the status obtained when an individual or individuals contribute to an organization, team, or purpose that is greater than themselves. It is defined by individual deeds as well as deeds as a whole. Greatness is always striving to be better, no matter what level of excellence you obtain. It is not just about being the best, it also about bringing out the best in those around you. i.e. taking time to give back and serve your community and impact the world.
