Greatness

April 13th, 2020: 

Everyone is destined for greatness. It just depends on what they define greatness as. If we stop comparing ourselves to one another and simply listen to our hearts and work hard, we will be great. We will succeed. We succeed every day we use our gifts for good. Fame does not directly correlate to greatness. Money does not directly correlate to success. They say money is simply a tool. It is not the destination. It is not the goal.

I don’t need to have my name in the history books. At the end of the day, the people we look up to, the people who have their names in the history books and the people we study often have a village lifting them up. Their village helped them get to where they are and every single one of those individuals who comprise those villages are just as important as the names we know.

We can’t all be the next Lin Manuel Miranda, Ava DuVernay, Thomas Edison, Isa Rae, Madam CJ Walker or Elon Musk. But, I have really exciting news for you: We can all be the first us.

It’s important to remember this. Even if it’s not our faces, even if it’s not our names, we all have a part to play and it is beautiful and it is necessary. It is needed. We are needed. You are needed.
