“Believe in your infinite potential. Your only limitations are those you set upon yourself.”―Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
All of us have innate talents that we are blessed with. Some folks are good with music. Some folks are good at writing. Some folks are good at mechanics. Some folks are good with learning new things.
Each of us has a unique skill set that we are blessed with. Each of us has a unique place in the world, fulfilling some role we were put here to accomplish. Some are meant to be mothers and fathers. Some are meant to be captains of industry. Some are meant to explain the world to others. Some are meant to spread the word of God.
Regardless of your calling, use these talents. They are yours. We all have that special something that makes us unique in the world. We gravitate towards the things we are good at and are meant to use in this lifetime.
Today, take a moment to contemplate what you like doing. Take a moment to evaluate your skill set. How can you use these tools to be the best you?
It is so easy to make excuses. It is so easy to think you are not good enough. It is so easy to procrastinate.
If you’ve always wanted to do something, do it. Do that thing. Even if you just take a moment to do a little towards mastery, you’ll be doing more than you are doing now. Think about where you want to be and set a goal to get there. You may pursue that goal your whole life. The key is in the doing. Get out there. Do something, anything to move the needle forward.
You want to learn a new language? Get a language app and start working through these things. You want to learn a new technology? Find online educational resources or tutorials and begin learning that new technology.
Whatever you want to learn or develop is available to you on YouTube, numerous online schools, and websites that hold the secrets to mastering what you are striving for?
Keep your goals in mind daily. Keep visualizing what your life will be like when you attain your new goal. Keep moving forward. Take a step each day. You can’t fail if you keep moving forward to your finish line. You can only fail if you fail to act.
Each of us possesses God-given talents and skills. God has also given us the ability to learn, imagine, create, and make decisions. Use your talents and get moving. Stop wasting time dreaming about doing the things you want to do and DO THEM! You are the only obstacle. No one is out to get you. No one is out to stop you. Only you can stop you.
Imagine a life where you a pursuing your goals, attaining your objectives, doing that new thing. Imagine how you can inspire others with your example. Be the light for others. Demonstrate to other people that anything is possible. You’ll be amazed at the results.
As we approach the new year, take some time to really figure out what you want to do with yourself. Imagine what you would do if there were no obstacles. Imagine what you could do if there were no barriers. That is what a well-lived life is made of.
Until next time…
