How can you function in your passion if you are not doing what it is you know that you are meant to do? I cannot place a cap on what I have to give just because someone may feel intimidated by my skill or diverse way of thinking. I cannot be kept in a box and neither can you. Yes, you may surprise some by what you know and how much you can do; it doesn’t mean that you know everything but it means you are not meant to be like everyone else. The world is full of repeats; there’s an entire world of people that need the potential you have to offer. Don’t shy away from who you are or your talent because someone may feel outshined or threatened that you are good enough. Guess what? You are good enough. That’s not being prideful, that’s comprehending that “greater is he that is in you, than he that is in this world.”
Get Comfortable Winning
Become comfortable functioning in your purpose because that talent that you have is not going anywhere. We were all born with a gift and if God gave you the will, he will make a way. Don’t stop what you are doing because you feel others don’t accept you or support you. Because they don’t accept you or support you let’s you know that you are doing something great. Don’t back down. Don’t shy away, keep going! But do “keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too can become great. “ -Mark Twain
What’s the Plan?
What you are reaching to attain won’t always come easy. If it does come easy, how rewarding could it be? If you have a goal that you are targeting, first “write the vision, and make it plain.” “In a study conducted by Prof. Gail Matthews, a psychologist from the Dominican University of California, it was revealed that those who commit their goal-setting on paper actually achieved more compared to those who were simply asked to think of what they wanted to accomplish in life.” -Kathy Kyle Pray over the goals that you have written down. Believe in the vision that was put in your heart. No one else can believe it for you!
When I first started out writing I knew that it wouldn’t be easy but I knew that it would be worth it because its what I enjoy doing. My writing isn’t for me, it’s for my readers. My writing isn’t about me, it’s about delivering a message to provide perspective, encouragement, motivation, to cause you to think differently, to give you the awareness that it’s always good to self-reflect and to identify with some of the very things that we as people experience on a day to day basis.
Surround yourself with people who are true to themselves and then you can expect them to be more easily true to you.True advocates come from those that are not trying to gain their own egotistical attention by giving you a pat on the back as if they are doing you a favor. You already have the favor of God. True advocates are consistent and genuine in their appreciation of your work. Who do you have advocating for you in your life?
Know this, you have what it take. Continue to work in your purpose intentionally and joyfully. Continue to be bold and watch the lives that are impacted by you simply because, you are being just who you are.
The world is waiting. Be blessed my friends.
