To Be Great

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said,

"Everyone has the power for greatness, not fame, but greatness, because greatness is determined by service."

Do you agree that everyone has the potential for greatness? Maybe you think serving others isn't what makes someone great; if that's the case, what do you think are the are the qualifying features of greatness?

Yes and no to the first question. Greatness is determined by service and passion. In order to be great, you need passion. So you could be the best chef in the world, but without passion, you're not even 1% great! Dr. King was half right, because he forgot to mention passion also makes greatness. If nobody took passion in their work, nobody would be great. Passion and service make greatness in a person.

There is only one way to become great. Be passionate in your work. If you aren't passionate, well, no good will come out of it.
