What makes people great in the world?

I think great persons are born for others. They never think for only their life. They struggle hard for the well-being of others. Thus they become great and remain alive forever even after their death.

I think what makes people great is caring for others and not just themselves. But yes people do need to care for themselves also to have the strength and willpower to care for others.

@Priyanka1990 @Arpita1996 The best focus is 'the goodness of the one we all serve.' We care for each other AND ourselves because that is how we can be sure to give the BEST service to 'the one we all serve.'

Great people are those who are selfless and who care about others. They want to achieve something extra ordinary for the folks.

It does take hard work to become great and you have to be a people person. However we should also consider not only great people but those who are talented in different ways such as musicians, actors and such because through their talent they leave their songs and movies behind and thus become immortal while great people are known if they are mentioned and remembered but not by everyone because they are not remembered every day.

Great people are those who think of others. They are the ones who do great things not only for themselves but for other individuals too..

That's ONE of the secrets. The big one (they even call it "the secret behind The Secret") is something-like 'spend time with successful people (or Have successful friends), and you'll start to share in their success!'
Abraham - via Esther Hicks - explains why there are two versions of "The Secret" DVD and why Abraham is no longer in the video. Recorded live at a 2007 Abrah...
