The uncommon ones

There are only a select few who stand out to us as uncommon. Sadly, we seem to look at them as the "weird" ones.

I like to think of them as the special ones. I want to be more like them.

I think we're all presented with the opportunity to prove just how uncommon we are.

Instead of taking the easy way out, clocking out early, or going to bed when they arrive home after a 16-hour shift, the uncommon ones prepare for the next day, clean the house, and get a short workout in.

They hold themselves to a higher standard.

They analyze what they do (or don't do) and fix where they've gone wrong.

They leave no stone unturned in the quest to better themselves and they leave no duty undone when the alternative is to check out early or fill their life with excuses and blame for others.
