The 4 Stages of Greatness

Everyone is greatness material. We all are endowed with unlimited potential. Greatness is chained within us waiting to be unleashed. Unfortunately, in every generation, very few unchain their greatness. The overwhelming majority fails to attain any level of greatness at all.

There are four stages the great ones from diverse cultures and generations passed through to achieve their inherent greatness. Those who unchained their greatness were like everyone else except that they followed four straightforward steps (the 4 E’s). They Explored, Enacted, Endured, and Emancipated their greatness to the fullest.

The great ones explored and discovered what predisposed them to manifest greatness. They took bold actions based on their findings. Those who attained greatness also faced numerous obstacles as a result of taking massive actions and pursuing the road to greatness. However, they endured, outlasted continual setbacks, emptied themselves, and ultimately emancipated the greatness shackled within and left enduring legacies.

By the way, my recent episode is based on my book ‘Unchain Your Greatness’. The book, on top of providing the model the great ones adopted to unchain their greatness to the fullest, it narrates the stories of great men and women from different religions, age-groups, and fields to show you the attitude and mindset they had as they progressed through these four simple phases. It also shares what the great ones discovered, the actions they took, the challenges they overcame, and the legacies they left because they unchained their greatness to the fullest.

In Episode 16 (The 4 Stages of Greatness), I shared the 4 major stages (I call them the 4Es) the great ones from diverse cultures and generations passed through to unchain their greatness: Explore your greatness, Enact on your discoveries, Endure till the end, and Emancipate your greatness to the fullest. In this episode, I shared some insights, examples, and stories to empower you to follow the framework the great ones before you used to manifest their unique greatness.
