them happen.
