Word of the Week: Greatness!

 
 
 
"The greatness comes not when things go always good for you. But the greatness comes when you're really tested, when you take some knocks, some disappointments, when sadness comes. Because only if you've been in the deepest valley can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain."
 
-Richard Milhouse Nixon
 
 

"Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness."

-Oprah Winfrey
 
 
"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but really great people make you feel that you too, can become great.
 
-Mark Twain

I can't think of anything that inspires me more to consider life's endless possibilities and opportunities, than gazing at a beautiful sky.
 
 Greatness.
 
What an encompassing and beautiful ideal to aspire too.
 
We all have the potential to be great. Even if it applies to only one talent, skill, gift... isn't it worth aspiring too? 
 
I hope these quotes will inspire you to explore and discover your own path to greatness, this week and every week.

We should all strive for greatness. And yes, don't let other people get you down or think you can't be great. Love this post and the photo is perfect.

Hi Brenda, I'm glad you like this post. I like how the light is just peeking out at the top of the photo, to me that says: greatness.

Hi Tammie, It was a special evening for sky watching that night. We don't get many sunsets like that!

Hi Joe, So true. Don't let anyone rain on your parade, I agree.

Hi Lorraine, Thanks friend. I'm in awe of nature's beauty too.

Happy Week, G :<)
