Create Your Path To Greatness

You desire to be great and, let me tell you...you have greatness in you that fulfills your life purpose. People around you need your greatness. But how do you make it happen? There is a path to greatness that has been marked out by great men and women throughout history and many are on its path now. You can join in the quest for greatness—find out what greatness is, what it means, what it looks like, and how to make it a significant part of your life.


I have been studying personal development for over 20 years by examining the lives of great men and women. And, there is always an idea in my mind about how to achieve greatness.

Shakespeare said:

"Some are born with greatness, some achieve greatness and others have greatness thrust upon them."

Greatness Is Not Accidental

As I have studied personal development through the lives of great men and women, I have discovered that greatness does not happen by accident or chance. They are preparing themselves so, when the the opportunity arrives, they are ready. There is a book on this topic I highly recommend called The Science of Being Great by Wallace D. Wattles.

What is greatness? Maybe we think it's great wealth, great financial success or success in business. But greatness can be found in small —yet important—things.

Here are some important ways to consider cultivating greatness:

  • Greatness in listening.
  • Greatness in caring.
  • Greatness in observing. {Some of the best authors in the world were great observers.}
  • Greatness in love.
  • Greatness in honesty.
  • Greatness in integrity.

We have to find ways to be great in our current roles in life:

  • If you are a spouse, be a great one.
  • If you are a parent, be a great parent.
  • If you are a teacher, be a great teacher.
  • If you are a leader, be a great leader.

Whatever you are doing, take the time to study it and be really great at it. Whatever you are going to do, choose it and seek to become great at it. Seek to be great at making a positive difference in the world!

Keep climbing on this path of greatness to become your very best self!
