The Fizzle Show sent out a great episode this week. It’s a foundational show, asking the question – How do you actually be successful?

Chase sums up an effortlessly profound mental shift at the 44-minute mark:

“Be like Ira Glass. Choose to pursue being great at something, instead of just being great.”

We often fall into the trap of trying to “be great” somehow. Take yourself out of the equation, and the path to greatness becomes a lot simpler and a lot more reachable.

Become great at something. Bonus points if it’s something you love.
