My goal is to be as great as my pets think I am.

There are countless ways of achieving greatness,
but any road to achieving one’s maximum potential
must be built on a bedrock of respect for the individual,
a commitment to excellence,
and a rejection of mediocrity.

I enjoyed helping CMU’s Leadership Safari and UNCA’s Summit Orientation programs get off the ground this week (and along the way become re-addicted to Facebook thank you very much!). I challenged the students on both campuses to seek GREATNESS and I hope you will do the same.
Actually, a little bird whispered in my ear that you already are great, you just need to feel more comfortable revealing it. Remember that showing your real greatness doesn’t come off as boasting, especially if you’re helping others realize they have their own big batch of GREATNESS brewing within!
p.s. Seek an opportunity to tell someone they are GREAT this week, and notice how, well GREAT it feels!
