Greatness It's just something we made up. Somehow we've come to believe that greatness is a gift. Reserved for a chosen few. For prodigies. For superstars. And the rest of us can only stand by watching. You can forget that! Greatness is not some rare DNA strand. It's not some precious thing. Greatness is not more unique to us than breathing. We're all capable of it. All of us.
Some people are told they were born with greatness
Some people tell themselves
If greatness doesn't come knocking at your door
Maybe you should go knock on its door
Sometimes greatness is about overcoming insurmountable adversity Sometimes is just fun
Greatness isn't always measured in tenths of a point
It's a bit bigger than that
Sometimes greatness is something you plan
But most of the time is just something you try
Is easy to think greatness is something you see on TV
Unless of course, greatness is watching TV
Greatness is a scary thing
Until it isn't
If we think greatness is supposed to look a certain way, act a certain way and play a certain way We certainly need to rethink some things
Is it speed or endurance? Does it happen in two hours or for or six? Is it finishing strong? Or barely finishing? Yes
Is greatness worth fighting for? What do you think?
If we face our fears it means we're pointed in the right direction.
Even if that direction is upside down
It's not the biggest stadium in the world. Not the biggest players either. But the pursuit of greatness is kinda big enough, isn't it? You don't need an official court, an official net or official uniforms to be officially great.
Greatness speaks for itself.
Once it learns to talk.
Greatness needs a lot of things
But it doesn't need an audience
Some measure greatness in precious metals Like iron Greatness is not born It's made If you try to tell the guy with the sword he's not great because he's not famous Be my guest There are no grand celebrations here No speeches No bright lights But there are great athletes
Somehow we've come to believe that greatness is reserved for the chosen few. For the superstars. The truth is Greatness is for all of us. This is not about lowering expectations. It's about raising them for every last one of us. Because greatness is not in one special place. And it's not in one special person. Greatness is wherever somebody is trying to find it.
