And Who Said I Have To Say Sorry?
June 16, 2012
You do not apologize for being great, I don’t care who calls you conceited, arrogant or rude. Do not blame yourself for being self aware and unreliant on the opinions of others. You owe no apology for unearthing your brilliance in a dimly lit space and illuminating it with your relevance.
Refuse to follow the normal routine of dummying yourself down to help those content with mediocrity feel equal to your greatness. Give the raised bar a hand and push it higher daring each subject that feels you should be subjected to their state of mind, the challenging task of reaching for it. One cannot be convinced to reach for success, without first being convinced on the act of reaching.
I will not apologize for being less likely to agree with the slothful or excuse the leech. It is not for neither you or I to judge the less imaginative mind, but it is equally not our duty to entertain it.
I welcome a raised glass to the great, a warm tea to the above average and a hot latte to the achiever. Who said I have to say sorry for not inviting everyone into my company when we share no commonality. The very reason I believe in the need for motivation is so that one can reach to compete. If you want to raise a glass with me, you simply must raise the bar. I will not apologize for that.
I can remember a phrase my sisters friend use to say, “I know you’re sorry, but apologize.”
