William Shakespeare once said and I quote: “Some are born into greatness, some achieve greatness, while others have greatness thrust at them.” Everybody desires greatness. It is God’s plan for you to be successful because that is the reason He created you. Nobody is born to fail or born as a failure. Despite the fact that everyone is born to succeed, some allow fear, discouragement, a little failure to deter them from achieving greatness.
The pathway to greatness is not for cowards nor quitters, it is meant for those who despite all odds are ready to pay the price to gain the prize. There is a saying that says ” Tough times never last, but tough people do.” Achieving greatness is for the strong in heart. It is for those who have set there mind to achieve their dream.
Here are seven signs that you’re destined for success and greatness
1. You’re very resourceful
This is one of the most important qualities for greatness and success. You always figure out a way to make things happen and work for you no matter what you are faced up with.
2. You are a natural problem solver
This is similar to been resourceful. This quality is mostly found in entrepreneurs because they are natural problem solvers. That’s because problem solving is critical to virtually everything we do, from overcoming common day-to-day challenges that hinder your productivity to figuring out that next big business idea by identifying problems and thinking of creative solutions in the form of a product or service.
3. Nothing stops you from achieving your goals
Most people embark on a project that they cannot finish. Are you that kind of person that starts a project and stick to it until you finish it? If you always complete what you set out to do no matter what happens, and never allow yourself to settle or quit on your goals, you possess one of the most valuable qualities a person can have — and a key to realizing greatness in any endeavor.
4. You are relentlessly persistent
Persistence is a quality that successful people all over display. Persistence helps you to maintain the energy necessary to get to your destination. Once you exhibit this quality, you are destined for greatness and success.
5. You are not afraid of asking questions
Realizing greatness requires self-development, and self-development requires that you be willing and unafraid to ask questions. It’s as simple as that. If you’re the kind of person who isn’t afraid to raise your hand in a class setting, and you possess the willingness to step outside of your comfort zone, then you very well may be destined for greatness.
6. You never fail
What I mean in this point is that you don’t allow failure to stop you. You always view failure as a stepping stone rather than a stumbling block. This quality is exhibited by most successful people, they always see a lesson in the the so called failure of a thing. Once you have this quality, you are destined for greatness in life.
7. You understand that change is in your hands
Many believe that people– and the world at large– can’t be changed, that we’re all somehow stuck blowing in a great big wind called fate and have little to no say about what happens to us. This is not only a damaging belief, it’s fundamentally wrong.
If you understand that change is in your hands, that’s a healthy sign you’re destined for greatness because you understand that you have your hands on the wheel, and naturally look for ways to improve and move forward. You can decide to make a difference not only in your own life, but also in the life of others.
