Being Great

Posted By: Randy GageJanuary 2, 2013

So here’s a fascinating question for you:  What is stopping you from being great?

Serious question…

I mean being really, really GREAT.  I ask, because here’s what we do know:

  • Your spouse can’t stop you from being great.
  • Not having a formal education can’t stop you from being great.
  • Being born poor can’t stop you from being great.
  • Being too young or too old can’t stop you from being great.
  • The country you live in can’t stop you from being great.
  • Being raised by alcoholic or abusive parents can’t stop you from being great.
  • Being an orphan or being raised in foster homes can’t stop you from being great.
  • Because you were told constantly, “you’re no good,” can’t stop you from being great.
  • Still having a lot of student loans can’t stop you from being great.
  • Being born with physical disabilities can’t stop you from being great.

So let’s ask the question again…

What is stopping you from being great?

I think there is only one thing that can prevent you from stepping into your greatness: and that is the belief you can’t.

But what I think doesn’t matter.  What really matters – is what YOU think!

  1. So true Randy.. All we have to do is look at our lives. If nothing has changed, out beliefs and thoughts have stopped us from bringing our gift to the world. It's all the 'excuses' we have that you mention here and many more that are in the way.. I CHOOSE to NO longer use ANY of the old excuses which are based in beliefs I was taught as a child and BE GREAT and bring my amazing gifts to the world NOW. Can we get a BOOM??

One of my favorites 🙂

  5. Yes for sure. It's how and what we feed our minds that will determine that. Cultivation of the right mindset and feeding the subconscious mind will make that happen

  7. The "thing" with the thought is the crucial factor, YES! Good point again.
    I find myself lately quieting my regulaar thoughts down and some are even "sent to their rooms" like naughty kids who won´t stop showing up in front of me, permanently asking for some of their attention.
    Quite some new action to handle in my brain box  🙂 
    "Just" thoughts......and it´s all what it´s about.  -->> There´s progress ahead!

  9. I absolutely agree Randy. If the programs in your head are constantly telling you that you can't do something, and you listen to those negative programs, you won't do it. We have all heard the saying, "If you think you can you're right and if you think you can't you're right."
    Best wishes for a great year Randy!

  17. In the mist of us, there are many successful people who are handicapped somehow yet they achieved tremendous amount of success. These are proofs that nothing can stop us. Unfortunately, many continue to believe that they can't.
