Super Hero

14 Jan

Everyone is different, and we each have our own specific talents and abilities. What is difficult for one, is easy for another, and everyone expresses a completely unique package of gifts. Just like the super heroes we’ve heard about, we all have an ability that is powerful and exclusive to us. It’s easy to identify amazing musical talents, or artistic skills that enhance and beautify the world around us. But there are lots of other gifts that aren’t as obvious, but still impressive and incredible. Maybe we’re extremely patient, or have the ability to understand others easily, or perhaps we’re emotionally strong and stable, and able to endure more than others. We might be very wise and insightful, or ambitious and intelligent. The scope of capabilities and capacities is unlimited. We all have something special but nobody can tell us what our super power is. We must uncover and discover it ourselves. Everyone gets something special and nobody is exempt. We all have something unique and powerful within us, and once we identify what our particular personal gifts are, we can use them to move ourselves forward and help those around us. The world is filled with billions of people and no two are exactly the same. Each person brings something different and individual that embellishes everything around them. Using the talents and powers we’ve been given to compliment and strengthen those around us will bring us great satisfaction and personal joy. We are an asset to the world and when we share our gifts with others, everyone benefits. The whole world is better because we are here. We are powerful and capable of bringing light to every situation.

When we see the profound abilities others possess, we may feel we are lacking. People may do impressive things that bring great attention and honor, and when they excel and we don’t share their particular talents, we may shrink and think we have nothing to offer. Every single person changes the world in some way. We don’t have to be loud and obvious to be effective in creating a positive change. The gifts we have are remarkable and make us who we are. We can be confident that our very presence compliments and enriches the world around us.

Most of us will never be famous, or Olympic stars, or invent something that changes the whole world. Our lives may seem ordinary and plain when compared to those who do amazing and incredible feats of daring or intellect. However, every single life is important and essential to our entire creation. Every day we have the chance to do something that helps someone else or makes things easier or better for those around us. We have great gifts to offer, and with each step we take and each decision we make, we can bring great joy and happiness to ourselves and everyone around us.

Today if you feel small and that your contribution means little, remember there has never been, and never will be anyone else exactly like you. You are unique and precious. When you share your gifts with us, we all benefit. Be confident. You are changing the world for good, and we are all blessed because you are here.

Taking the Leap

18 Jan

Everyone has dreams, wishes and hopes. It’s great to think about how things could be and we can spend all the time we want imagining our lives the way we dream of them. Maybe we desire more money, or there is someone special we want to share our lives with, or we dream of moving someplace new. We can spend our lives thinking “if only” something would happen we would be happier. But wishing and dreaming will never get us where we want to go. Even if we come up with the perfect plan to get there, if we do nothing, we will stay exactly where we are. Nobody knows what lies ahead and trying something new will bring unknown challenges and developments. It might not work out the way we think it will. The road might be far steeper and more difficult than we imagine, and in the end, we could fail. There are endless scenarios that might happen and we may worry about things that could go wrong. But until we actually begin we will never know how far we can go. We are stronger and more capable than we realize and if we really want to get somewhere, nothing is strong enough or complicated enough to stop us. But we must take the first step. And then we can look ahead and take the next one. If we continue forward, no matter what’s in the way, we will get to the destination we’ve set our sights on. We can do anything. We are powerful and wise, and nothing is out of reach. We can start forward and find success.

Olympic high divers are impressive to watch. It takes years of grueling practice and discipline to learn how to complete complex dives, and the road to the level of perfection needed is dangerous and difficult. After all the training and hard work, when the time comes if the diver walks to the end of the board and does not jump, there can be no success. Even if they know everything about the dive, and understand perfectly what must be done, if they don’t actually jump off the board, nothing can be accomplished. We might not train to be an Olympic diver but our dreams are just as important. Understanding them is just the first step. We have to take the leap and move forward to accomplish them.

There are countless reasons to put our desires off and set them aside. We’re busy, our lives are complicated, we have unexpected problems, there isn’t enough time, and on and on. The truth in life is we always do what we want to do most. There may be pressures from others and time constraints but nothing is powerful enough to keep us from what we want the most. When we decide to move forward, nothing will stop us. We’ll find our way around every detour and hurdle, and push ahead. Every dream is possible and every destination is reachable. We need only begin.

Today if you’ve been dreaming about how you want your life to be but have continued on the same road, change direction and move toward what you want. There isn’t anything strong enough to keep you in place. You can achieve any desire and make all your dreams come true. Your life belongs to you. Take control and begin forward. It’s all there for you. Success is one step away.
