Reaching for Greatness

Reaching for Greatness

 

For every mistake you make, you learn from it. For every word you speak, you must own it. For every action you take, you progress forward. For every thought that you have, bad or good, you can bring to life. Always be reaching for greatness.

Be the type of person to make an impact on people. Be the type of person who develops and grows on a daily basis. Be the type of person who persists consistently, even when there are struggles and obstacles that you experience in life. Be the type of person who becomes more than you thought you could ever become. Be the type of person who is not afraid to be original. And always be reaching for greatness.

Have the heart of a lion. Don’t be afraid to express how you feel, but choose your words wisely. Have the heart of a soulful person. Allow courage, inner peace, and strength in. Overcome any negativity and bad vibes you may have within yourself. Have the heart of a loving person, but don’t allow others to walk over you. Stand your ground with your beliefs, but don’t be opinionated. You are allowed to be stubborn, but don’t be crude. If you feel you are, then apologize for it. Know when life has you in a corner, there is something good that will happen to you soon. Know everything happens for a reason. Always be reaching for greatness.

Friends will come, and friends will go. The friends who remain are your friends for life. In the good times and in the worst of times. They will laugh with you, cry with you, and love you for you. There will be times when they make you mad. If they apologize to you, you have a friend for life. If they don’t, time will tell what type of friendship you will have. Friendship is a two-way relationship; it can never be about one person all the time. But know when one friendship fails, there is always another one around the corner which will turn out great. So, always be reaching for greatness.

Greatness is the best form of flattery. Greatness is the best form of kindness. Greatness is the best form of appreciation. Greatness is the best form of reaction to life. Are you flattered with the company you keep? Is the company you keep kind to you? Do you appreciate your company you keep? Do you react to life with greatness? With humbleness? With appreciation? How you react to life is how you control your thoughts, mind, and mindset. If you are not reaching for greatness at this very moment, know you have 24 hours in the day to improve your thoughts, mind, and mindset. Learn to always be reaching for greatness.

Embrace the greatness within you. There is greatness in everyone, no matter the flaws that are within them. Your flaws can turn into greatness. You just have to learn how to work on and improve your flaws, but first you must accept them. This includes your inner demons, your past life, your bad habits. Use the 24 hours in the day to make yourself great and make those inner demons, your past life, your bad habits go away. Release any and all bad thoughts that keep you from reaching greatness, for there is greatness within you. Never allow your negativity, your flaws, your inner demons, or your friends, to take away the greatness inside you. Embrace life and always be reaching for greatness.
