If our potential is off the chart, whomever we are, we need to let go of our impediments, real or imagined. One example is Moses. Yes THE Moses…. Did you know he was physically frail and spoke with a lisp? But he was called by God to greatness. God has called each of us to do the same.
Greatness is not reserved for the great!
THE GREAT ARE SIMPLY THOSE WHO HAVE RISEN TO MEET THEIR DESTINY.
Everyone alive has a destiny infinitely richer than they know.
Imagine Thomas Edison giving up as an inventor and deciding to become a banker. He could have lived a good life, maybe even given money generously to help others build there dream home, and gone to church every Sunday. But he wouldn’t have fulfilled his greatness in helping others. Did you know he didn’t give up after failing 200 times trying to invent the light bulb? This is what he said – He found 200 ways NOT to invent the light bulb.
Some of you may not know Dr. Jonas Salk. You will in a minute. Let’s imagine Dr. Salk a successful businessman, a generous citizen, and a wonderful father, but never going into a lab. What may have seemed a good life would have truly been tragic, the pain and suffering he was meant to remove from the world never having been achieved. Dr. Salk was the inventor of the polio vaccine.
Thinking of Edison and Dr. Salk. When they died and went to heaven, standing before God, and God clearly shows them all the things they could have achieved, everything they should have done, but didn’t because they chose a different path. Can you imagine the grief, the guilt they would feel at the moment?
All of us are meant for something Great. So here is the measurement you need to know – Where am I today, not in reference to others, but in reference to myself? Where am I on the road to my full potential, to my greatness?
Love and Passion,
