If you don’t know what your great work is, do the work in front of you greatly and it will lead you to your great work.
We know James Earl Jones as the voice of Mufasa in The Lion King, Darth Vader in Star Wars, and as the voice of CNN. Do you know that he had a severe speech impediment? He stuttered so badly that at age five he stopped speaking altogether for the next eight years.
One teacher changed his life. Luckily for all of us, the teacher questioned him about a poem that he wrote, saying, “This is a good poem. In fact, it is so good, I don’t think you wrote it. To prove that you did, you must stand in front of the class and recite it by memory.”
James Earl Jones got through it. He didn’t give up. Both the teacher and the student did their work greatly. Whatever work YOU do, do it greatly. You’ll shine like an example, lighting the way for others. – Shar McBee
