Deep down in the recesses of our spirit lies our essence. Our essence is what moves us to achieve greatness.
You can be and do anything you want in life as long as you rely on your essence. Your essence is like the engine that propels a spaceship through space.
The only difference between your essence and a spaceship is you never run out of fuel. In other words, you have unlimited gifts, talents, skills, and opportunity to achieve greatness.
The origin of all greatness begins on the inside of you. Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, said it best, “We are what we think all the day long. "
Believe it and you shall achieve greatness. Only you can stop yourself from reaching the pinnacle of your calling. We all have different callings and no one can take it away from us.
I appreciate our humanity because it proves none of us is perfect, but we are just as good. It reminds me of Michael Jordan not being selected to his high school basketball team.
Perhaps at the time, Michael Jordan's coach simply did not have the ability to judge talent or maybe he was simply just being human.
Michael Jordan not only proved his high school coach wrong, he bought into his own essence. Jordans essence informed him if he did not want to be overlooked as a basketball player in the future, he had better secure his own greatness and not leave it up to someone else.
We can all learn from Michael's life experience. Discover your essence and achieve greatness, I will see you at the top of success mountain.
