Greatness

“[The] will to power is the greatest sickness man has suffered from.  And all our educational systems, all our religions, all our cultures and societies are in absolute support of this sickness.  Everybody wants his child to be the greatest in the world.  Listen to mothers talking about their children, as if they have all given birth to Alexander the Great, Ivan the Terrible, Joseph Stalin, Ronald Reagan… Billions of people are rushing toward power.  One has to understand that this tremendous urge to power is arising from an emptiness within you.  A man who is not power-oriented is fulfilled, contented, at ease, at home as he is.  His very being is an immense gratitude to existence; nothing more is to be asked.  Whatever has been given to you, you had never asked for.  It is a sheer gift out of the abundance of existence.” ~ Osho, Fame, Fortune, and Ambition

“The rare people who do become truly exceptional at something do so not because they believe they’re exceptional.  On the contrary, they become amazing because they’re obsessed with improvement.  And that obsession with improvement stems from an unerring belief that they are, in fact, not that great at all.  It’s anti-entitlement.  People who become great at something become great because they understand that they’re not already great—they are mediocre, they are average—and they could be so much better.” ~ Mark Mason, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

“The difference between great people and everyone else is that great people create their lives actively, while everyone else is created by their lives, passively waiting to see where life takes them next. The difference between the two is the difference between living fully and just existing.” ~ Michael E. Gerber
