You are Born For Greatness!
"Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us". Wilma Rudolph
Do you feel that you are destined for greatness? Sure yes you are!
We're all born for greatness, we all have the capacity to become great. We're all born to be explorers, leaders and legends. We're all born to make our mark and change the world. We're born to forge our own paths, find our own adventures and to make a name for ourselves. We're born to cross oceans, build bridges and change lives. We’re all equipped with our own special gifts and talents. None of us was born to live in a box but many of us lose our path along the way. We stop dreaming and start being realistic.
People who become great break past the thinking society tries to place on them. They follow their dreams, accomplish something great, and leave their observers in a state of envy and awe.
“Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.” William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night
You must be humble and open minded to be truly great. You weren’t put on this earth to be small. You should be willing to listen to your senses, what the Spirit of God is telling you to do. Make a decision to follow your own unique path.
Greatness is maximizing your potential for the glory of God and the good of others. Not only does God want you to be great in this world and in His Kingdom, He has destined you for it.
“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” Thomas Edison
True greatness involves analyzing your gifts, talents, and skills in relation to God’s name and glory, and then maximizing them in an effort to expand your impact on others. God’s agenda is to advance His kingdom down the field of life, and to do so, He is looking for men and women who will rise to the occasion in their bid for greatness. You were made for this type of greatness.
On the path to greatness you will have to remove failure from your dictionary. You will definitely make mistakes along the way but don’t you ever give up. Things will not always go your way but treat your failures like an experiment which requires you to try again.
“Success isn't always about greatness. It's about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come”. Dwayne Johnson
In Genesis 12:2, God said directly to Abraham, “I will bless you and make your name great.” In 2 Samuel 7:9, God echoes these thoughts to David when He said, “I have been with you wherever you have gone and have cut off all your enemies from before you; and I will make you a great name, like the names of the great men who are on the earth.”
The above verse shows how much God wants us to be great, its His will that you and I will prosper and become great!
Jesus said in John 14:12, “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these will he do.”
