5 Places to Find Greatness

5 Places to Find Greatness

1. Look into the mirror…

There are over seven billion people on this planet, but only one of you. You are a mathematical enigma. Take a look at your fingerprint, the one-of-a-kind pattern is whispering to you, reminding you that there is nothing that comes close to you on this planet. The chances of your ancestors meeting, your grandparents meeting, your parents meeting, and your conception and birth are so miraculous they may as well be impossible. If you have never believed in miracles, you have forgotten that you are a miracle!

2. Look up to the stars…

You are destined for greatness. The reason why you crave after greatness is because it is the very DNA that encodes the story of your life. Look to the stars and realize that you have been called to rise up and live that story. Think about what kind of footprints you are going to leave behind in this life. What ripples are going to be sent out as a result of your existence? Have you ever come across an incredible shopping coupon, only to be disappointed that it has already expired? That kind of despair is nothing compared to coming to the end of your life and realizing that you lived nowhere near the ability that you are capable of. You are destined for greatness- do not let that inner greatness expire without you spending all of it.

3. Look down at your shoes…

Whose shoes are you wearing? In a world filled with a cacophony of voices and opinions, it is easy to walk the path that has been laid by someone else. There is nothing more uncomfortable than wearing somebody else’s clothing. Do not let your feet become blistered because you have tried to run someone else’s race. Find your running shoes that enable you to run the race for which you have been called.Find out the other 2 places to look on
