Think about the world-changing people you admire most for a moment.

These people can be from any field or walk of life. It doesn't matter. Just think about the truly remarkable people you look up to most.

Now think about how each of these people got to where they are today.

Did any of them just wake up one day as a world-changer? Did any of them become remarkable overnight?

No, the people you admire most probably worked their asses off to get to where they are today. They spent year after year honing their skills and practicing their craft.

To become truly remarkable, you have to be the best at something special. You have to do something above average.

This is why you need a relentless pursuit.

A relentless pursuit is something you commit to with your whole being. A relentless pursuit is something you spend year after year chasing, so that in 5 or 10 or 20 years from now you can truly be considered a world-class expert.

A relentless pursuit requires focus and persistence and dedication. Your relentless pursuit has to become automatic, like brushing your teeth or drinking water. You have to do it every day without question.

Anything less than a relentless pursuit of your goals won't get you where you want to go.

Now ask yourself: what's your relentless pursuit?

What will you be known for?
