The price of greatness
By Odaderia Favour A
The quest for greatness has lead to too many harms and has equally made a huge positive change to humanity, therefore your definition of greatness is what will determine what it does to your world. We all claim to be seeking and searching for greatness but, are we really ready to pay the price?
What really make you to think that you are ready for greatness? Many of us believe we are so set for greatness but our vision are truncated by our beliefs. How can you be great when you doubt yourself? How can you be great when your mind is saying there are much problems in being a great personality? Greatness is not just about a wish or a desire, it is more than seeking for it, it travels beyond the walls of taste and rootless faith. Greatness is first a mind-set and then a plan of action executed. If you desire it, go for it, that's the instruction of greatness, it pushes you, it makes you feel uncomfortable in you present state, greatness is a continuous hunger to be fulfilled. What can you do to be great or are you satisfied with the way you are?
I have this story for you. Some time ago a team of graduate where put to test to know how determined they are to make changes in humanity as they all claimed, they where taken to a city full of honey and all the good things they will ever desire to fulfil any level of gratification
their task find out what make great people great. They are set out for same purpose according to their different ground of understanding and zeal. One of them visited a company and asked to see the manager for an interview aiming to his reason of being in the city, several times he tried to see the manager but all his effort where futile. He tried another and when he managed to see the fugleman he was attended to brusquely he left with his waggish humour but because he was not satisfied he chooses to revisit again, this time more prepared than the former, he appeared frisky before the witty fugleman and successfully pry into his secret of greatness by asking a single question, sir can you teach me how to be great in one sentence? Here is the answer the young man received "be focus on your goals, believe in yourself, create your strategies and kill the fear to risk". To create new roads you must think different, believe in yourself and strike beyond the reality of men. Great risk takers who has great goals and are enthusiastic, focused, persistent and are calculative usually attain no less result than greatness. The avid character left still finding a better way to explain the managers statement to himself meanwhile we should not dispatch the fact that he was not the only one involved in this journey. The time is far and no longer our friend the others tried they face different challenges and they have retire to continue maybe they think it is not really necessary and they are selling their time so cheap for a no just cause. Finally they where all instructed to the goods house to get a document which will be used to qualify them, getting there they find out that the building is so ancient and no one was living in it moreover it was written "dangerous zone" the others easily concluded that this was not the place and peradventure it appears to be they won't go in. Would you take the risk if you where to be among these guys? We say we love our lives too much to take risk of any kind but we exist to make things be and this process involves risk so it will be wise to think for yourself if you really want to make a thing exist. Determination over your goals and certainty of purpose always yield prosperous fruits. As others left the young bold man approach the building as he was getting close he heard a voice, this place is not meant for your type of person, please go back. In great melee he remain stagnant on his foot, he ingress after a while and he heard another voice hash than the previous, you can get anything here, you have to go back. The young mind at this time turned but as he was about to leave the gate this question dropped in his mind; did you remember why you came here? Another sense of thought came into him, i should have known why that person is asking me to go back, i think it should be sensible i make known my reasons of being here maybe they could let me in, so he went in with this acumen. As he step close the voice came up again this time he accost the voice saying " i am here for a reason may i please see you to explain?" as it is said ask and you shall be given seek an ye shall find, knock and it shall be open onto you, immediately three persons came from the weird house and approach him. Why are you here they asked? He told them what brought him there and as he was about to continue of other stories about the rest of them and of what has been happening they told him not to worry that they already know. When they went into the haphazardly appearing house behold it was heaven inside, you can't imagine the whole test was to get capable minds who will replace notable positions in a first class company and it happens that he was the only one who passed the test. Now if i may ask, do the others not mind being in those positions that needed replacement? There are always space for the persons who wants to climb high, there is always greatness for those who really desires to be great, no matter who and what you are your state of mind, your focus, your determination, your acuity and definiteness of purpose is what you need to be counted great. The world does not smile at any body, it's in you power to make it smile for you. Take the risk if you believe in you idea and in yourself.
To be great we must be focused, we must remain determined, we must be certain and trust our goals. Our goals must be worthy to give our all to, if you are never ready to take a huge risk for what you believe you have never find a reason to live. When you travel beyond, it's that goal you make a reality and your unswaying beliefs that will stand in history.
