There are thousands of people out there who never aspire to be great because of this popular saying:
“It’s lonely at the top.”
Let me be the first to tell you this is complete bullshit.
It's not lonely at the top...
It's lonely in the middle.
When you make the decision to pursue your biggest goals and commit yourself to excellence...
The people in your life aren't going to like it or understand it.
...and as you continue down the path to becoming the person you truly want to be...
These relationships will begin to fade away … which makes the journey feel lonely.
It's in this transition period where most people fucking quit and say shit like, "It's lonely at the top."
I call this place “No Man’s Land.”
…and it’s temporary as long as you don’t quit.
While it will take some time ... eventually, your actions, goals, and new lifestyle will begin to attract people who DO support your goals.
I’m talking about people who are winning in their lives … and encourage you to win in yours.
People who will provide real value to you.
People who are always pushing you to get better.
Not only are these relationships much more fulfilling … but they'll also help propel you further toward your goals.
But if you don't have the grit and perseverance to make it through the transitional period it takes to accumulate these relationships...
You'll always be stuck in relationships that hold you back.
