Monthly Motivation is all about bringing inspiration and insight directly to your inbox. On the first Monday each month, the Greatness Apparel Blog will share a new motivational quote or phrase with you.
But, because words mean very little without action, we will also share ideas and strategies on how you can take those words and apply them to your life and the lives around you. Then, it will be up to you to act.
It’s all about taking it one step further, one step closer to great.
Are you up for the challenge?
Great. Then, prepare yourself for Monthly Motivation.
What better way to kick off the first Monthly Motivation than to discuss two important words: Be Great.
Certainly, the word "great" means different things to different people. But that's okay. No one is at the exact same starting point in life.
Heck, even the dictionary can’t narrow the word down to one definition. To instill some level of precedent, here is one Merriam- Webster Dictionary definition:
“of an extent, amount, or intensity considerably above the normal or average”
Your "normal or average" (your starting point) is different from everyone else, so it makes sense that your definition of what it means to "Be Great" is different too.
Really, greatness is about understanding your fullest potential and not straying away from the challenge to reach that potential.
Because greatness is not about doing things perfectly, it’s about doing things purposefully.
The next time you get done with a task at work, school, home, or the gym, don’t ask yourself if the result was perfect. Instead, ask yourself this question, “Was that the best I could do?”
If you are constantly operating at your highest level of potential, you are being great.
5 Ways to Elevate Your Greatness this Month
Being great isn’t just an action, it’s a recurring series of actions. It’s a habit. Start your greatness addiction by trying one, or all five, of these acts of greatness.
At least one day this month, get up an hour earlier than normal and do something constructive for yourself or someone else.
Send this link to a friend or family member to help them expand their potential.
Ask a co-worker what they are struggling with, and see if you can help find a solution.
Ask a close friend or family member, “what is something you think you I could do better at?”
- Do one thing that you’ve always been too scared to do before. Once you do it, post it with pride to social media and be sure to share it with the Greatness Apparel Facebook page and tag @GreatnessEmpire on Instagram.
Don’t Just Be, Be Great
Our hope is that this post (and each upcoming post) will serve as a month-long reminder for you to not only strive for greatness but to take actionable steps towards achieving greatness. Want more?
Of course you do! And what better way to start your journey towards being great, then by wearing greatness?
