Your Talent, Your Champions

In the race of destiny, your education can only take you to certain level but, it is your talent that makes you stand out in any chosen field. Always remember, everything you ever need to emerge as a champion is already in you. All you need is, look inward and discover them. Consider the following people who turn their talent plus into a champion:

Using his hand
Michael Jordan emerge as a star using his hands (basket ball)
Using their legs
The world most noted best players such as Ronaldo and Messi utilize their legs (football)
Through their mouth
Great musicians like R. Kelly and many others make use of their voice to become a champion
Using their brain
Bill Gates and many other world inventors make use of their brain thereby adding value to humanity

Are you aspiring to be a champion? What is your talent like? If you can’t use your brain, use your voice. If you can’t use your voice, use your hand. If you can’t use your hand, use your leg. If you can’t use your leg, just take step and keep moving until you achieve your dreams. Although, there is always a little beginning but don’t give up until you become a champion.

How do you know your talent or passion?
In his book, “Talent Is Not Enough” John Maxwell suggests the following ways to discover your talent:
• What do you dream about?
• What do you cry about?
• What do you sing about?

In addition, what are those things that bring fulfillment to you when you do them? What are the things you freely do even if there is no financial attachment?
According to John Maxwell, your answer to above questions can help you discover your passion and talent. Therefore, if you already have a talent keep on trying until you succeed. But if you don’t, never give up hope until you discover yours. Have a blessed day.


Having A Purpose And Making It Happen

It is one thing to have a dream yet; it is another thing to make it happen. Our world does not recognize how much you have dreamed, or imagined rather; your ability to turn your dream into a reality. In this article or series, I would suggest 7 ways to help you accomplish your purpose in life.

First Series: Your Purpose

The word purpose is a very familiar word that we use daily that’s in school, in business and in other areas of our lives. According to the-free-dictionary:

Purpose can be defined as the reason for which anything is done, created, or exist. For example:
• The purpose of the new resort is to attract more tourist
• The purpose of a car is to enhance our mobility

Therefore, having heard about the word purpose or maybe you came across it somewhere,
what does it mean to you personally?
In my view, the word purpose begins when a man or woman discover who they are, and what they are destiny to be. Meaning…..
• The problems you are called to solve
• The solution you are meant to provide
• Most of all, the values you are adding to humanity thereby making our world a better place….

If purpose is that important, why do we need it?
In my search about why we need purpose, I came across this interesting quote from , the author said,
“Having a purpose gives you an entirely new latitude in life. It is like your secret access pass which unlocks benefits like fulfillment, happiness and success – things people spend their entire lives trying to seek.
What is important is to understand things like abundance, success, wealth, fulfillment, etc are the results of discovering and pursuing your purpose – as long as you find and live your purpose fully and truly, everything will fall into place. It is as simple as that.”

You may ask; how do I discover my purpose? Here are few questions to consider:
• What do you like doing?
• What are the things that give you joy or fulfillment whenever you do it?
• For example, even if there’s no financial attachment?
Your ability to answer above questions might be the first step towards discovering your purpose. In summary, having a purpose in life is what makes life to be more meaningful.

A word to ponder as you seek to discover your purpose ― Thomas Merton said:
“If you want to identify me, ask me not where I live, or what I like to eat, or how I comb my hair, but ask me what I am living for, in detail, ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully for the thing I want to live for.”

Finally, what happen after my purpose is discover? The answer to this question leads us to next series YOUR PLANNING/PREPARATION.

The key foundation to greatness begins with small things,

I believe small steps are far better than big plans without action, and big ideas but full of procrastination.

The benefits of taking small steps

  • It gives you the opportunity to try big things
  • To discover your strength and your weakness
  • To overcome the spirit of procrastination
  • Most of all, it brings you out of your comfort zone and put you into your desire zone
