Nietzsche on Encouraging Excellence

soaring eagleGerman philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche once spoke the words “the higher you soar, the smaller you appear to those who cannot fly”.  The phrase is speaking to those who may be deemed an underdog or have the odds against them.  We are told never to give up, to work hard, and believe in ourselves throughout life’s inevitable obstacles. Nelson Mandella once said, “It always seems impossible, until it’s done”.

What are some ways that you can reflect this philosophy in your life?
