“When does one become great?” The obvious answer seems to be when the individual achieves a high level of performance, such as an award or a gold medal. Yet greatness is not achieved when the result is reached, but rather long before that when an individual chooses to do the things that he knows he needs to do. The results are not the attainment of greatness; the results are simply the confirmation of it. You become great long before the results show it. It happens in an instant, the moment you choose to do the things you need to do to be great and each moment that you continue to choose to do those things.
Each and every one of us has the ability to be great. Being great is a discipline to do the things you know you need to do even when-especially when-you don’t feel like it.
These 3 principles…..Accountability, Commitment, and Greatness in the Moment-form the foundation of personal and professional success.
