Greatness Is

Greatness is more than a titled position; it is more than a designated post.
Power that is given is less powerful than that which is taken.
But power is not taken only by force.

Greatness comes in the taking of power when others want it to be yours.
It is the acceptance of responsibility and the sharing of success.
It is the truest combination of confidence and humility.

Greatness comes in shunning the desire for power, but not in declining it.
It is using power well–for others–and not for selfish gain.
Only the truly great will ever think of themselves last or not at all.
