Summary:

Ceiling = the maximum achievable level

Believe in the parallel universe theory.

Body:

Everyone has a different ceiling to their potential as a human being. The closer you are to your own ceiling in all aspects of life the better your life will be.

Yes, genetics matter in terms of dominance. "Alpha" is much more mental than it is physical however. The journey of getting as close to your ceiling as possible builds the alpha mindset. Whether we're talking in the gym, at work, or school, the grind and willpower it takes to keep progressing at the edge of the bell curve needs to be strong.

Lesson Learned:

A guy who is naturally gifted but is only at 50% of his personal 'ceiling' is less alpha than the genetic scrub who grinded to be at 80% of his own ceiling.
