This quote, by Napoleon Hill, is not saying we don’t attempt to do great things. However, sometimes we may not have the opportunity to do great things. During those situations, it’s tempting to not do anything at all–just because we can’t do the great things we aspire. However, this quote encourages us to do what we can and to try to do them in a great way or as best as we can. And when we continue doing small things in a great way, they may eventually become great things.
