And yes I believe we can all be great in our own way. Living the best life we can live by being kind to others and remembering we are all part of the universe and on the soul level we are one.....

Achieving greatness is a combination of talent, perseverance and luck. Many a talented individual never rose to the level of success as other equally or lesser talented people simply had the misfortune of never having the same breaks and timing. Diana Ross once described her success as a singer something to the effect of being 5% talent and 95% luck.

It requires no talent, no preserverance and very little luck to become great - it takes a very good listener, speaker, broad shoulders and above all - an excellent father. Only then will you realize what it's like to be great in the eyes of the ones who mean the most - your children.

I agree with flbadcatowner
When preparedness meets opportunity 'with a little luck' it can happen;
but I still think it's sometimes who you know :not:
what you know - I know it helped me out a bunch!

M69 I understand where your coming from also-so your correct too.

The combination of the 2 is "True Success".
I - God
II - family
III - friends
IV - remember the 1st 3!

Some see greatness as being famous and having lots of money. Nothing wrong with that but that in and of itself doesn't make for a happy life.

A person can do a lot of great things for others and still be not see themselves as great or happy or living a fulfilled life.

Most of the things we do in our lives will not be noted or seen by many but that does not mean they were not great or that we have not lived a great life.

To all you fine posters "out there" have a great day and know that you can do many great things today and put a smile on the face of everyone you come in contact with.......

Looking at it from that angle, I can hardly disagree.

How many people do we read about who had it all with fame and fortune and still managed to make a train wreck of their lives? At the same time, there are people of much more humble circumstances leading happy and fulfilled lives.

You have to set that bar a little bit higher - not everyone in Hollywood is "great."

Remember, greatness also is described as largeness - as in Orca Winfrey.

I would say that Oprah is not one who made a mess of her life. She managed fame and fortune very well.
