Find your Greatness

The Olympics – did you watch?  The Olympics is an amazing event.  Athletes come from all over the world to compete against each other.  Some achieve greatness and others don’t, however the greatness, the notoriety is fleeting.  Most of the time, we can’t remember who won what after it’s over unless they won multiple medals.  The commercials that play during the Olympics are interesting….Find your greatness!  The Olympics and the commercials got me thinking.  How many of us believe we have found our greatness, no, not medals or awards but our inner greatness? The greatness that comes when we have done a good job, or helped someone in need or been kind in our families, our offices, our business.  How many of us have done something for someone else just because?  You remember that feeling!

What is greatness?  It can be achievement, awards, money, prestige…I could go on and on.  But are those lasting?  Greatness comes from within, it is what we remember, what we did.  Maya Angelou said, “They’ll forget what you did, they’ll forget what you said, but they’ll never forget how you made them feel”.  That is greatness…and may we all find it in our own way.  Then we will be our own Olympian!

Until Next Monday…
