Greatest Of All Time Print
How many Super Bowl rings does it take to become a goat?
I’m not referring to those four-legged mammals with a taste for tin cans, but rather the label of “GOAT” – the Greatest Of All Time.
Debating the greatest of all time is a juicy topic for sports talk radio, because greatness stirs something within us. We are inspired when we see it manifested, be it in the long and decorated career of Tom Brady, a delicious dish prepared with ease by Gordon Ramsay, or the compelling selflessness and compassion of Mother Teresa.
The dictionary defines great as “remarkable in magnitude, quality, skill, or effectiveness.” Our preoccupation with debating the greatest of all time is a trap that prevents us from striving for greatness ourselves.
The seeds of greatness are in our DNA because we each have a spark of the divine within us.
We can’t count on being considered the greatest. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t strive to be great.
There is one category you can be assured of being the GOAT, and that’s the category of YOU. Your job is to be the Greatest You of All Time.
Identify your gifts. Honor them by honing them and sharing them with others. Be committed. Keep going. And empower others along the way. Do those things, and although I can’t guarantee you’ll ever be deemed the GOAT by pundits, I will guarantee that people will be inspired by the greatness they see within you.
No Super Bowl rings required.
