Destined for Greatness? 10 Signs you are

Well, I don’t know about you. But the fact is we are all destined for greatness. Yes! You read me right.

Life on many levels has not encouraged us to see the seeds of greatness we carry. We seem to walk in an oblivious state of the blind side of greatness we possess.

You need to realize that you are not alone in this. Many others know they have a feeling of greatness in them and are trying to find it out.

Some have been born of rich parents. Some have been born with unimaginable talents. Still on the same not, some have been born intelligent and with outstanding character. In all these arrays of things, everyone carries a seed of greatness in them. Yes. Very true.

And therefore, these lead to the 10 crystal clear signs that you carry a great destiny.

1. You Don’t Fear to Dream Big 

Some say dreams are just dreams, but show me a person who does not dream? If not, I will show you a person on the verge of extinction.

Great civilizations and revolutions in the world have been born on the mere platform of dreaming.

By all means, possibly dare to dream bigger than your reality because a seed of greatness lies in dreams.

2. You are Destined for Greatness if you Never Stop Learning 

A degree is just a percentage of knowledge. In no way does it give you a ticket to put your brain on auto-pilot mode.

That said, it is important to know that people destined for greatness never stop learning. Safaricom, the Kenya giant telecommunication network, had Ksh 55.3  Billion in the year ended March 2018.

The late Bob Collymore was at the helm then. Bob never had a University degree. Nevertheless, he kept learning.

You can learn virtually everything without a degree if you have a hunger for knowledge.

3. You are Destined for Greatness when you Build Great Relationships

Relationships are the hallmarks of human living. As the old saying goes, no man is an island, no matter how introverted you could be.

Learning to be open-minded, listen, and respect other people’s point of view is important. 

Knowing how to live right with people is key. Understanding human psychology means you are destined for greatness. 

Out of these human relationships emerge great networks. Also, remember that your network is your net worth.

4. Your Third Name is Persistence

You can bounce back even in the face of adversity and life’s misfortunes. You can prove the world wrong.

If this fits you, be sure you are a  candidate for greatness.

History is dotted with award-winning movie stars and celebrities who never imagined they would go beyond the theatre stage.

Today, they gross our TV screens. It’s only persistence that can define how far they have come.

5. You Want to be Your Own Boss

You may be an employee that is good and committed to achieving your company’s core values.

However, that has not prevented you from pursuing your own interests and ambitions in life. Maybe you want to start an online business

You give your employer the same energy levels; you also put in the effort to push forward your passions and ambitions.

6. You Always Want to be Different 

John F. Kennedy, former President of the United States, said, “Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.” 

Accepting the status quo points to a man who has just killed his seeds of greatness.

One true mark of greatness is daily taking a step to challenge your life mentally, spiritually, and in all possible ways.

7. You Have One Thing You are Willing to Die for 

“If you haven’t found something you are willing to die for, you aren’t fit to live.” Martin Luther King Jr.

I couldn’t agree more with the aforementioned quote. Terrorists thrive in their illegal operations because they have found the one thing to die for.

The same extends to you and me. Once you have found the one thing you are willing to die for, you are destined for greatness.

8. You Have no Attachment to Material Things 

You know how to control worldly desires, which means living frugally.

Okay, I have the newest Subaru model, but losing it doesn’t mean life will be boring.

Your ability to detach yourself from material things in a world where everybody wants to flaunt their new Rolex or latest BMW in town shows the seeds of greatness you carry.

9. You Have Room for Randomness

Sometimes the best things in life have happened not because of proper planning and timing but sheer randomness.

You wake up one morning with a written to-do list of what to accomplish for the day. Funny enough, your friend shows up at your doorstep and asks that you accompany him to a social event.

Well, it just never turns out to be a social event. Actually, you happen also to find the one who becomes your soulmate. 

10. You are Optimistic 

Using scripture in the Bible as an analogy to this point, Luke 6:45, in part, says that, out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.

Anyone negative on the inside will definitely speak negative words. The same is true for one who is positive on the inside.

Ever met someone who made you want to write points every time he or she spoke? If yes, then you know what I mean.

Unleash your seeds of greatness because you are destined for greatness!

Bottom Line 

Do you want to know if you are destined for greatness? Well, you just read about what makes you one. In fact, you already are, and this post confirms that you are. Guard your mind and stay positive against all negative forces in life. Safe journey to your great destiny.
