The following comes from "Above The Line" by Ohio State coach Urban Meyer:
Talent is a gift. Greatness is a choice.
Talent can take you to a level of ability that produces good results. But talent by itself will not take you to the elite level. Exceptional performance is the result of an uncommon level of focus and discipline in the pursuit of greatness. Build skill every day and consistently get better. Be coachable. Train and practice Above the Line. Be intentional and on purpose. Complacency is the enemy of exceptional. Grow beyond your talent!
Embrace discomfort. Discomfort marks the place where the old way meets the new way. Discomfort indicates that change is about to happen. Push through the pain. If it doesn't challenge you, it will not change you.
