Happy President's Day to you all! Today in the United States, we celebrate this day in honor of all US Presidents. (For more on President's Day, please visit here.)

In honor of today, I decided to create this new wallpaper called, "Greatness", making it my second for this year and 134th wallpaper for the site overall.

I believe men who become "great" in life already have a type of greatness within them. I'm not talking about just famous men, or wealthy men. The type of men I'm describing are men with real character and integrity. The men depicted here on Mount Rushmore, were chosen because each one contributed greatly to America, and helped this nation become better before they left their office as President.

They each had a definiteness of purpose to lead America, and helped this country to grow great itself. They each had to rise amidst many challenges and problems to either get this country started, or keep it going and not let it crumble.

I strongly believe though that they all knew that they could be great leaders first, before they went out into the world and become great to the public. They first had to grow into their "greatness" on the inside. They were great men who stood up for their beliefs and values, and knew that corruption, immorality, and injustice could not be tolerated if this country were to become great. Not that everything was perfect with America, for it was a constant work in progress. But these men kept this country growing closer to greatness itself than farther away.

In closing, I'd like to leave you with another great quote on greatness. It's by Fernando Flores who said, "Great work is done by people who are not afraid to be great." Begin to believe that greatness lies within you. You need to own that truth. Then, set out to do something that will make a difference.

We all have at least one gift or talent that can be nourished that can lead to greatness. Let your path to greatness begin today!
