There is greatness in all of us.

Problem is, if we don’t get recognition from others about our greatness, we assume the greatness is not so great, instead of realising that they’re too distracted to notice.

That’s when we give up on that greatness and instead embrace something trivial that will attract their attention.

Then, when we get their attention, we assume we’ve achieved something great when in fact we just did something that is momentarily popular.

And that’s how we fail to change the world.

We grow old feeling like we were cheated out of greatness, but forget that we traded our greatness for acceptance and validation.

Be greater than that. You’ve got it in you to do it.
