A Life of Greatness

“For success like happiness cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side-effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the byproduct of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see in the long run-in the long run I say!-success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think of it.”
Viktor Frankl

I find myself in agreement with the above: I must do what my conscience urges me to do, at whatever outcome this may bring to me, cost or benefit.

Stephen Covey suggests that we must begin with the end in mind.  What we choose to “see” as “the end” is ultimately very important. The “long run” is a very long run indeed – an eternity!

We must also understand our origin, for the law of origins cannot be overlooked in our endeavor to make sense of life. To some, it does not seem necessary to make sense of life, to find meaning and purpose. To me it has been irrepressible, a purpose within the pursuit itself.

My hope is that you will find hope in what I communicate, and that you will receive courage to discover a life of greatness.
