Be not afraid of Greatness. Some are born great, Some achieve greatness, and Others have greatness thrust upon them.
~William Shakespeare, Twelfth night.
I think this quote embodies our day and age. This time in history. As teens, young adults and adults, we learn to be afraid of greatness. We learn to be afraid of pride and happiness. We learn to be afraid of power itself. But none of these things are bad. Being great isn’t bad, having power isn’t bad, having pride and happiness isn’t bad. It’s what we do with those things, our motives. Our selfishness and abusive actions are the evil. We need to stop allowing others opinions to sway our decisions. If we are born great, we need to use it to help others. If we achieve greatness, we need to use it to help others. If we have greatness thrust upon us, we need to use it to help others. It all starts with the heart, the mind and the will. When those things are pure and are passionate about helping, creating and serving. A golden age will ensue. A time and age, a history of seeking the great, the pure, the right and the Holy. To give greatness, to walk with greatness, to serve greatness. Titles and names are nothing. It’s who we are and who we want to become, that is everything.
Thank you for stopping by have a wonderful day!
Until we meet again,

‘Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What’s Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man.
O, be some other name!
What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call’d,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
And for that name which is no part of thee Take all myself.
~ William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet.
