Path To Greatness

If you’re a regular reader you know that I love quotes that make me think.  I found another one that I’d like to share.

It’s from English poet and philosopher Samuel Taylor Coleridge:

“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”

I spent at least a half hour today contemplating that quote.  At first I set out to prove it wrong.  I did this by making a mental list of all the great things in my life and the great things I’ve accomplished.

Without fail… everything great always came out of an enthusiastic effort.  I guess Coleridge was on to something.

I’m about to start on a project.  One that I’m unsure of.  One that, to be honest, I’m a little skeptical of the outcome.  This quote has me doing an attitude adjustment.

If I go at it half-hearted there’s no way I’ll be able to make it great.  Go at it with 100% enthusiasm and who knows.  Something great could happen.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a relationship, church committee, work project, whatever… whenever you want greatness choose to proceed with enthusiasm.

What’s the greatest thing you’ve accomplished and was it because you were enthusiastic about it?
