Greatness

Sometimes, I find myself thinking.
Again.. About everything.
I am aware of the people around me.. Driven to excel in their excellence.. Often leaving me wanting to excel in my own greatness.

Greatness (noun) – the quality of being great; eminence or distinction.

The quality of being great. Not just being great. It involves quality.. Also a noun.. “the standard of something as measured against other things of a similar kind; the degree of excellence of something.”

I believe that I can excel.. That if I keep driving forward in my pursuit of excellence, I may also become great.
I post a lot about goals, self-belief and ambition. When I say things out loud, they become real. They make me aware of how much hard work is required to get me to where it is in life that I want to be. What it will take to get me there requires perseverance, patience and a willingness to fall flat on my face but have the courage to stand up again. There is so much talent and purpose in the graveyard. People who died before becoming great. I don’t want to be buried with my greatness within me.. It bubbles within me.. Thoughts.. Plans.. Ideas.. At the brim trying to force its way out..

I’m on this journey to greatness. Failures happen.. But it’s effectively how I choose to deal with the failures that will help me in becoming the greatest person that I know I can be.
