The greatness you are looking for externally is actually internal.
Many of us are looking for something "great" to be a part of and we are waiting on something "great" to happen. Guess what? We are not going to discover it and it's not going to happen externally. Why? Many of us are catalysts for greatness. If we don't release the internal greatness God has placed inside of us, then it just won't happen. The amazing part is those who we are surrounded by are waiting on us to rise up and be magnificent and quite frankly, we owe this awesome awakening to ourselves. Most of us are tired of being average and experiencing the same level of success over and over. As a result, we must stop being passive by just looking for that "big opportunity" but be aggressive and bold creating the opportunities. In most cases, we must realize after many attempts this is the only way that "great" thing is going to occur.
Ultimately, as individuals we must arrive at the place where we ask ourselves- am I traveling on the line to greatness or aim I wandering in the circle of mediocrity? You may wonder, "How do I arrive at this conclusion"? It's really simple. Is your circle the same people who are doing the same things after all of these years or has your circle constantly changed whereas you have been divinely aligned with new associates and new people who are pushing you pass your comfort zone? Changing your circle will change your cycle, which will ultimately change the direction you are traveling in. Traveling in circles create predictable cycles and limited, average experiences but traveling along lines create endless experiences and great, unpredictable encounters.
