5 Differences between Great People and Average People


Great v/s Average

Great people are not born great; they are made great by some of their qualities which is not often found in most ordinary people in the world. It’s said that more than 50% of the world’s wealth will be owned by around 1% of the people by 2016. Who are these 1% people and what do they have that makes them great? What do they have that differentiates them from the rest? We will have a closer look at some of the qualities that define greatness.


Strong Values

Greatness is a by-product of strong ethics and values. It is more often the passion and values that drives them in life and not money. Money is something that is bound to follow if you are good at what you do and if you are doing it ethically. Mr Narayan Murthy of Infosys is a great example of ethics and values.



Often great leaders pay attention to the journey more than the destination. It is believed that if people focus more on the end result then they might do all it takes to achieve that and that sometimes can be dangerous because people do tend to take wrong path as a shortcut for success. Great people have always paid more attention to the journey.



They achieve success because they believed they can. Most of us are surrounded by so much negativity that we don’t need anyone else to stop us from doing something great – we do it ourselves. Power of belief is what can keep us going to pursue our dream and can take us to amazing heights.


Ready to help

Those who have achieved it all are never afraid of their competition. Often great people are willing to help other businesses/enterprises/organizations, even if they fall under their competition zone. They have always kept the gate of knowledge open and have allowed the world to learn from them and help others.


Let your Actions speak

Have you ever seen Sachin Tendulkar being involved in a brawl on the pitch? Have you ever seen Bill Gates proclaiming how great he is? Have you ever heard Lata Mangeshkar telling that she is India’s greatest singer? – No. It’s a very important lesson for us to let our actions speak louder than our words. If we are good at something we must strive hard to be the best in it – and the world will automatically come to know.
