I don’t know what gifts God built into your unique and personal design. I’m not sure what talents you may have buried and need to unearth. But I am positive they exist.
Yesterday, I posted a short story on my author/speaker/coach Facebook fan page. I beg you, don’t be a Mr. Jones.
Every baby born on this Earth, including you and me, is made on purpose. We exist for a specific reason. Part of the adventure of living is to discover what we’re supposed to do, and to go after it with everything within us. Our talents are never just about us, they are more about glorifying God and helping others, but by doing so, we get a special gift money can’t buy — a feeling that gives you a high bigger than any drug on the planet.
I came very close to not asking for or accepting the gifts God built into me before my birth. I nearly missed the amazing things happening in my life today by not taking courage when the fears were strong.
I almost let my own insecurities drown out the passionate whisper of my call.
Thankfully, my life didn’t pass me by without investing myself fully into the dreams God placed into my heart. I’m so grateful I don’t have to die wondering, What if. I know what might be possible if I try — because I did. And it’s still a huge surprise to me how much I’m succeeding. I discounted the worth God says I have.
Today, my past no longer defines me.
I now believe what God says, and refuse to listen to my own fears and naysayers. This brings me to you, because I care. If I can help even one person take courage to do what seems impossible, to pursue their dreams with everything within them, to do the hard work on the days when they feel like giving up, then my life has meaning. So I ask you.
Is there a gift you’ve left unopened? Is there a gnawing in your gut to do something that terrifies you? Are you afraid of failing, or maybe…that you might succeed?
If you answered yes to any of my questions, or similar ones ringing in your mind, then I challenge you.
Do one thing today, take one tiny step, toward finding out, what if. What’s the worst thing that will happen? Even failure is a stepping stone to your next success. But what if, you could really shine?
