We’ve all been giving gifts and abilities, thoughts and ideas. We’ve all been put here with a purpose.
But too many people just kind of go through life coasting along. Not believing they really have anything of significance to offer.
They think that they’re somehow second class. That those who are more successful have been given a greater purpose. There was a time I thought this way too.
But then I realized something interesting.
The more successful people who seemed more confident and happy – thought differently than me. They thought and, more importantly, believed they had something to offer.
When I first started thinking this way too, I soon found out that it wasn’t easy. It was actually down right scary! It’s so much easier to coast and not step up and put ourselves out there.
But if we coast and don’t put ourselves out there, we’re actually being selfish and irresponsible. We’re giving into fear and not offering our best to the world.
It’s time we step up to the plate and risk believing that we too (yep, that means you too!) have something of significance to offer. (tweet that) It’s time we live out the purpose for which we have been created. It’s time we own it.
