Finding a defining moment in history, will always awaken the emotions of us all. It will not only inspire us , but with each inspiring messages remind us that every one of us can reach our potential and achieve whatever we set our mind to; as we were all created for greatness, we were all given talents which if rightly used will set us apart. Hence we all have the ability to fulfill the master plan for our lives.
We are told that the heights that great men reached were only made possible because of the measure of their devotion; their values, and the discipline they exercised. All these were the contributing factor to their success. This allowed them to change the course of history and leave an unforgettable mark, one which can be very difficult to follow unless we are aware of the criteria of true greatness.
These individuals had a will of steel, they stood resolutely for what they hold to be true, were fearless, never faltered in their duty. They were humble men with the ability to do as they purposed.
"True humility does not know it is humble. If it did it would be proud."
They had a will, one which was active and rightly directed. As a result of exercising their will these great men were able to rightly place themselves in life. They were unaware that their actions would be noted and made accessible for generations to view the results of their success.
Today we can still hear the rumblings as their messages echo through the tunnel of time, and even now it still has the ability to arrest our attention and cause us to listen and strive to be all that we can be.
"We are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it, the process is not yet finished, but it is going on, this is not the end, but it is the road."
