A person who it is believed to possess greatness stands apart from others in some way. It may be by the size or originality of their vision and their ability to manifest that vision. And yet those who recognise that greatness, whether they display it themselves or not, also have greatness within them; if not they could not see it in another. In many ways, the achievements of one person always belongs to many people , for we don’t accomplish much alone in this world. People who display greatness rely upon others who are able to see as they do, to listen, encourage, and support. Without those people who recognise greatness and move in to support it, even the greatest ideas or works of art, would remain unborn.
We are all moved by greatness when we see it, and although the experience is to some degree subjective, we know the feeling of it. When we experience it, it’s as if something within us stirs, awakens, and comes to meet what was inside us all along. When we respond to someone else’s greatness, we feed our own. We may feel called to dedicate ourselves to their vision, or we may be inspired to follow a path we forge ourselves. Either way, we cannot lose when we recognise that the greatness we see in others also belongs to us. Our recognition of this is a call to action that, if heeded, will inspire others to see in us the greatness they also possess. This creates a chain reaction of greatness unfolding itself endlessly into the future.
Ultimately, greatness is simply the best of what humanity has to offer. Greatness does what has not been done before and inspires the same courage that it requires. When we see it in others, we know it, and when we trust its presence in ourselves, we embody it.
