“Be not afraid of greatness; some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.” –William Shakespeare

Remind yourself daily in the ways that you achieve greatness. Greatness can be the extra steps you take to do something nice for someone that you don’t know, a message sent to a friend, or going out of your way to help someone in need. Greatness can be a kind word, compliment, or a smile. Greatness does not have to be some grand statement or act. Greatness can simply be a demonstration of being your best self in word, thought, or deed in each moment. It communicates to others and yourself that you are willing to be a better YOU. You have a purpose and that purpose is greatness- nothing more, nothing less.

“I can’t believe that God put us on this earth to be ordinary.” Lou Holtz
