Man Up: Persist in Silence. Don’t Work for Fame.

It is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness. ~ Seneca

Quietly become great, and quietly do good. To man up requires not fame but persistence in silence.

We live in an age and a society that promotes vanity. We do things to broadcast them and not simply to do them or enjoy them.

Your journey and your mission in life is to do what you must to the best of your ability, but without telling every Tom, Dick, and Harry about the work you’ve done or the deeds you’ve done.

The road ahead is rough. There will be losses, it will be riddled with failure. That’s just what life is. Create greatness by hustling and persisting, not broadcasting your every victory and moment of ease.
