Too many want 5 minutes of fame instead of working 10,000 hours to become great. Fame doesn’t last. Character through hard work does.

Too many want 5 minutes of fame instead of working 10,000 hours to become great. Fame doesn’t last. Character through hard work does. – Jon Gordon
Think about those people in your life, those people you’ve encountered in the past, that inspire you. Think about leaders that light a spark . . . that bring energy to a room. In any field, in any organization, there are those with talent and those who work. The elite have identified their talent and put in the work.
Don’t seek fame . . . seek effort. Identify your interests, develop your skills, and do the work. Strive to be the leader that inspires others . . . be the person others want to work with because of your character.
