Rethinking Greatness


Greatness

If you know that everyone you meet will learn something from you,

...and if you know that you will also learn something from everyone you meet.

If you can look beyond the obvious of what others have to teach you to see their true gifts.

If you can look beyond gender, race, creed or color.

If you don’t need to tell others how great you are.

If you don’t need to tell others how sought after or wanted you are.

If you never need to ask someone to tell you how great you are.

If you value yourself as important, but don’t think you’re more important than anyone else.

If you never state another person is stupid.

If you aren’t critical of everyone and everything.

If you know that everyone’s time matters, not just yours.

If you’ve taken everything you can into account before giving your advice or opinion.

If you can take a moment to truly put yourself in someone else's shoes first.


Rethinking Greatness

If you only think others have something to learn from you.

If you fail to look beyond the obvious of what others have to offer you.

If you pigeon hole people into their genders, races, creeds or colors.

If you have to keep telling others how great you are.

If you have to keep telling others how sought after or wanted you are.

If you have to ask others to tell you how great you are.

If you don't honor yourself, yet think you are more important than someone else.

If you continually state how stupid other people are.

If you are critical of everyone and everything.

If you think only your time matters.

If you haven’t inquired about how something is being done before giving your advice or opinion.

If you haven’t truly put yourself in another persons shoes first.
