“Greatness demands everything. Sacriﬁce is only the beginning.
The hours it takes to move something beyond “good enough” crush some, but you are different. You sacriﬁce to create work that is exceptional, timeless, ﬂawless. Offer up your best work — in fact, offer up your self. Judgment is the only way to tell where the bar is, and if you’ve surpassed it.
Judgment is final. There is no appeal.
In order to be considered among the best, you must be judged by the best. It’s time to find out whether you measure up. Will your name be recorded? Will you join the ranks of those oft-spoken names that came before you? You must present yourself to find out. Talent only gets you so far. Courage delivers you.”
