Yes by thinking and acting as told by God.<br />
Because true greatness is not a gift of men,<br />
but it is self-realization of our own life as<br />
the greater world - yes a spiritual reality that<br />
encompasses all universes.<br />
Now we can look for the commands of God<br />
through the Holy Books available on the Internet.<br />
I have placed some links to these Books on my<br />
pukirahe blog at wordpress.com.
If by thinking you are referring to meditation and self-reflection, the answer is YES. One cannot fully attain greatness at anything unless he or she masters the self. An interesting thing about this is that the more know yourself, the more your definition of "greatness" changes.
I would say "Greatness" is a broad term; for example, most people recognise a great feat by the amount of recognition it gains from a large audience: so you could be the greatest thinker on earth but not have the social skills/motivation to get a book published around the globe and therefore never be recognised as a "great" thinker/writer. Also depends on the area of thinking and experience: it's said that you need around 10 years/10000 hours experience in a given field to master it; expertise could be considered a requirement for greatness as it gives you the relative concepts/knowledge ba<x>se to expand the limits of human conception. Finally, I believe luck can be a very important factor, the people you meet and the connections you make as well as the learning and lifestyle you receive could well make the difference between going out as a no-one or a someone.<br />
As people say: "Try your best and never give up!".

In your mind, yes.
IMHO - No. However, learning to become an ob<x>jective observer of our thoughts does have real potential ;-)
Yes It usulaay is.
If it could then i must be the greatest person ever... im not so no, the thinking needs to have an outcome otherwise its just thinkin about stuff.
You'd only have 50% of the goal achieved.
