You Can Watch Greatness or Choose To Be Great

We live in a world where there is greatness all around us. We get to watch our favorite TV programs with all of the great actors and actresses. Right now we are in the middle of the NBA Playoffs where we get to watch the greatest basketball players in the world battle it out on the court. We get to attend conferences and hear from some of brightest minds and the greatest speakers of our time.

We simply get to sit and watch greatness. We get to imagine what greatness could be and get a little glimpse of what it is. We get to watch greatness all around us and often times we are in awe because of it.

I was watching a little singing competition called American Idol where people who watched greatness for years decided to take a shot at becoming great. Twelve made it to the top, two made it to the finale and there was one great winner. What changed with these top 12? They chose to be great, they gave it a chance, they stepped in the ring, they got off the sidelines and they got in the game.

“Greatness is inside of you” is not some random quote or saying… it’s truth. You have potential for greatness, it’s time that you reach your God potential.

“Forget about likes and dislikes. They are of no consequence. Just do what must be done. This may not be happiness but it is greatness.” ~George Bernard Shaw

You Can Watch Greatness or Choose To Be Great!

  • Hi Scott!

    Thank you for this reminder. It’s complete truth, but somewhere along the way people forget that greatness is for them too. It’s not just for those in the spotlight. And…greatness isn’t synonymous with recognition. At least I don’t think so. I think greatness is about getting outside of yourself. It’s about giving what you have to offer to others. Whether that’s the gift of music and entertainment, or service and charity. It all counts. It’s all required for things to work together as they should. When you hold back that type of greatness – you cheat the world of experiencing the benefit of your purpose.

    So…go be great. 🙂

  • Thanks for this post Scott. Very encouraging!

  • Want a great way to go after greatness? Watch what everyone else is doing; then do the exact opposite. 9 times out of 10, doing the opposite of what everyone else is doing leads to true success!
