A few days ago I posted asking where is the greatness. I was discussing this with a friend of mine the other night. I could post just the obvious and well expected answer to this; however, I’d like to expand on it. The greatness is within us (obviously). We can do something with this on our own but it would be extremely difficult. Without the support of others and motivation from whatever source you pull, we wouldn’t do much with talents have. I’d like to restate the fact that our parents play a huge factor in what we do with the abilities we have.They can help you cultivate them or ignore them and hope that one day you will find on your own what could have been brought out. I would hope that cultivating would be the result of a known talent but unfortunately this is not always the case. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in ourselves that we forget there are other people on this small planet of ours. We sometimes forget that there are people in the same vicinity of us. I’m not trying to go off on a rant about this just wanted to point out the obvious that we are sometimes very involved in ourselves.
So in essence the greatness is everywhere. It comes from those we surround ourselves with, the actions we take everyday, and the will power within. Great athletes don’t be come who they are without some kind of motivation and will power. When it gets tough or hard, in any facet of life, we have to pull from all aspects of our life to keep going. There are different things that we use for to drive us, push us forward. This doesn’t go for just sports though. It is what we should do when any task becomes difficult. We all have things that we are good or possibly great at. Find the thing in life that you love or would like to do and just do it.
