Greatness

scottgroves-flemingtonI was just invited to a “lay it all on” day at the races for Oaks Day during Melbourne Cup week in Melbourne when I had an insight. It was alcohol induced, but an insight nonetheless.

A cool statue of Makybe Diva is now immortalised on the lawns on Flemington so I stopped to grab a pic. Standing next to this amazing creature, you can’t help but be in awe of her greatness. The greatest ever winning Melbourne Cup horse!!!

Where am I going with this…

If you want to be inspired, if you want greater results in your life – you need to hang out with winners.

Greatness rubs off on people. Just being around a statue, a person, a location where great battles were won, allows your mind to visualise and absorb what it must have felt like.

It’s a bit like hanging around a great mentor who influences the way you think and feel just by being around them.

“If you stand in the presence of greatness, you are one step closer to greatness.”
