I often wonder what makes great people great and after spending 30 years savoring and fighting life, I am only starting to understand Greatness and its roots.

Now I feel anybody can choose to reach those celebrated heights in his life and its a matter of ambition than intelligence or wealth. I feel a great ambition or goal is what propels ordinary men to extraordinary heights. One other important thing is perseverance though. If one cannot stick to his goals and shy away from failures midway, he will never see his dream come true.

Men are like catapults in my opinion. The farther is your target the more you will stretch yourself and realize how much force you can generate and the strength you have.

So set a great goal and test yourself. In time you will be surprised of your own abilities that never surfaced before that point in time.
