Greatness isn’t given.

It won’t be handed to you on a silver platter.

It won’t come in a trust fund.

You won’t wake up one day and have it suddenly thrust upon you.

It’s never an accident.

It’s not a prize on a game show.

It’s not based on your potential.

It doesn’t come with the wave of a magic wand from a fairy godmother.

The mailman won’t deliver it.

And you just can’t rely on others to get it.

Because greatness isn’t given, it’s earned.
