The Greatness in Life You Want, Wants You. Believe It!

You can have the greatness you want in your “do over” if you will simply give up the belief that you can’t have it. Without a firm belief in one’s self, achieving greatness will not only prove difficult, but likely impossible. You must be your biggest advocate. You must believe in yourself deeply. History is replete with people that believed deeply in their own abilities and what they could accomplish, and because they believed they could… they did.

History is replete with people that believed deeply in their own abilities and what they could accomplish, and because they believed they could… they did.

If you are to reach your goals, a great deal of self-motivation will be required. There isn’t a support network in existence that will propel you to greatness. True greatness must be self-actualized. It must come from within.

A disregard for reality plays an important role in achieving greatness. We are surrounded by everyday ideas, services, products and inventions that were once deemed unrealistic and foolish. Without irrational and unrealistic thinking, electricity, airplanes and computers would still be waiting to be invented.

All of this “belief in yourself” talk and “unrealistic” thinking might sound like, “Yeah, whatever…,” but after your eleventh or twelfth day without a shower or working toilet, you might take this subject more seriously.

We would still be living in caves without history’s risk takers. It’s those who bucked the system and ignored “conventional wisdom” we have to thank for the countless luxuries we take for granted on a daily basis.

The road to greatness, however, isn’t as smooth as hindsight may sometimes lead us to believe. Frequently, in fact a majority of the time, big thinkers and inventors were laughed at and ridiculed as their first few ideas and experiments failed. History shows us that powerful thinkers with progressive ideas have long been shunned, or even hated and persecuted by the world at large. Nonetheless, these remarkable visionaries stayed true to their vision and did not allow the sea of naysayers to detract them from their goals and plans.

It is vitally important to make a choice and work towards the fulfillment of that decision. Resist allowing yourself to be guided by outside forces and elements. Taking a path dictated by others relinquishes your control of your destiny. Believe that a different path awaits you. The greatness in life you want, wants you. You can go get it or you can make excuses, but you can’t do both. Make a decision to go after it, believe in that decision, and the world will begin to conspire in your favor… and greatness in your “do over” will be yours.
