Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum has created entire islands. He is building the world’s tallest skyscraper.
His horses have won many of the biggest races around the globe, but victory in the biggest race of them all has eluded him.
He hasn’t won the Kentucky Derby.
His “run for the roses” highlights an important principle – we can invest a great deal of time and money to pursue a goal, but still far short.
It’s a major accomplishment just to get a horse qualified to run in the Kentucky Derby. In the most competitive endeavors in a hyper-competitive world, it takes a certain amount of luck to win the bigg prize.
That’s why it pays to define success properly. If you’ve done everything you can possibly do to become everything you can possibly be, you’ve succeeded!
All you can do IS all you can do, but all you can do is what you must do.
If you can honestly say to yourself that you’ve given your “all”, you’re a winner!
