Remarkable You:

You Have Greatness Within You
“The object of all life is development, and everything that lives has an inalienable right to all the development it is capable of attaining.” — Wallace Wattles


How much development are you capable of? Do you know? As anyone ever let you in on your remarkable self? You probably think I am blowing air, but I’m not. You are truly remarkable. And, that is irrespective of your experience of life up to this present time. There are great things in front of you. That is only if you do not settle. You have greatness within you. You have potentials.

You do know compared to all those who have made it in this life, you are one of the most likely people to. You sure got a lot going for you than most did. If they could make it, you stand a whole much better chance to. Only refuse to settle. Keep pushing. Stay at your duty post. Keep showing up and grinding.

Abraham Lincoln: Born into poverty, was faced with defeat throughout his life. He lost eight elections, twice failed in business, and suffered a nervous breakdown. He could have quit many times – but he didn't and because he didn't quit, he became the 16th President of the United States of America at the age of 51. Becoming one of the three greatest presidents in the history of the United States of America.

“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing.” — Abraham Lincoln

KFC founder Colonel Sanders didn't become a professional chef until he was 40, didn't franchise Kentucky Fried Chicken until he was 62, and didn't become an icon until after he sold his company at 75. At the age of sixty-five, after running a restaurant for several years, Harland Sanders found himself penniless. He started traveling by car to different restaurants and cooked his fried chicken on the spot for restaurant owners.

If they liked it, they entered into an agreement to sell his chicken. He was turned down 1009 times before his chicken was accepted once! By 1964, Colonel Harland Sanders had 600 franchises selling his trademark chicken.

“I’ve only had two rules. Do all you can and do it the best you can.” — Colonel Harland Sanders

Samuel L. Jackson only got his big break in 1991 at the Hollywood-old age of 43.

“I don’t understand how people live without creating.” – Samuel L. Jackson

How old are you? Why do you think you are done? Continue pushing. “Where there is no struggle, there is no strength. (Oprah Winfrey) “Without struggle, there is no progress.” (Frederick Douglas) Why give up on your remarkable self? You’ve got greatness within you. You have potentials.
