Have you been watching the incredible athletes from around the world the past week in the 2012 Olympics from London? I've been nearly glued to my TV in the evenings (and trying to avoid internet pages that might post the results beforehand and spoil it for me).
Aside from watching the actual competitions, I love the stories they highlight on various athletes and what they've gone through in their pursuit of excellence.
Yet, as I shared in my post last week, you don't have to be an Olympian to be considered great. In fact, you don't even need to make headlines. We all have the capability for greatness within each of us. See the video below that exemplifies this.
Greatness is like a seed planted in the fertile soil of our minds waiting to be nurtured so it can sprout forth. Sometimes greatness sprouts from unlikely or unassuming places. Sometimes it comes like lightning, out of the blue, and sometimes it builds up slowly from small but persistent effort. Just starting from where you are, even if it seems a long way from where you want to be, can lead to greatness.
The Nike commercial below really struck me when I first saw it, and is a perfect example of how greatness can be measured in many ways beyond the typical. I credit Nike for thinking beyond the norm of greatness.
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson
