We would like to think that some are gifted and some aren???t.
We???d like to think that because it takes it outside of our control and therefore, our responsibility. But your life, your perception of life, changes significantly, when you embrace control and direction over your life. Things change when you focus not on what happens to you but rather how you react to what happens to you. We all have a gift to bring forward and our job in life is to find out what that is. Our job is to find out what we are good at and what we are passionate about and to bring forward, in essence, better versions of ourselves. What does that mean? You have a version of yourself which represents who you think you are. There is also a version that everyone else sees and a version of what you put out.
Being more of who you are takes time and practice. It requires skill borne of experience, patience and a willingness to embrace who you are. Sometimes you wish you weren???t who you were. But if you could decide what parts you were happy with and what parts you wanted to change, you could work on it. And the key here is that it is a journey, not a destination that we strive for. Living a life truer to who we are meant to be comes pretty darn close to bliss.
You can???t do this …
if you ignore or don???t believe this;
if you don???t allow yourself the full breadth of experiences you know you need;
if you presuppose exactly what it is that you can or cannot do;
if you stop yourself before you???ve even started.
