Every shiny object will catch your attention, when you don’t have a singleness of purpose.
Distraction is simply when every other things divert your attention away from the call of Greatness.
In my 37 years alive I’m yet to see a person who is distracted and great at the same time.
Greatness should be of greater attraction to you than any distraction. Follow Greatness, eschew distraction and you’d be great.
Tell yourself ” I won’t be distracted by any social media sites until I become great, and you’d become great. It is as simple as that.
Excuses Are Dangerous Enemies Of Greatness
Excuses are house occupants with shallowness, emptiness and lack of Greatness.
A lot of people make lots of excuses about a lot of things. You hear excuses such as ‘I don’t have money’ ‘I don’t have time’ ‘ I don’t qualify’ and a whole lot of excuses about why they can’t attain greatness.
You will never be great until you stop making excuses.
Imagine if your heart gives you an excuse not to come to work today.

The vital organs you need for answering the call of Greatness are ever present in you. But excuses excuses are trying to stop you from becoming great.

Fear Is An Enemy That Secretly Wish To Cripple Greatness In You.
Fear is the most common but mightily dangerous enemy of Greatness in your life.
Fear seeks to cripple your movement towards Greatness. Fear seeks to keep you still and keep you immobile, when you ought to be mobile on your way to Greatness.
Now how will you feel if your legs decide ‘ I fear to take a walk today, let me just act vegetable and rest for 15 years’.
What will happen if your hands simply say ‘ I fear to do anything today and tomorrow’.
If fear is not stopping your hands and legs from serving you, why is fear stopping you from Greatness.
Fear is powerful because we feed it with more reasons to exist in us.
You meet someone who says’ I fear to have an online business because I don’t think there’s any more room in it for me, I might fail in an online business’.
You hear someone say ‘ I fear to apply for that job , because I’m not qualified’. ‘ I fear to speak in public because I’d make mistakes’.
There are a lot of fear factors in the society, that’s why the society is producing fewer and fewer great men everyday.
Close-mindedness Is A Destroyer Of Greatness In Your Life
Your development in any area of life gets diminished when you’re close-minded. And you can never be great with close-mindedness.
You must be devoted to learning for the rest of your life otherwise you’d never be great.
Thomas Edison learned a thousand times better than other inventors of his time, before he became the first to invent a light bulb.
Greatness only pop up on your mind when you’re open minded towards learning.
You give up easily on learning when you’re close-minded, and Greatness will avoid you if you do not like to learn.
Your mind is meant for expansion, not restrictions. Your mind is meant for exploration, not conformation.
You can only receive the greatness that your imagination makes you experience.
And a close-minded person is simply someone who has stopped seeking the beauty embedded within his or her imagination.
How Greatness Begins In Your Life Today
Greatness has always been in your life and it will always be there whether you see it , believe it or not.
You can choose to live alone with so much Greatness inside you, until you die with so much unreleased Greatness. Or you can choose to express the Greatness inside you to the world at any given time of your life starting from now.
Is Greatness A Choice Or Destiny?
How do you become great overnight? You become great overnight by just being yourself.
Even Adolf Hitler the evil dictator was great in his own estimation of himself, because he acted himself until his death. It is only death that can put asunder between you and the Greatness within you.
Greatness has no color,creed or sentiments , all it does is express itself in whosoever chooses to manifest it.
A bad person who display great faith in his Evil beliefs, will become greater in his ways compared to a million good people who are scared to exhibit faith in their potentials for Greatness.
Is that not the reason why you see a bold evil person as a leader in any society filled with great people who are afraid of being great. Nigeria of today is a vivid example of this graphic detail.
Why are there so many poor people in a Nation as great as Nigeria? The default personality of an average Nigerian is good. We are resilient. A resilient attitude is good. We are patient. Patience is a virtue. But we are also fearful despite our strong nature. Remember I said fear is an enemy of Greatness.
So many Nigerians are poor not because they are not hard-working, but because they choose to give in to the enemies of Greatness. However you can become great overnight.

Embrace Your Mistakes But Still Choose To Move On Towards Your Greatness
Thomas Edison made many mistakes.He made 999 mistakes on his way towards inventing light bulb.
Mistakes are assets not crutches , it all depends on how you view it. Thomas said he learned 999 ways on how not to make light bulb. Now that’s an attitude of Greatness.
Whatever you choose to do after a mistake matters more than the mistake itself.
A toddler does not simply stop trying to walk after he falls. Without reading a manual on how to walk , the toddler learn to pick himself up and try again and again until he walks one day. He does not count how many times he fall, all he focuses on is trying to walk.
I have fallen a thousand times in all areas of my life, matter of fact I sometimes envisage falling whenever I want to embark on a new project. The only thing is that I don’t allow the fear of mistakes to stop me.I embark on the project despite the potentials of making mistakes.
My life like your life is a project. ” I won’t abandon this project until I become great.” That’s what I say about my life. This is why I cry after a fall , but wipe my tears and start again.Adopt an attitude like this and you’d be great. Or at least people will know you died trying to become great.

Love What You Do On Your Path To Greatness
If you can write, love it. If you can sing love your voice. You do not need to beg people to love what you can do before you choose to love it.
Thomas Edison never begged people to love his dream of trying to invent incandescent bulb.
He simply loved his dream through the mockery from Media, doubts of fellow inventors, families,friends. He loved his dreams throughout the 999 mistakes he made trying to invent light bulb.
When you so love what you can do that you’re willing to go through pain for it, one day the world will see the Greatness you bring forth just as clear as the light bulb Thomas brought forth.
Share Your Dreams Of Greatness Everywhere And Every-time
You’d never be great without boldness.
If you believe so much in that small business, then why is it not online yet. Your business is not online, not because it is small, but because you do not believe it can be great.
You’ve never published an article, not because you cannot write, but because you do not believe your write up is great.
You have not spread awareness on what you know how to do, because you do not believe in yourself. No other excuse would have mattered to you if you believed in your Greatness.
You will only become great when you start voicing out what you know how to do , no matter what people say or do to stop you.

A farmer who gives all his energy planting seeds on a 10 acres of land will never reap a little harvest.
If you planted seeds in a plot of land, despite having 10 acres of land, you will never harvest 10 acres of land worth of harvest.

Appreciation does not ask for more, it simply uses what is available at the moment to create more.
I needed to build something with high profit potentials, but I didn’t have enough then, so I used the little I had to do another project that will yield money for the bigger project. That’s the kind of attitude gratitude will give you towards anything you have.
An estate developer who build a bungalow with what he has right now is better off, than another estate developer saving towards a skyscraper.
