9 Steps Towards Greatness

What key-features you need to find the greatness inside of you.

1. Stop thinking bad about yourself

You know yourself better than anybody else and may know all the power and weakness inside of you. It’s not good to fight against your weakness, it’s better to use your strength, which leads us to the next point.

2. Don’t force yourself.

We are often told, that it’s good to force yourself, to fight against your weakness. If you work hard, then you’ll accomplish what you want. That may happen, yes, but I’ll say, you never find your own greatness this way. The better way is to…

3. Find the key to self-motivation.

Yesterday I went running – no big distance. I just ran. My body felt like not wanting to run after a while and the air was hot and wet. I gave myself the freedom to stop running if I wanted. But I wanted to run, without forcing myself. I listened to my body and decided .. okay.. let’s try how far we good but not too far. I then ran 2 times longer than I first planned.
It’s all about the thinking. Why thinking negative? And I even didn’t forced myself to motivation. It’s a natural motivation which is not easy to find but if you find it, you’ll have fun and power to walk on the path to greatness in freedom.

4. Repeat moments of power

Moments of power are moments where there is no need of forcing yourself and the motivation comes naturally but not forced. You feel great by having that moment, like I feel great right now writing this article :-)
If there is any possibility to repeat what gives you energy and leads you to greatness, do it. Never let routines ruin your Life, but create routines, that makes your Life better. So it’s not a question if the things that we constantly do are great, but its the answer to repeat great things and you will rock the planet. More on that in the future.

5. Be aware of the greatness in you.

You already have it. Think big about yourself :-) Just do great things to develop even more greatness. Just do it. Start with the simple things. Don’t make a plan to be great one day in the future. Be great today. If you can’t find the greatness today, how will it reach you in the future? It won’t happen.

6. Share your greatness with other people.

Find out, who likes your kind of greatness and connect with those people. Some may not realise your greatness, but others will. You need supporters. Don’t fight for yourself against people, but rather help people, by motivating them.

7. Look for the greatness in the people you meet, in the nature and your surroundings.

That could be the first point on my list, cause to have an eye for greatness in others makes it more easy to realize the greatness in you. But, never think to big about the greatness of other people or to bad about it, don’t judge. Take it for motivation to find your own. Cause YOU have your own greatness.

8. Take the first step.

I think the way to greatness is not easy to find, but it’s worth to search for it. If you just realize, that you have greatness in you, than thats a good start. Wonderful.
That’s everything I wanted with this article, to make you aware of the greatness in you.

9. Smile.

Just smile at yourself in the mirror and realise that someone elses greatness created you the way you are.

The Power of doing

Right now, I have less than half an hour to write this article. After that I go to work, but want to post it today. It’s one of the hottest days of the year here in Germany and I’m sitting outside, drinking a cup of coffee.

So I decided to write something that is not perfect, but just written.

The ability to write better and more helpful articles will develop over time. I’m shure.

So the key-part of blogging for me is to write on a schedule. I call this the Power of doing. The most important part to keep a blog alive is blogging regulary.

If you write, whether it’s good or bad, but you are on your path to greatness, you’ll succeed.

Keep it simple and do it. Don’t dream of doing it perfect and then not even start.
