“You were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose, and to do it courageously.” Steve Maraboli
When you hear the word greatness, what is the first thing to come to your mind? Is it a success, money, commitment? Greatness is a combination of everything that lies within you, your potential and purpose you have on Earth. Greatness is stepping into your soul and find deep down true self.
A few years ago, when I started to take myself more seriously, I discovered that being great means continuously working on who I am and improving. One of the first things I began to practice was forgiveness, letting go of the small stuff and being grateful for any little accomplishment along the way.
We don’t need to be rich or have the best talent in the world to experience greatness in life. It is something that exists in each of us. Let’s take a look at 4 ways how you can find greatness within you and uncover your true potential.
1. Let go off your ego
Do you often choose to be right instead of stepping aside? We all do because each of has a different perspective on things. While you may be entirely convinced about the truth, wouldn’t be more beneficial to see the other person’s point of view? I don’t want to sound like Mrs. Smart Pants because as you may struggle, I do too. But by trying to understand the other side and listen to what they have to say, you will grow into a better person and create higher respect for yourself.
2. Step into the world of possibilities
The best way to achieve greatness is by exploring opportunities. Making a change and taking advantage of new things means using your courage to pursue it. Courage is crucial for finding your strength because it shows you everything you are truly capable of.
If there is anything you are being scared of, stop overthinking and take a chance. If you think about it, what is the worst thing that may happen? You may fail which means learning and more experience. Or you may actually succeed and move forward. Either way, don’t let the fear stops you.
3. Help others to uncover their greatness
We all need people around who encourage us and understand our journey. Unfortunately, not everyone finds those individuals right away. What if you can be that person who helps others feel better about themselves? Compliment people, encourage them in pursuing their dreams, let them become the person they want to be.
Sometimes a kind comment to the other person means everything to them at that moment and it may change the course of their life forever.
4. See the good things about yourself and make a commitment to become better
It is an unfortunate truth that many people have little or no confidence in themselves. They don’t believe in their ability; they criticize themselves without even knowing it. Self-talk is one of the most important things you need to master to lift your self-esteem and see the potential and the greatness you have. No one is born special or better than the other person.
Commit yourself to work towards your improvement every day. It doesn’t have to be anything spectacular, little things here and there is enough for you to build up your self-confidence and understand that you are in charge of your life.
