That Elusive Greatness
Why do many live in GREATNESS (movie stars, billionaires, celebrities, successful business people), while others stagnate through life in struggle, hardship and limitation?
Truth is that you are already great. There is only one problem. WHO YOU REALLY ARE - your non-physical and authentic self- is already great but you don’t realize this if you’re experiencing lack and struggle.
A metaphor to describe this is the seed of an oak tree. Imagine the seed; or acorn, everything that defines the oak tree is already in the acorn. Unlike people, the acorn doesn’t live under the illusion that it has to be something else or strive toward an accomplishment or goal that isn’t within its very own nature.
In other words, the greatness that is inherent within you is your soul, your authentic non-physical self that is stripped from all the excuses, and conditions. These conditions, excuses, and contingencies have created your LIMITED SELF.
So if everyone’s born GREAT, why is there struggle? Why do we tend to worry and fear the word ‘failure’ and all its socially imposed meanings? Why do relationships and businesses fail?
The answer is you’re as great as you ALLOW yourself to be.
Most of us don’t ALLOW greatness. Instead were quick to form conditions that place huge limits on what we can be, have, or do before we have even begun.
The only limits in life are the ones you place on yourself. So put yourself up for a challenge, put aside your limits for some time and ALLOW yourself to be great for the next few months…then see what happens.
