There’s a great story about Michelangelo and the statue David. Michelangelo said when he saw the slab of marble, he saw David. He said he simply chipped away all the parts that weren’t David to reveal what was already inside.
There’s No Better Metaphor
Everything you need to succeed is already inside you. Everything you are, and everything you ever will be, is already in there. Even if you don’t know it. Even if you don’t believe it.
Everything is already there, but it may be lying dormant. You are going to have to pick up the chisel and start chipping away to reveal your masterpiece.
