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?
