If we want to take charge of our lives, we all need to keep honing our personalities, move our ideals and hopes ahead, fight for our dreams and live our lives around our personal purpose. Our ideal life is not something we “find”—it is something we “create.” The business of being a person is to take our existence and organize it around our plans and purpose so that we create the life we want to live. 

Here are three steps to building your greatness.

  1. Imagine what you want. Use your most vivid imagination possible. Hold the image in your mind’s eye so that you are drawn to it. Be bold and imagine yourself being knocked down and defeated—and victoriously rising like only you can do. See how you are contributing to whatever success you imagine.
  2. Use your common sense. Don’t try to shove round pegs in square holes. If you want to be an artist, start acting like an artist! You’ve got to start doing what you want to do.
  3. Put on your super suit. Greatness takes faith, courage and the ability to ignore ignorance, neglect, negativity and disrespect from others regarding your ideas. Believe that whatever it is you want to do will benefit not just yourself but others as well. If you think this sounds grandiose, remember: Because you are working to fulfill your dreams, you will change others simply because you’ll be more pleasant to be around.

Even a moderate dose of all of the above will set you on a new journey. When we chase pleasure alone, we won’t necessarily win. When we live to make ourselves greater, every day we push forward is another win.
