On the day that our creator made us, he wanted to leave us with a very special gift. He pondered for long hours on where to put it – he wanted us to find it, but not before we were ready. Finally, he chose to hide it where we would least think of looking for it, and you’ll never guess where that was…
He placed it carefully inside of us… Finding it would become our journey and using it would become our purpose.
Each one of us has many gifts, but if you search very closely you have one that is exceptionally brilliant. If you can identify that gift within yourself and play to it – you will find fulfilment. If you can identify it in your people and help them play to theirs – you can change their lives too.
What were you really good at growing up?
What talents have people pointed out to you – especially people close to you?
What signs have you been ignoring – playing them down or afraid to say out loud, “I freaking love doing this! When I do this…time slows down and melts away!”
When you align what you do with who you are – everything is easier – partly because of what you are doing, but also because of what you’re not doing, that no longer causes you to stress.
