Expect Greatness

"Expect Greatness" has been one of my favorite mottos to live by. In High School, while playing football, I put that on the front of my playband. Not to tell everyone else to expect that just from me, but to tell myself that it is my job to expect greatness from my teammates, my coaches, and especially the other team.

Since I have become a missionary, I have been able to relate much of my 'sport smarts' from the playing field to the missionary field. This motto, "Expect Greatness", has been something I have learned a gospel tie to.

We can expect greatness in every aspect of our lives. We first must develop the HOPE that it can happen, then work our tails off to make it happen. That is the FAITH required for greatness a.k.a. miracles.
       'And Christ hath said: If ye will have faith in me ye shall have power to do whatsoever thing is expedient in me.'            Moroni 10:33

Anything we want to accomplish, that is part of God's will, we can do. We just must expect it, then work at it. God will sustain the effort, and the miracle will be brought to pass. Let us 'Expect Greatness' in all that we do, so God may be glorified in our works (see Matt. 5:16)

God bless you all, I Expect Greatness from you.

I like that you mentioned you can expect greatness from the other team. Sometimes we forget that the harder we are trying, Satan will be working harder too. Just like the Nephites and Lamanites in the Book of Mormon- the Nephites would have several lines of defense (walls, ditches, breastworks, etc) AND they made weapons and armor. (See Alma Chapter 53) They didn't just hand out helmets and call it good. Thanks for the reminder to Expect Greatness.
