The Highest Level of Greatness

It's unfortunate that billions have passed through this universe without fully taping into their unlimited potential and manifesting their highest selves.

Even among those who attained relative success during their lifetime, very few became the best version of themselves while alive. Among those who tasted greatness, only some attained the highest level of greatness that ended with fulfillment and an enduring legacy.

So many myths discourage millions from even thinking about it, let alone claiming it. Though becoming great in their own unique ways is their birthright and they have what it takes within, many pass away without even entertaining the idea of them being candidates to manifest their highest selves during their lifetime. 

Therefore, this book is written to demystify the faulty beliefs that keep the overwhelming majority of people at bay from becoming the best version of themselves. It encourages you to pursue the highest level of greatness. Not all greatnesses are born equal. They all don't have similar glory.

The book offers the 3 common traits the great ones from diverse cultures and generations possessed that enabled them to become the best version of themselves. It guides you as you march forward to attain the highest level of greatness, get fulfilled in life, serve the world around you with world-class excellence, and have an impact that lasts long after you left this planet.

If you're a person who desires to pursue not any kind of greatness but true greatness that leads toward fulfillment; greatness based on serving others according to your purpose in life, your unique talent, and strengths, this book is written for you. 

Though deep inside we all know, consciously or unconsciously, that we're meant to be great, only some believed that they're greatness material and began their greatness journey by taking quantum actions. They trusted their highest self within and they have never been disappointed. Unfortunately, many of these courageous people pursued unfulfilling greatness while only a few actually attained the highest level of greatness during their lifetime.

Sadly, the overwhelming majority of humanity doesn't even want to talk about greatness at all. Those who dared to raise the subject and attempted to claim their birthright of greatness have been beaten down, belittled, and called names such as egotistical, narcissist, etc.

Of course, there're some egotistical and narcissistic individuals who wrongly think that they're the only greats undermining the greatness of others. You don't need to brag about what makes you great. Everybody else has also greatness within. If they only dig deeper, they'll find something that uniquely qualifies them to become the best version of themselves.

There are also noble individuals who pursued unsustaining and unfulfilling greatness and realized that they wasted their time, energy, and missed their destiny even if they climbed the wrong mountain and stood on top of it. At one point, they realized that they were on the wrong side of the fence, far away from manifesting the best version of themselves. They were bold enough to admit their errors and abandon the wrong ship to jumpship on the right one that leads toward the highest level of greatness- greatness that ends with fulfillment and a legacy that outlives them.

Wherever you may be right now, whether you have never begun your birthright of greatness journey yet or found yourself pursuing one of the unfulfilling and less glorious greatnesses, you too can start this rewarding journey right now. It isn't too late. In this book, you will read many stories of underdogs turned greats. You'll also appreciate those who made a shift from one of the lower levels of greatness toward the highest level of greatness.

You don't need to reinvent the wheel. You can learn from the life experience of the great ones before you. You just need to customize the learning to make it relevant for you and your generation.

In this book, you will learn the true definition of greatness that aligns with who you truly are- a human being created after the image of God; the five levels of greatness; examples under each level; and how you too can pursue the highest level of greatness: Purpose-oriented, vision-centered, and values-driven greatness.

The book is a light read where the author shares some conversations he stroke with people about their purpose, vision, and values. It is also filled with stories of diverse great ones from different cultures and generations. You'll also get some strategies and tactics you could apply so that you too may begin this rewarding journey toward manifesting your highest self inside out.

Author Message

Uncover the 3 common traits the great ones from diverse cultures possessed to manifest the best version of themselves and know that you too can attain the highest level of greatness like them in your own unique way.

Hi Friend,

Though every human being senses, at least occasionally and subconsciously, that they have greatness within, many don’t entertain the thought consciously and regularly. Even if many people deep inside desire to manifest the best version of themselves, only some take the initial step toward that end.

Sadly, among those who discovered the unlimited potential they carried within, only some did something about their discoveries right away. Most hesitated, waited for too long, while others played it safe.

Unfortunately, many fall short of taking massive actions among those who have acted. Few men and women of action thought, decided, and acted quantumly. Very few of these bold souls stay committed to maximizing their potential and attaining greatness in their own unique ways.

You must be among those who are committed.

Otherwise, you wouldn’t have picked this book with an outlandish title, The Highest Level of Greatness! Congratulations for being among the few who vowed to manifest their highest self before dying.

Achieving greatness is everyone’s birthright! It doesn’t matter who we are, where we’re from, or what we’ve achieved so far — we all are greatness material. Each soul emerged from eternity into time to manifest the greatness of its Creator.

We’re not just bodies. We have a mind. Besides, our inner self, the highest self in each of us, is spiritual. It transcends matter and mind. Unfortunately, many people are preoccupied with their bodies and minds.

Yes, we have come a long way in our evolution. We evolved mentally, and as a result, we’re in charge of this planet. We’re enjoying the civilization our ancestors never dreamed was possible. Once, we were in caves. Now, we dominate the jungle and conquer outer space.

It is impressive how far we have come. But, we are far from our destiny, which cannot be achieved without recognizing and tapping into our inner selves. It demands spiritual evolution by acknowledging and unchaining the highest (the spiritual) self from within.

We’re not here on earth to merely make ends meet. We’re born for a greater assignment than barely making it in life. We entered this universe at the right time and space for a bigger purpose than just surviving. Each of us is a sign and wonder for our fellow humans and other creations!

Please pause reading.

What did you feel as you read the above couple of paragraphs? Did they confirm what you’ve been entertaining within, or did they make you feel uncomfortable? Are you struggling to accept some of the truths mentioned above, thinking they don’t apply to your race, ethnicity, gender, or social class?

It is okay if you feel uneasy. You don’t need to believe everything I said, not yet. Just give me the benefit of the doubt and keep reading.

By the way, for many years, I had self-doubt until the truth set me free. I didn’t even know how others could put limits on me without my permission.

These disempowering beliefs that got into my mind lowered my bar. I had been thinking, imagining, and aspiring too little without even knowing it. The direct, indirect, and subtle conditioning happened since childhood and ran in the background without my conscious involvement.

The sources of this culturing were diverse. Some from near while others afar. Many of them didn’t have sinister intentions. Forget others; how can my family members and friends intentionally and consciously say or do anything that harms me, especially when I was a kid and vulnerable?

They did it thinking that it was beneficial to my own good. They were helpless and had been cultured themselves. They, too, were told they didn’t amount to anything, and they believed it. Thus, when they conditioned me to think, behave, and act like an underdog, they were trying to help me survive and be safe.

You might have also been told that you can’t become somebody great because of your color, ethnicity, gender, education, or social status. Some of these might still be running in the background and subconsciously, causing you to doubt yourself. You might have lowered your expectations without knowing that you don’t proactively think, imagine, and act to become your best self.

This thing runs deep and at a subconscious level. It leads your life by sitting in the driver’s seat without your conscious choice. Who in their right mind consciously decides to stay the same? Worse, who wants to live a life of mediocrity and insignificance? No one!

By the way, I wasn’t thinking like this initially. For instance, I didn’t see myself becoming one of my heroes and heroines in my own unique ways. Yes, I honored and celebrated them, but I placed a huge gulf between myself and them. I never stopped and acknowledged that I had a chance to become a hero for someone else if I was willing to pay my dues.

Without knowing, I put the great ones on a pedestal.
However, when I realized that there are great ones in every culture who manifested their best version during their lifetime, I changed forever. Exposed is powerful!

In this book, I’ll expose you to the stories of many underdogs who turned great from diverse cultures.

By the way, I’m not talking about celebrities. Becoming your best version may not necessarily attract celebrity status. For that matter, many truly great ones were servants and didn’t have time to be celebrated. They didn’t want to.

Actually, some of the greatest never got a chance to be celebrated during their lifetime. Paradoxically, some had been despised and rejected by their people and contemporaries. People far away and the following generations honored them posthumously.

The great ones you and I admire came from diverse races, traditions, professions, and socioeconomic backgrounds. I’m sure you may at least resonate with some of these great ones.

You may believe in many of my claims concerning the greatness of humanity, but you may not think that they apply to you. You may believe that you’ve got lots of disadvantages. It may look like the cards are stacked against
you. You may think your case is different and an exception. It may feel like there is no way you could change your fate on earth.

I hear you. I was there. I completely understand what might be going on with you. You’ll believe me when you read my underdog story in this book. You will see how my journey began from a very lowly place, one of the poorest villages in Ethiopia.

When I learned that the true greats were ordinary before they stepped into their greatness, I dropped my lame excuses. When I realized that they, too, were conditioned and had low self-esteem before they got free, I was encouraged to leave my small world of pitifulness. I left my little protective shell.

Knowing that they were self-made, carved their own unique path, and walked on a distinct path, also made me believe that I had a chance. I could clearly see that they weren’t just lucky or special. No one handed them greatness. They paid their dues. They earned it the hard way. And thus, I challenged myself, and in this book, I’m asking you to do the same.

Yes, their journey wasn’t cheap, easy, or smooth. They were humans like everyone else. They had doubts, fears, and faced all kinds of odds, setbacks, and disappointments. Their journeys weren’t like walking on the red carpet.

Most were ordinary underdogs before they stepped into their greatness. Some were in worse conditions than where I was in life.

Every great person in history didn’t start great. After all, we all must start somewhere. All the great ones you admire aren’t exceptional. They were once in the same spot as you’re in right now.

Like I did, you may put the great ones you admire on a pedestal, thinking that they’re special, but you’re not. If you think you’re doing a favor to your role models by creating a gulf between you and them, you’re wrong. Read their biographies. True greats want to see their followers become and perform better than they did.

In this book, my goal is to remind you about your royalty. Then I’ll share with you the three common traits that the greatest from various cultures and industries shared in order to become the best version of themselves. I hope you will also begin this rewarding journey right away and follow their examples to manifest your highest self.

Did you notice? In the above paragraph, I intentionally said to ‘remind’ you. Your inner self already knows about its royalty. My job in this book is to conspire with your true self within to awaken your outer self, which has been cultured to tone down the inner voice.

This is high time to drop and disown the limitations yourself and others around you placed since childhood. This is about time to pursue the highest level of greatness. You might have already recognized that I’m not here advocating for any kind of greatness.

All greatness isn’t the same. A greatness that comes from luck, inheritance, or sheer willpower isn’t very fulfilling. Soon enough, you’ll find yourself seeking more when your good luck dries up, your initial fortune erodes, as you age and your vigor declines. Greatness achieved through brute force or corruption isn’t sustainable at all.

You had already taken the journey towards greatness, if not before, when you picked this book. My job now is to show you the best way to keep your greatness going until you achieve the Highest Level of Greatness — that sustains and outlasts even after you’re long gone from this planet!

Wherever you may be right now in life, start this worthwhile journey to become the best version of yourself. Stay on track and keep your eyes on the prize by:
• Recognizing the framework of the highest level of greatness: Use this straightforward model to help you understand the different levels of greatness and how to choose the highest form of greatness.
• Understanding the importance of purpose and how to find yours: Know exactly what is and isn’t purpose, find yours, and use that as a basis to find direction in life!
