Apogee (n.) 1. The point in the orbit of the moon or a satellite at which it is furthest from the earth. 2. The highest point: (e.g.: his creative activity reached its apogee in 1910.)
We live our lives looking through binoculars, unaware that history will view us under a microscope.
We keep hoping that something will come along and stimulate our sensibilities and promote our ideas to greater influence and gain. The flaw of all humanity is the notion that we deserve a break, so we will sit here and wait for it.
Yet history will peer back on our deeds and reflect on where we messed up our GPS, missed a U-turn or put the brakes on.
So therefore, we can all become guilty of claiming our apogee long before we have actually achieved our highest point.
Life is a mysterious collision of confidence and insecurity.
Confidence says, “Given the opportunity, I can do this.” But it must be accompanied by a mistrust that such an advantage will come our way without us hustling for it.
When I study greatness, I find two components. People who achieve their goals do the following:
- Work on their gifts until they are prepared for the moment.
- Create the moment.
I am not a believer in destiny. I am certain that the acquisition of my dreams will be executed by the energy of my effort.
What will be my apogee? I am not there yet.
