True greatness is getting up when you get slammed down.
True greatness is getting up when you get slammed down a million times and looking at those one million times as a million opportunities to practice and refine your technique of getting back up and getting back in the game faster, more efficiently, and better prepared.
True greatness is smiling in the face of adversity.
True greatness is learning your lessons from the past, preparing for a brighter tomorrow, but living life to its fullest in the here and now!
True greatness is never giving up - or, if you have to give up, giving up on your terms and not on their terms; because true greatness is different from stupidity and blind recklessness - someone who is truly great knows when to keep going and knows when to cut his or her losses and stop. He (or she!) knows when to hold 'em, but also knows equally well when to fold 'em!
True greatness is being as wise as a serpent, but, at the same time, being as innocent as a dove (WARNING: Biblical inspiration right there! Ah, you may be inspired - you never know!!!).
True greatness is an internal character trait, not an external trait to boast about or "show off".
You grow into greatness - it is not something you "instantly win" (if you come across a situation like that it is more probably a situation of "blind luck" than actual "true greatness").
True greatness is love, patience, endurance, compassion, empathy, sympathy, and, above all else, hard work and dedication to the cause - whatever your cause may be!
To true greatness!
Better life, better business! May you live long and profit well in sustainable, ethical ways!
