“Somehow we’ve come to believe that greatness is reserved for the chosen few, for the superstars. The truth is greatness is for all of us. This is not about lowering expectations, it’s about raising them for every last one of us. Because greatness is not in one special place, and it is not in one special person. Greatness is wherever somebody is trying to find it.”

Inspired yet? If not, try Nike’s video where those words appear. Or just watch any one of the highlights of athletes from around the world competing during the 2012 Olympics.

On August 12, Nike is asking people to make the day the most active day ever.

So, I laced up my sneakers this afternoon and logged a couple miles with Nike+. While running and thinking about Nike’s statement on finding greatness one thing kept coming back to me over and over again, “my greatness is within.”

Where do you find your greatness?
