Daily Wisdom: Fill Your Own Place

We often think that if we had that person’s means or that person’s ability or that man’s opportunity, we could do something worth doing; but, as we are, there is no possibility of us doing anything great.

Yet God does not want us to fill any other man’s place, or to do any other man’s work. God wants us to improve our own opportunity with the possessions and the powers that He has given us. It is very important if you must truly live, to do the best you can with what you have, where you are.

You are not expected to do more than this, nor do you have the right to do any less. One of the costliest mistakes people make is to think that success is as a result of genius or some special talent, or magic – something or talent they don’t possess in them. That is wrong thinking that you must purge out from your mind.

Success in anything in life is generally due to holding one, persistently trying hard until you succeed. Your success today begins with you making a decision, to do something, anything and working on it long enough. But it starts with a decision from you. The decision that nothing can overrule, the grip that nothing can detach, will bring success.

Live your greatest life!

Every one of us has a gift which is distinctively ours. And we all have a responsibility to discover, develop and use our individual gifts. The fact that your gift isn’t as loud as that of others doesn’t make it less valuable and impactful. You also do not need to have many talents and the ability to do many different things to be successful but rather your success is determined by your ability to make practical use of your one great talent given to you by God.

Don’t Seek Recognition. Give Value

Maybe this is the case with you; you are unhappy and dissatisfied with yourself and your achievements. You look at yourself and become sad because you aren’t a genius; you were born without any special talents; you are just ordinary; no rich family; no good education. Mediocrity seems to be the measure of your existence. None of your days are note- worthy, except for their sameness and lack of zest. In spite of what your life may look like right now, don’t give up. Don’t be frustrated.

I used to think so about my life too. Nothing about me seem great, I always wondered what impact my life was making. If I was touching any life at all with my messages; if people were ever listening to me. I look at the great names out there inspiring people, the blogs with thousands of followers and readers, the authors whose books have impacted several generations, and I shrink.

I kept going this way until someone mentioned this to me; “John the Baptist never performed a miracle, but Jesus said of him, “Among those born of women there is no one greater” Continue reading Don’t Seek Recognition. Give Value
