How To Achieve Greatness

There always seem to be discussions surrounding the word greatness and how one can become great. Questions like: How does an organization become great? How do athletes become great? How do you achieve greatness? The simple answer is: Hard work, pushing through, breaking through, trusting in others and believing in yourself.

Greatness is always possible, it begins with your inner dialogue, your thought process and is followed up by your actions.

Most people miss greatness because it’s camouflaged in hard-work, effort and a desire to be great.

Do you want to be great? Go ahead, you have permission. Do you want your children to be great? Tell them to go ahead, they have permission. Do you want those round you to be great? Tell them to go ahead, they have permission. The opportunity for greatness doesn’t knock, it comes to those who build the door and beat it down.

Once you realize that the same spirit that raised “The Greatest” from the dead resides in you… you will accept your ticket to achieve greatness.

Greatness is waiting on you… What are you waiting on?

    Itbis necessary to add that Christ told His disciples that the greatest among them would be a servant and used Him giving himself as a ransom for many as an example of the type of service. Definitely believe that all of us have permission to be great, and it is hard work, but selflessness has to be the main ingredient if we are using the word in its truest form. I’m sure you’d agree, just though I’d add my $.02.

      Totally agree that servant leadership and being a servant is key…  Pursuing greatness and being the greatest are really close cousins. Thx for your $.02  🙂

  • Thanks for this, very eloquently put, I really needed to hear this right now.

    • ScottWilliams

      glad it spoke to you at this moment… thx for the comment

  • It really does begin inside. It always has. We only see the greatness after all the hard work has taken place and it started within. Thanks Scott.

    • ScottWilliams

      totally & not all of the sweat, tears & failures that went into getting there

  • “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be
    transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test
    and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

    His will to be great through you.

    It says it right there – the first step – is to renew your mind.

    Love this, Scott. Thanks!
