"If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn't seem so wonderful after all."--Michelangelo
Centuries after his death, Michelangelo is still regarded as an artistic genius, his work managing to inspire generation after generation. But his genius came with a price tag, one of sweat, tears, work, and more work. To create such masterpieces as The Pieta, David, and others required he give his all.
I realize that, as much as I say I want to write a best-selling book, I'm not willing to give my all. I allow other things to get in my way: laziness, procrastination, and fear.
Joy for today: giving one's all.
