The concept of greatness is an idea that courts the desire of many but only a few painstakingly dare to tread on that path. What is even more unique in climbing the ladder of greatness is when out of the goodness of your heart and your love for humanity, you labour tirelessly to ensure that your very existence is of great benefit to men and in return, greatness comes knocking on your door.
