I come back from vacation with this message:
The day of decision is here. And here’s the decision you need to make. This is a time that men will become one of three things—mice, monsters or giants. Which will you be?
Only one of them requires you to make a choice, and that is to become a giant. Because that’s going to be the hardest one. That’s going to be the one that will take everything in you, every single day to become.
To be a mouse, all that requires is you just to withdraw. All it requires is you to say, “I don’t want to pay attention to this. I can’t handle this. I can’t think about this right now. This is too much for me. I don’t want to be involved. I’ve gotta to stay away. I’ll just play it out and see what happens.” That will make you a mouse.
You looking at the situation and saying, “How can I profit on this? How can I expand my power on this? How can I exact my revenge? How can I unleash my anger? How can I make them pay?” That’s an easy road. And that makes you into option number two, a monster.
The third one—a giant—is going to be the hardest work you’ve ever done.
This is the time of the mighty, of the giants. This is the time. And you have to make a choice on who you’re going to be—or you will slide into mousedom, you will slide into monsterdom. Or you will work hard to be one of the mighty.
Which will you be?
