Greatness Is Always A Matter Of Choice

greatWe 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 MLB World Series where we get to watch the greatest baseball players in the world battle it out on the field. 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

Greatness is never a matter of chance, Greatness is always a matter of choice. 

  • Great stuff, Scott! Idol is a great example. I love the show because of that. I love hearing the stories of those who almost didn’t go for the audition. That one act of faith or courage or whatever led them to success.

    Minor nit, though. What we are seeing in the series this year is two great teams. What has made the Royals so fun to watch in the postseason, in my opinion, is that they are a team of solid – but not superstar – baseball players. They win as a team.

    It might not always be clear where our greatness can be found. We must keep trying new things to discover or hidden talents.
