Your Greatness

….all depends on the challenges that you’ve experienced in your life.  You cannot know how great you can be unless you work through some challenges.

We all experience challenges.  Those that work through it can know how great they are.  Talk to great people.  They’ll point to the challenges that have gotten them there.  The truly great people – will probably even deny that they are great – because the challenges were great – and that’s what made them great.

If you want to be great – challenge yourself.  People will let you know.

If you think you’re great – you’re not.
