What Is Greatness?

We all know people who exhibit greatness. Maybe someone you know personally, through their work, or from history. But what makes them great?

There are many ways to achieve greatness as an individual. Someone might be a leader, or an innovative scientist. It might manifest as an influential artist, or an accomplished athlete. Or even a person who does just one thing, but does it extremely well.

Is there something these individuals have in common? Is there a trait that you recognize as being great in another person? Do you try to develop that trait, or something similar, in yourself?

Why Should We Be Hopeful?

Human beings require hope to help motivate and guide them. Being hopeful is a necessity for good emotional and mental well-being.

However, that’s not always easy. Sometimes, it feels as though there is a constant drumbeat of bad news. From environmental disasters, to civil unrest, to political upheaval, not to mention the worldwide pandemic.

In order to carry on with our lives we need to have a ray of hope. Something that convinces us that yes, it is worthwhile to get out of bed. There are better days on the horizon.

What, specifically, do you think about, when you consider the future? What ideas make you optimistic about what tomorrow may bring? Do you see anything in the events of today that lead you to see favorable times ahead?

In short, why should we be hopeful? Give me some concrete reasons.
