What inspires people toward greatness? Maybe it's just people doing what they've
discovered they love; something they have found that they do well.
If you ask what stirs people toward the excellence of purpose, I think you have only to
look at their ideals. Ideals can easily become guideposts.
Joesph Campbell said that by following our bliss, doors would open! It was,
he said, as tho there were “unseen helping hands” guiding us.
Ideals can engineer wonderful achievement and drive determination. They can
liberate enthusiasm. They help us toward the limitlessness of our potential. In the
end, I believe that the driving thought behind our standards and goals do
become their own realization. Simply put, our ideals become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
