I believe that William Shakespeare said it best when he said, “Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.”
There are two things that Will Smith and William Shakespeare have in common. 1) They both have the name William. 2)They are both scholar’s in motivation and inspiration.
Here are a few quotes that I hope inspire you as much as they inspire me. If you want to get an extra boost of inspiration- Watch the video!!! Will Smith knows what he is talking about.
“You don’t set out to build a wall. You don’t say ‘I’m going to build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that’s ever been built.’ You don’t start there. You say, ‘I’m going to lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid. You do that every single day. And soon you have a wall.” – Will Smith
“The separation of talent and skill is one of the greatest misunderstood concepts for people who are trying to excel, who have dreams, who want to do things. Talent you have naturally. Skill is only developed by hours and hours and hours of beating on your craft.” – Will Smith
“Those who believe they can do something and those who believe they can’t are both right.” – Henry Ford
“Man’s greatness lies in his power of thought”. – Blaise Pascal
“There is no greatness without a passion to be great, whether it’s the aspiration of an athlete or an artist, a scientist, a parent, or a businessperson.” – Anthony Robbins
“For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” -Jeremiah 29:11 (Living Bible)
“When you are destined for greatness, it shows in everything you do. It becomes you. Greatness becomes you.” – Lorii Myers
“Perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.” – J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
A little inspiration goes a long way so let’s inspire to motivate not only others but ourselves. What greatness are we truly capable of?
