There are two ways to define greatness.

The first is “greater than everyone else.”

The second is “being the best we can be.”

Many of us aspire for greatness and default to the first definition. But, comparison and win-lose come along with “greater than everyone else.” Envy is a key companion too.

We can switch this in our heads to the second definition and focus, instead, on simply being the best version of ourselves. Everybody can aspire to greatness. And, most importantly, everybody can win.

Our choice.
