This post carries a tone more somber than that of those I normally write. It contains less of the “rah, rah!” and “You can do it!” factor.
It comes only with a simple reminder. A baseline for all the rest of life.
When I talked of excellence, I most often spoke from the standpoint of what one does rather than who one is, but I missed the most important thing. It was there–underneath all the rest–but I failed to highlight the truth.
Greatness is not what you do or even how you do it. True greatness lies at the core of who you are.
Go within. Find out what is there, and passion will guide you the rest of the way. Without passion, excellence alone is a cheap substitute.
Love absolutely. Love undeniably. Love without reservation. That is greatness. The closer you get to love, the greater your life will be whether people “get it” or not.
We cannot all do great things,
but we can do small things with great love.
