The 3 Simple Steps to Greatness

Great things they say start small. Greatness is the destiny of every man. God has given us the potential to be great. Everybody that can pay the prize of greatness will definitely be great. I don't think there is any right thinking man that will choose not to be great if given the choice to make. 

It's important to understand the mystery of greatness. This is because it is not everyone that wished to be great that ended up great. In as much as we believe with Ecclesiastes 9:11 which says, "The race is not for the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor riches to men of understanding, nor favour to men of skill; but time and chance happen to them all". What exactly am I pointing out here? Here is it, we acknowledge the place of opportunity in the making of greatness. Opportunity has much to do with greatness. People who by circumstances became more opportuned than others has better chances of attaining greatness.

But outside that, people can work themselves to greatness. Taking a number of actions towards the attainment of greatness can facilitate its reality. I have come to reveal to you what I call three steps to greatness. I consider these steps able to launch someone into the life of greatness. And what are the steps? I go ahead to discuss them with you.

1. Desire It: The first step towards achieving greatness is to desire it. It is the desire that births the zeal. You will have to desire greatness to be great. You don't get what you don't ask for. Desire is the mother of hard word. When you desire something you work hard to have it. That is why you will need to desire greatness.

2. Imagine It: Another step that need to be taken in order to attain greatness is to imagine it. Imagination is the act of creating imagery of our expectations. When you create the image of greatness, it draws you near to greatness. Therefore, you need to constantly imagine to be great. You can never receive anything that your mind cannot picture. It is called the power of attraction. That is, attracting the desires of your heart through imagination. See yourself a great man already. Visualise how you gonna look in your great status. Imagination helps you to live in your future, thereby propelling action from within to step into it. 

3. Pursue It: Finally, you need to match up the above two actions with work. If you desire and imagine, you then need to pursue greatness to bring it to reality. This calls for hard work. You work yourself into greatness. You cannot sit back and expect miracle to happen. You must make a conscious effect to be great. Whatever you desire to achieve has been achieved by people in the past. You need to learn how they did it and apply the same in your case. Do you wanna be a Teacher? Follow the approved way of becoming a Teacher in your society. Do you want to be a banker, do the same as a Teacher. Is it a preacher, learn from outstanding preachers. Pursue your dreams to attain greatness. 

Note: Everybody is given the potential to be great, but not everyone can be great. Only the few that apply extra skills end up great.
