Yes. Are you living at your best? Is the life you are living the best you could have lived? Are the results you’ve achieved the best possible for you? Is what you are doing now the best you could have done? Think about this for a second. I am not saying you should compare yourself to others, and what life they are living. I mean, compared to your potentials, your talents, your capabilities, your education, are you living your best life?
The truth is, so many of us are not living at our best. Instead, we settle and become comfortable with the level we are “because we are afraid to climb the mountains of life. The steepness and ruggedness discourages us, so we stay in the midst of the valley and never learn the mystery of the hills. We do not know what is lost by our self-indulgence, what glory awaits if we only have the courage to climb, or what blessings we will find if we will only ascend the mountains.”
Folks we should never be content with mediocrity when greatness is possible. Many of us are content to live a life of perpetual struggle when it is possible to live at our best. We exist, yet we don’t truly live. Many of us are surviving, when we should be thriving. We allow the gift of God in us to lie idle within us. You see, we are all endowed with the capacity for greatness. Perhaps you have just not taken the time to discover what your personal gifts are and then honed them to the level where you are considered brilliant.
Are you living at your best? If not, you are not only doing yourself and the world a great disservice, and all those within it who could benefit from your unique talents, a disservice. Remember, “The weakest among us has a gift, however seemingly trivial, which is peculiar to him and which worthily used will be a gift also to his race.” Even God desires that we have an abundance of all things in life. So throw away your laziness, sluggishness, coldness, or whatever is interfering with your dreams. Live your greatest life!
