With all the buzz about the movie: Alexander the Great, I thought you might want to read how Alexander actually became Great...


The year is 331 b.c. Alexander is still to become "Alexander the great." Alexander has to fight a war against the king of Persia - Darius.

The war is very unbalanced and tilted in the favour of the Persian king Darius. Alexander's army is outnumbered 20:1 in the battle against Darius. Furthermore, the Persian army is better equiped too. They have chariots and fancy weaponary.

Alexander realizes that it would be very hard to win against the Persian army. There is no way that Alexander could take on the might of Darius' forces. So Alexander gives just one simple order to his soldiers: KILL DARIUS.

Every soldier in Alexanders force has one clear mission, one clear target: Darius. They go after that one target in full force when the war beguns.
Their focus takes the Persian wing that protects Darius by surprise and Darius soon realizes what Alexander is upto. He flees to save his life. Seeing their commander and king run away, the other generals and soldiers flee too. And Alexander, with poor equipment and outnumbered soldiers, wins against the mighty Persians.

Alexander becomes "Alexander the great."

Action summary:
  • You too can become great. Greatness lies within you. The best and the quickest way to become more successful is to focus on your one main problem. Focus on your "Darius." When your main problem is solved, you will find that the other minor problems you had took care of themselves or are not a problem anymore!

  • "Gather in your resources, rally all your faculties, marshal all your energies, focus all your capacities upon mastery of one field of endeavor" - John Haggai.
