Being the first person to fly across the Atlantic was difficult. No one knew if it could be done or not. Being the second person to do it was much easier.
Being the first doctor to do a heart transplant was extremely difficult because they couldn’t know for sure if it would work or not. Being the second person was much easier.
People forget how difficult it is to be the first one to accomplish something. They tend to take for granted what it meant to overcome the unknown. Overcoming the known is much easier.
If you want to take the easier route, improve upon something someone else has already done. If you want to change the world, be the first.
Have a great day!
