Whether our primary, day-to-day activities involve school, work or family, it’s easy for us to be swept along by the flow of life believing that if we just do our best, things will all just work out some day. Many of us feel that if we work hard and keep our nose clean, at some point we will have a life that provides much happiness and personal satisfaction.
The U.S. has made significant progress over the past 30 or 40 years to make all things fair and equal for its citizens and for those who come here. It’s an important objective for a nation to have, one that we are continuously working to enhance, and hopefully someday soon, we will actually achieve it.
We all want to be great, to feel special and to be treated in special ways. However, when we talk or think about greatness, we often confuse what we do with who we are.
