10 Signs You Are Destined for Greatness
Well, I don’t know about you but the fact is every single one of us is destined for greatness. Yes! You read me right.
Unfortunately, to many of us, life on many levels has not encouraged us to see the seeds of greatness we carry. We seem to walk in an oblivious state of the blind side of greatness we possess.
Interestingly enough, you need to realize that you are not alone in this but many others like you know that they have a feeling of greatness in them and are trying to find it out.
Some have been born of rich parents, some have been born with unimaginable talents, some have been born intelligent and with great character. In all these arrays of things, everyone carries a seed of greatness in them. Yes. Very true.
And therefore, these lead to the 10 crystal clear signs that you carry a great destiny.
1. You Don’t Fear to Dream Big
Some say dreams are just dreams but show me a person who does not dream and I will show you a person who is on the verge of extinction. Great civilizations and revolutions in the world have been born on the mere platform of dreaming. And therefore, by all means, possible dare to dream big than your reality because in dreaming lies a seed of greatness.
2. You Never Stop Learning
A degree is just a percentage of knowledge and it no way gives you a ticket to put your brain on auto-pilot mode. That said, it is important to know that people destined for greatness never stop learning. Ask Bob Collymore, the man at the helm of Safaricom that just announced a Ksh 55.3 Billion in the year ended March 2018. You can learn virtually everything without a degree if you have a hunger for knowledge.
3. You Know How to Build Great Relationships
Relationships are the hallmarks of human living. As the old saying goes, no man is an island no matter how introverted he or she could be. Learning to be open-minded, listening and respecting other peoples point of view while standing your ground is just but to name a few in what entails building strong human relationships. Out of these human relationships emerge great networks. Also, remember that your network is your net worth.
4. Your Third Name is Persistence
Even in the face of adversity, calamity and life misfortunes, you have still managed to bounce back and prove the world wrong. Then be sure that you an outright candidate for greatness. History is dotted with award-winning movie stars and celebrities who never imagined they would go beyond the theatre stage but today they gross our TV screens. It’s only persistence that can define how far they have come.
5. You Want to be Your Own Boss
You are an employee that is known to be loyal and productive in the greater course of meeting your company’s core values. However, that has not prevented you from pursuing your own interests and ambitions in life. With the same energy levels, you give your employer you also put in the effort in pushing forward your passions and ambitions.
6. You Always Want to be Different
John F. Kennedy, former president of the United States said, “Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth” The moment you choose to conform and accept the status quo evidently points to men who have just killed their seeds of greatness. One true mark of greatness lies in daily taking a step to challenge your life mentally, spiritually and in all ways possible.
7. You Have One Thing You are Willing to Die For
“If you haven’t found something you are willing to die for, you aren’t fit to live.” Martin Luther King Jr. I wouldn’t agree more with the aforementioned quote. Indeed, it is true that terrorists thrive in their illegal operations because they have found the one thing to die for. The same extends to you and me. Once you have found the one thing you are willing to die for or you have found it then you are destined for greatness.
8. You Have No Attachment to Material Things
You know how to control your worldly desires and that means living frugally while having the future in mind. Okay, I have a 42-inch Television set, but losing it doesn’t mean life will be boring. Your ability to detach yourself from material things in a world where everybody wants to flaunt about their new Rolex or latest BMW in town shows the seeds of greatness you carry.
9. You Have Room for Randomness
Sometimes the best things in life have happened not because of proper planning and timing but sheer randomness. You wake up one morning with a clearly written to-do list on what to do only for your friend to show up at your doorstep and asks that you accompany him or her to a social event. Well, surprisingly, it just never turns out to be a social event but actually, you happen to also find the one person you would climb mountains to look for: the love of your life.
10. You are Optimistic
Using a scripture in the Bible as an analogy to this point, Luke 6:45 in part says that, out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Anyone negative on the inside will definitely speak words that are negative. The same is true for one who is positive on the inside. Ever met someone who made you want to write down notes every time he or she spoke? If yes, then you know what I mean.
Unleash your seeds of greatness because you are destined to be great!
