The following passage is taken from "The Notebook" by Nicholas Sparks. My question is about the expression "traits that inspired others to greatness." Does this mean the girl has the traits that make others want to achieve greatness in something?

"He’d seen beautiful women before, women who caught his eye, but to his mind they usually lacked the traits he found most desirable. Traits like intelligence, confidence, strength of spirit, passion, traits that inspired others to greatness, traits he aspired to himself."
