Becoming great

A man or woman’s thoughts reflect their action and will determine who they are. If you want to self-examine who you are examine your thoughts in relation to your actions. If you do not like what you see change your thoughts and your actions will follow. If you want to be a great man or women focus on your thoughts and they will reform your actions for good. George Washington spent his early years concerned with the man, who men, would see he had become. He memorised rules of etiquette and made of himself a man among men. He prepared for greatness, it did not fall in his lap. He did not separate himself from men nor think himself above men yet men in the past and men in the present can not in the least degree slander him unless you use tabloid history written by his enemies. Even the King of England who had lost one of the largest parts of his kingdom, the Americas referred to Washington as "The  greatest man who had ever lived". Our circle of influence in this life may be small but perhaps in our sphere of influence with a concerted effort when we die perhaps, just perhaps if we had done what we can, doing all we can, might be worthy of having some few say of us that--"that was the greatest men or women I have ever known!"   Richard W Norman
