Greatness: to define such a word in a few mere sentences is almost impossible.
Greatness is being able to defy all odds & make something of yourself, despite what society thinks.
Greatness is refusing to become just "another statistic" or "another court case"
Greatness is allowing yourself to strive for excellence in every aspect of your life.
Greatness isn't defined by how many awards & accolaades one receives, but is measured
by the impact an individual leaves on this earth.
Greatness is resilence; not uttering the phrase "I give up"
Greatness is strength, not physical but mental & emotional & spiritual
Greatness is saying to yourself "I'm gonna prove them wrong" & acting on it
The word “Greatness” holds so much promise behind it... It's up to us to give it a meaning.
