Greatness has a cost, and it reschedules your plans. It puts everything you love on hold, and it sets you up to be misunderstood by many.
Greatness takes your mind, your spirit, and your soul. When you let people down, what do you do? Do you sulk or seek pity or ask questions like “Why me?” The only way to stand out and eventually become great is to stay hungry.
Make that greatness that you are seeking the reason why you are alive. If you have a reason to pursue greatness, you are going to chase it, and someday, you will get it.
