Great people who were destined to be great, didn’t just born great. They probably had to suffer even more which makes them above the average person. Because they commit to try to be that great person. So it makes sense they earn the respect.
Not because they can withstand hardships. But because they choose to stand firm against waves and waves of hardships without ever blaming others or life or ever think they can’t and quit. They make their time worthwhile by actually making great happen in their lives.
They come out with more love, compassion and patience. They win at life, they win to see the genuine beauty of life… And they understood it is only there to be appreciated for awhile. And how that temporary moment should be made even more worthwhile because it is worth it.
They made their choice and they knew what’s to come. The path of greatness has always been there for those who are made of courage and determination.
Don’t be afraid to be great. All you have to do is choose to be one and stick through it.
