The early bird may get the worm, but it’s the second mouse that get’s the cheese!

-Paul Orberson

This is so true, when you think about it.  Many people think that you have to be the first and the quickest to the punch, so to speak.  However, in a lot of cases you don’t actually have to be the first, but the next.  Amazing things happen everyday and who’s to say that you can’t be the one doing something or being amazing?

It’s that whole 4 minute mile analogy that we’ve all heard numerous times, but it stands true.  No one knew that it was possible to run a mile in under 4 minutes until someone actually did it.  Roger Bannister became famous for that in 1954 and shocked the world.  There were plenty of runners before him that were great, but then he came along and was greater!

This is my whole point, we can be great!!  Even if someone came along before you, don’t give up and say it can’t be done, go get it!! Get your cheese….just don’t break the other guy’s neck to do it, that was figurative!
