How Do You Achieve Greatness With Little Effort?

From Denny: Have you ever noticed how human nature does not change over the centuries? You have only to read what writer Mark Twain said 100 years ago to realize it still holds true.

All the success gurus and positive thinkers of today are recycling truisms of the past because there is little institutional memory from generation to generation. What memory we do have of what humanity has managed to figure out as truth is deposited in our literature from ancient history to today.

“Keep away from small people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” - Mark Twain
