Greatness

23 Aug

The world is filled with all kinds of people. There are millions of us with endless ideas and expressions regarding how things should go and what we should do. Most people are good and will do their best to live a noble and virtuous life, and we can always make  good decisions about own lives. As we strive to live well, there will always be a lot of influences around us. There are constant messages about how we should look, what we should have, where we should live, and thousands of other opinions. We could never measure up to all the values and attributes others suggest, and trying to do so may lead to feelings of inadequacy and imperfection. The world is full of ideas and it’s impossible to emulate every single one. If we try to become what someone else thinks we should be, or do what they think we should do, we will lose our own uniqueness and the gifts we have to offer will be lost. We were created to be exactly who we are. We are the only one like us in all creation. The only one. Nobody else will ever be able to give the world what we offer. It doesn’t matter what others are doing, it doesn’t matter what they think or how they want us to live. What’s important is that we’re authentic to exactly who we are. It’s easy to forget the greatness we bring, but it will always be there inside us, ready to share. We can recognize what a true blessing we are and how important our influence is to the world around us. Nothing could ever replace us or take our place. We are where we need to be at this very moment, and can do anything we want going forward. The whole world is blessed because we are here, and our influence is great and valuable.

It’s always easy to bring people together when they share a common interest. They understand each other’s perspectives and their shared concerns give them a base for recognition and communication. We can share anything we like in our lives, but we never need to conform to someone else’s view. Going along to get along will never bring us the happiness or satisfaction we deserve. Being completely authentic and genuine in our choices will bring us great contentment and gratification.

Pianos do not have unlimited keys. They always have eighty-eight keys and although the tones are limited, the melodies that can be created using them are endless. Imagine what would happen if they had endless keys and tones. The possibilities are beyond our comprehension. Our lives are like a piano with unlimited keys. We can do anything, go anywhere, and accomplish any goal we desire. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is off limits. We can make every dream come true and reach any destination we desire. We are powerful and incredible, and our greatness influences everything around us for good.

Today if you’ve been following someone else’s ideas about how you should live your life, remember how great and unique you are. You are like a rare, perfect diamond, one of a kind, and irreplaceable. Be exactly who you are and your influence will enrich us all. Nothing can ever take your place, and the whole world is blessed because you are here.
