Aspire to Greatness

When I consider the word “aspire” I imagine reaching beyond the now. Merriam-Webster defines aspire as “to seek to attain or accomplish a particular goal”. We aspire for many things that is we set out to accomplish something, but without the how to accomplish the thing our aspirations tend to fade. Now that I’m a twitter fan I read so many aspiring tweets. The tweeters aspire to be great leaders, entrepreneurs, parents, coaches, marketers, and the list goes on. For those who have accomplished their goals how did it happen? I mean did they just wake up one day with a vision and the next day it happened? I truly don’t believe that was the case. Maybe, they knew somebody who knew somebody who helped them reach their aspirations? This is possible. However, when I read the words of those whose aspirations have been successful there are some key ingredients that resonate:

1). They didn’t aspire to be great. Instead they aspired to greatness. This means they didn’t seek out fame and fortune to be their driving force. They sought passion which produced profit ~ Me
2). They resisted being ordinary ~ Warren Buffett
3). They didn’t wait for things to happen they made things happen ~ Sasha Azevedo
4). They didn’t take the short cuts ~ Helen Keller
5). They committed to staying with their brand ~ Kroger, Walgreens, Gillette

These are just a few key ingredients, but if combined properly the top 5 will keep your aspirations alive and catapult you closer to what you aspire. In addition, a daily dose of inspiring quotes can move you closer to your aspirations Lastly, for those of you who aspire to greatness I would like to leave you with a word for thought, “Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth”. Proverbs 10:4 (NIV)

  2. Thanks for the useful information on credit repair on this amazing blog. Things i would advice people would be to give up the particular mentality that they buy at this moment and pay later. Being a society many of us tend to make this happen for many issues. This includes holidays, furniture, plus items we’d like. However, you have to separate your wants from the needs. When you are working to improve your credit rating score actually you need some sacrifices. For example you are able to shop online to save money or you can check out second hand outlets instead of expensive department stores for clothing.

  3. One thing I’d really like to say is the fact that car insurance cancelling is a dreadful experience and if you’re doing the appropriate things as being a driver you simply will not get one. A number of people do have the notice that they are officially dropped by their own insurance company they then have to fight to get more insurance after a cancellation. Inexpensive auto insurance rates are generally hard to get after a cancellation. Knowing the main reasons pertaining to auto insurance cancelling can help people prevent completely losing in one of the most crucial privileges obtainable. Thanks for the concepts shared through your blog.
