I’m going to share something that I’ve noticed. so yeah, we have motivational speakers telling us about their stories and motivating us to become better than them. They tell us about great people and how they made it and how we can become better than them.
Then they give us action words, “you can be great if you decide to be, apart from hardwork, its very easy to be great”. But, they don’t tell us HOW to be great, they think they do but they really don’t. So after listening to a motivational speech, we kind of wonder; alright, what’s next ? So what is the how?
Truth is that everybody has that little greatness stored inside them, the inborn potential to be great. You just have to develop it. There’s obviously something you can do better than others or just something you like to do, you can write, you can sing, or maybe you can play ball. I’m telling you, I know it is difficult but still do it. Everyone has that great plan think of it, it’ll come to you. Here’s some advice, always focus on the future, don’t let the past or the present keep you fom getting there. when you’ve made it, every other thing becomes history.
But then, not everybody would be that great because a lot of people fail to act on their great plans. People die with their greatness still inside them, people live their lives recklessly with their potential for greatness untapped inside of them. Don’t be like them.
Why am I bothering you with all this? I have a great idea, I want to write a book on the HOW to become great, get it published and use the money to help the less privileged but guess what, I’m doing nothing about it because I’m not thinking about the end but the beginning and the now. And when one is stuck in that kind of thinking, its really tough to start. I’ve noticed that what inspires great people is where they’ll like to be in the future and not where they are at the moment.
So this is what I’m going to do for you, I’m letting my idea out in the hope that an inspiring writer would pick up my idea and work on it. I can’t waste precious time dilly-dallying and let that great idea fade away in my mind. I don’t really mind so long as you give me credit.
Pick a notepad and start writing, any ideas you get that might inspire others. Be sure to make it practical. You might get frustrated on the way, get tired, but remember that every great person has had such experience. You might think you don’t have the resources, but my dear, your talent alone is your one way ticket to greatsylvania.
You can even think bigger than me and improve upon this idea.
Just focus and remember what the future would offer you.
