Can We All Be Great?

I was completely inspired by the following video.

Take a minute (literally) and watch it.

This boy is me.  Almost every morning and certainly every Saturday morning when I'm running 6, 7, 8, 9 and soon to be another 13.1 miles.

Somewhere along the way, we decided that the word "Greatness" was to be equated with an elite status.  That in order to be great, you had to perform some extraordinary, super human task or feat that merited Olympic recognition.

The truth is that greatness is extremely personal.

It's different and triumphant for each soul that chooses it.

And when we decide that this moment we're going to put one foot in front of the other...we're going to push...we're going to try...we're going to be available, vulnerable, open, willing...we are great.

We are an example to others, particularly to our children, that greatness resides in our hearts.  We were born with it.  It is an innate gift that never goes away.  We simply have to choose to access it. 

It's a myth that greatness is for the chosen few.  Believe in yourself and know that beyond a shadow of a doubt, your greatness will shine...if you just let it.
