Happy Monday!!! How was your weekend? I wanted to start off this week by talking about greatness. Over the past few weeks we have seen some of the most talented athletes perform some amazing feats. From death defying dives off a 10 metre platform to the grace and beauty of gymnastics, and the hardcore endurance of the marathon runners. One thing all these participants have in common is greatness.
But they didn’t get to this point overnight. It takes years of hard work, and dedication to make it to the top! And along the way there are many triumphs and tribulations. If there is one common theme among the athletes I’ve heard from it’s this: each one had a less than ideal lead up to the game, yet there determination and self belief never wavered. It was mind over matter.
But greatness isn’t reserved for a select few. There is greatness in each of us. It is just a matter of finding out your strengths and working towards a goal.
No dream or aspiration is too large to obtain if you are willing to work hard to achieve it. Just like the humble lump of coal can become a dazzling diamond, you too have the potential to be something great!
Here’s to a week full of greatness.
