To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

Make it great

Whatever you do, make it great. Whether you’re developing a product, developing a customer, building a relationship, serving a cause, raising a family or planning your life, make it great. There is a place for greatness in every life, in every job, in every situation.

Make it great. There’s no reason not to. Greatness definitely takes more effort than mediocrity, yet in the end it is no more difficult. The discipline and energy required to make it great, are far less painful than the regret you’ll endure if you settle for anything less.

Greatness comes from living with purpose and passion. Know what you want, know why you want it, commit to doing whatever it takes, and you cannot help but make it great.

— Ralph Marston
