So many people have this idea: I want to achieve something great or be somebody great. And they neglect the step that leads to greatness. They dont honor this step at this moment because they have this idea of some future moment where they are going to be great.
By: Eckhart Tolle
You cannot plant greatness as you plant yams or maize. Who ever planted an iroko tree — the greatest tree in the forest? You may collect all the iroko seeds in the world, open the soil and put them there. It will be in vain. The great tree chooses where to grow and we find it there, so it is with the greatness in men.
