Lately the word, “greatness” has been connected to everything involving Keandre Curry, because I'm trying to irritate you—well not exactly. See what's going on is that, “Strive to Achieve Greatness,” is my new message. I always talk about becoming successful, but didn't have a message that reflected that, until now. I believe that everyone can achieve greatness, whatever that is to them. For me, greatness defines a life filled with continued personal growth and success. The key word in there is “continued”.
Success shouldn't be limited to one goal or one dream. I have this belief that if you achieve one goal, then you can accomplish the next goal, and so forth. Meaning, if you did it once, you can do it again. However, I also believe that trying to re-accomplish something is much more difficult than it was the first time. The obstacles that you faced during the previous journey, will not be obstacles that you face the next time around. That may not be fair to you, but it is knowing the fact that life doesn't stop for nobody.
Life is like a clock: it's moving even when you're not. This may be off the subject, but that can be applied to your competition as well. While you sit around waiting for opportunities to put handed to you, your competition is doing the opposite, and going to the opportunities. To achieve greatness, you have to want it. You have to take all the necessary steps to get there. I see greatness as the next best thing....The only path that I have to travel. And the best possibility that any opportunity can give me.
Greatness can be what you want it to be. If you want to live your dream, Strive to Achieve It. If you want to live everyday not knowing if you have enough to pay your bills, then so be it. I nor anybody can tell you what is best for you. Only you know what is best for you.
With that being said, you are the one that is responsible for making sure that you give yourself the best that you deserve. It doesn't have to be,“greatness”, but don't let it be failure either. There is no excuse to be a failure. There is also no exception for believing that“ you can't”, because you can and will.
Go after your dreams, and don't let your foot off the peddle. Yes, you will face many obstacles along the way, but that's to your benefit. The more difficult something is, the more effort you tend to put into it. From personal experience, great things take the longest time to come through, which can discourage you quickly. Don't let the length to achieve your goal stop you from believing in yourself. You should always believe, because honestly there is no legit reason in the world for you not to. No matter what greatness is to you, I want you to Strive to Achieve It.
