Viscosity of Greatness

You cannot fake it and you certainly can't break it.
There is no way to just take it and it can't be fabricated.

There's no use in wishing for it
and luck wouldn't help you score it.

Not by happenstance nor lack of intent,
it would not show up if you were absent.

It cannot mark a moment on its own,
it was meant for you to be shown.

There is a purpose and it can always begin again,
there’s a message and it's yours through the end.

It inspires from within
and knows the difference between half-hearted and genuine.

Sometimes it's not there until you begin
it may only show up when you're "all in"!

Invigorating and contagious,
it's not uncommon that it may present itself through stages.

It has the power to change the day
just by belief and what you say!

It's true that it may go undiscovered
but continues to whisper to us all until uncovered!

It can recognize itself in another's voice
and it hears when you call upon it by choice!

It's more true that it won't always instantly win,
but persistence is its mark, so go begin!

Your words activate the process and actions manifest,
make time today to endeavor and bring your best!

You may not succeed right from the start,
but get back up and know your heart!

The viscosity of rigor and attitude will pull you through,
stay the course and always be true, be YOU!

You will recognize it when you see
that it's meant for you, you'll be - - GREATNESS!

Greatness Enjoys Company

"Vision over visibility" - Bono of U2.

True and through, this is a very powerful and influential perspective! One that will serve to elevate and improve as powerfully as it will bring change and engage greatness! This takes effort and these efforts bring transformation and harmonize with purpose to propel one to that place where vision was once simply that - a vision. Visibility will always be the storyline for perspective; but consistent effort toward a desired outcome will render greater influence for change. It's in this space where greatness takes root. Greatness enjoys company just as much as effort will require commitment. With greatness, we have the opportunity to make something better while elevating others. Who are you surrounding yourself with? Better yet, who [or what] are you surrounding? - after all, greatness is where YOU are!

Take Measure - It Matters

What is this moment asking of you? It's certainly not asking of you to - just be average! This moment, like all of life, is asking you to be the absolute best version of YOU that you can be! What does that look like? It's a measure that each one of us must be accountable for. It's one in which we feel our power and influence creating meaningful moments. We're not here to make mediocre our benchmark! We are here to harness an energy that moves through time within a space where only greatness can describe the transcendence of passion and purpose. Greatness is trusting in the moment. Trusting that although there may be an unexplained element that seemingly exists outside of our control, our efforts conspire with persistence to render all that is favorable and true.

Shaping a Moment for Influence

excerpt from The Motivation Manifesto: "today's thoughts and actions become our legacy."

Let us always remember that our thoughts and efforts toward today's responsibilities will indeed shape our defining moments of influence and outcomes for tomorrow. Greatness is a choice we define in any given moment - when we introduce our intention thereupon best effort, we leave our legacy in the authenticity of a moment whose generosity is forever captured in a measure marked by date and time.
