52 Greatness Quotes
If you want to achieve greatness, think first about service. Doesn't sound too sexy does it? But stick with me on this one, because I can tell you from experience (and these quotes below back me up!), that if you focus on what you can give to others, you'll get back that which you seek. Winston Churchill - a great man - once said 'The price of greatness is responsibility'. In other words, if you want to be great, it's your responsibility (or service) to others that you'll have to give in exchange. So if you want success and greatness, ask yourself 'How can I help', rather than 'What's in it for me'. Achieving greatness isn't about material possessions, or fame, job title, or putting yourself first. It's quite the opposite. Greatness is about service and taking ON responsibility (not being given it freely, actually earning greatness). I look at the most wealthy and, what I would call 'great', Entrepreneurs & Leaders as having been of service to hundreds of millions (or even billions) of people. Think on that when you consider these Quotes and Thoughts on Greatness below. Focus on upping your service to others. If you focus on giving more service (to more people), you'll be well on your road to success and being and feeling, truly, great! Enjoy.
Together, we can inspire galaxies of greatness for generations to come.
