Just Run Your Own Race…
Every point made last week is geared around the fact that money, fame, power and all other things people desperately long for, will not bring about fulfillment in life, in the absence of self discovery. This is because you have to run your own race to earn ‘the prize’. The prize here is fulfillment, inner peace, satisfaction; the kind that will gradually flow to the one who has discovered self. This is where true success comes in. Why do you think some are drunk in wealth, yet thirsty of wealth. If only money brings joy, the richest will be the happiest in the world. Leave the trend! Quit chasing the paper-money. Simply find the hue in you and every other thing will blend. See, you may not need papers to colour, cause life is made up of so many options, but you sure need colours to paint and draw out the future you desire. At this stage, you don’t just make wealth; you become them. Nothing brings fulfilment like living your purpose. You can’t eat crumbs when you are the cake; cause cakes don’t live crumbs they leave them. Being a solution provider, a world changer- This is God’s plan for you- Step into it! He’s your manufacturer; seek for HIS guidance and act on it. A wise man once said “Life is not just about making a living, it is more vital to live your making”. Self discovery is the key to unlocking the closed doors life poses at us as obstacles.
Purpose! Yes! That’s the word!! Self discovery is finding your purpose here on earth. As earlier stated, you are not born empty! The manufacturer deposits contents in a product for its usefulness. We are all the products of creation. Our creator deposited something unique within each of us. These deposits are the answers to the many unanswered questions in our world today. In other words, nobody is useless. The only difference between those who live and those who merely exist is self discovery.
Dig deep to find you. You’re priceless. Like gold you can’t easily be found on the ‘surface’; so you have to search deeply within to find the real you.
However, note this- You ain’t gold. Gold isn’t even close to who you are; it’s just a minute cue to the hue in you. You are PRICELESS. Go DISCOVER YOU!
What gives you joy unspeakable? What gives you satisfaction? What do you do with ease in peace? Fine, anything can give you happiness but what gives you fulfillment?
The Stranger The Better!
It may not be something popular. The more unpopular, the better! The world is filled with so many popular things. A lot of people are busy running within the usual circles. Life is too short too keep chasing other people’s dreams; running on a spot. Sure! Collaboration is allowed cause we all need each other but that doesn’t negate the fact that we all as individuals have our race to run. Almost everyone wants to follow the usual trend, rendering their individual gifts decayed. We have to understand that the ‘in thing’ may not always bring you out, because it’s already clogged up by many.
Never be scared to ‘bring it on’. when you discover that what lies within you appear strange or unpopular, get excited! Cause the world isn’t in need of what she has already, but what she doesn’t. The world is desperately in need of the seeds to the fruit it lacks. You’ll definitely thrive within the boundaries of your uniqueness
Bill Newman rightly said “Get excited about life- Live life with a passion. Learn to live life to the full, savouring every moment. People without passion have no real zeal for living. They’re only a dormant force. Living an exciting passionate life fuels the fire , the desire and the dynamic motivation behind every worthwhile purpose. You’ve got to learn to avoid worrying; so climb mountains, walk more sunsets, cry when someone touches your heart and learn to laugh”.
It’s a new week; a new working day.
