Take Action.
Go Be Great is…


…a movement, a reminder that we are all created for greatness

We are a collection of inspired individuals who choose to overcome adversity with action. A chance to find purpose and to share that purpose in order to create a community of supportive and encouraging difference-makers. We are choosing determination over acceptance. Growth over failure. Perseverance over defeat. We’re leaning on those around us and being a shoulder to lean on. Go Be Great is knowing when to lead and when to learn.

  • Thank you for the “Go Be Great” organization and award.  We are honored to be this year’s recipient and are excited to continue doing great things with your inspiration…We will be giving cards to each athlete to pass on after doing a random act of kindness. We want our community to be flooded with acts of kindness and these cards.  If we start small, with just us, hopefully it will take off and continue to grow through all avenues.

  • #GoBeGreat means so many things but for me the most important is Servant Leadership and truly leading my example in your personal and professional life. It is so easy to say, but so hard to do and I appreciate this #GBG page to help with those reminders!!

  • To me #GoBeGreat means make a difference. Be kind, supportive and loving. A kind word or smile can make a huge difference for someone going through a hard time. Be nice.

  • Can you imagine what the world would look like if we all used that for our daily launch into life? As I share with my kids, they get to do something great every single day and they get to be the light in someone’s or something’s darkness! I hope their lights continue to shine and I can’t wait to see how they get to “Go Be Great” in their future!

  • For me, living out #GoBeGreat means looking out for the interests of others and not just yourself

    Leigh Ann Sheets
  • Three simple words- Live To Give! Our time, a smile, pure kindness and so much more can change someone’s day and life!

  • To me it means sharing your strengths/gifts with others and learning from their God given strengths/gifts. Working together toward the goal and always supporting others.
