Discovering Your Greatness

by Lance Ekum on · 16 comments

There’s always tomorrow. 

Have you ever thought or said that (or some­thing similar)?

See — when we’re cruis­ing through this thing called our life, and things are going as they nor­mally do (and often, even if they’re not all that nor­mal) — there’s this sense that tomor­row is always there.

And tomor­row — leads to next week, next month, next year, next decade.

Are you liv­ing up to the pos­si­bil­i­ties that are within you?  Are you actively lev­el­ing up your life — and choos­ing to live inten­tion­ally — EVERY day?

Or — is there always a tomor­row for that?

The Com­fort Zones of Our Life

It’s within each of us — great­ness.  (you, me, everyone)

The thing is — it’s all too easy to just con­tinue doing what we’ve always done. 

Life’s good…or…life’s not so good.  It doesn’t mat­ter — it’s easy to stay in the com­fort zone we’re in.

Do you?

What if, though, the key to dis­cov­er­ing your great­ness was really quite simple?

Dis­cov­er­ing Your Greatness

Action.

Do some­thing. Try that new thing you’ve been think­ing about.  Go to that place you’ve been talk­ing about. Be scared, and act anyway.

Some will be great big flops.  And that’s a really great thing — because it means you’ve tried some­thing, learned a bit along the way, and found out some­thing that either didn’t work for you or that you need to make some adjust­ments to. 

Some will be great big wins.  Cel­e­brate them!  Savor the feel­ing of this “being alive” in that moment!  Enjoy what you have done.

Many will be some­where in between.  Some good, some more chal­leng­ing.  All good (really good).  See — if you’re out there and “doing” some­thing — you ARE dis­cov­er­ing your greatness. 

Maybe it will come really quickly.  Maybe it will take much longer than you had planned (or hoped for).

The act of doing — it’s the motion that gets you mov­ing in that direc­tion.  And it IS out there — your greatness.

So — get out there — do some­thing — TODAY

DO some­thing — and dis­cover more fully who you are, and move into that great­ness that is you.
