May 08, 2023


What is your greatest accomplishment?

This question can be used to determine where someone is on the success scale. If you can’t answer the question, does it mean you are a loser? Of course not. However, it may be a sign that you are not as great as you think you are.

In this article, I am going to show you how to identify individual greatness. As your life script is being written, you will want to think very seriously about any level of significance you have achieved. If you do not yet have that spark of greatness, you are in luck because there is still time to get on a path to excellence.

Again, I want to ask, "What is your greatest accomplishment?"

Winners can quickly come up with an answer to this question. Some may take a second or two if they have a lot of achievements. But if you find yourself taking a while to come up with an answer to this simple question, consider using it as a queue to start doing things with purpose. It should also be noted that there are varying levels of accomplishment. It is highly individualized and can only be defined by you.

Recently, I talked about why everything you do has to count for something. The presentation was intended for business owners. But the message can also be applied to non-entrepreneurial scenarios as well. Check this out:

In 2018, my business crossed the 20-year mark. At the time, it did not seem like I had been in business that long. But when I thought back to where I started in a military dorm room in 1998, I realized in that span of time this powerful machine I created had sold retail products to a number of high-profile organizations. From Amazon to Blue Cross Blue Shield. From Nike to Pepsico. From Circ du Soleil to all branches of the United States military. Virtually everyone has been a customer over the years. I believe that having such an expansive customer base set me apart from other successful businesses where they tend to sell within specific industries. My business was able to sell across multiple industries.

When I started, I never imagined this level of business success. So for me, my greatest accomplishment was what I built. But career defining moments are important because you do not ever want to look back and have regrets about what could have been. So again, "What is your greatest accomplishment?" You should be able to quickly answer this question. Winners can do it. But if you struggle to come up with an answer, it’s time to step it up and go out and do something great. From now on, try to do things with purpose; with intention. Because you can always rewrite your life script.
