The Pursuit of Greatness
Sunday at church the message was on the
Pursuit of Greatness.
The overall message is that we eliminate SELF
and serve others.
The WORLD’s Pursuit of Greatness is the “BIG ME.”
Meaning it’s not all about ME…. But about others.
The TRUE pursuit of greatness is the ”LITTLE ME.”
There are 4 attributes of a Great Person!
- A person worth KNOWING.
- A person with a BIG Dream.
(A Dream Big Enough to Help Others)
- Greatness comes from helping others.
- A person with an OTHERS FIRST focus.
There are three practices for true greatness.
- SLOW DOWN.
- LAUGH OFTEN.
- SERVE OTHERS.
You’ll also notice that when you start pursuing
greatness (with focus on others), things start
getting in the way.
When you begin to change, don’t be surprised that
your friends just won’t understand.
Isn’t this the same things that happen when we decide
to go into our own business?
We make a change to our life’s everyday activities.
We can’t go to the basketball court every
day like we once did.
Our priorities have changed and some
people just don’t understand.
Sometimes to encourage yourself, you just might
need to get up out of your chair and have a
SPONTANEOUS DANCE PARTY…. With no one there
So.. I leave you with a couple of thoughts:
- Do you want to be a person worth knowing?
- Do you have a dream big enough to help others?
- Do you have a passion to stay FOCUSED?
What changes do you need to make in your life
to pursue greatness in what matters most?
Think about this….
