We all have gifts. Some of them we have discovered and we are working passionately with them, cooking, managing a business, dancing.
This is where we shine. It’s not always easy but it does have a certain flow that just works. We are just good at it.
While some people are working with their gifts, others have a pull or quiet desperation that they walk around with. They might try to discover what it is through books or reflection. Or they might just turn on the TV to mute the knowing in themselves.
In my experience, when we have found what we love to do and are acting on that passion, we are on fire. For me, I seem to need less sleep and I wake up excited to see what the day will hold.
Mind you, everyday is not like that. Some mornings I feel like a slug. But I can definitely tell the difference between being engaged in the direction of my dreams or disengaged and avoiding.
What would the world be like if more people found their gifts and were acting on them? If more people woke up on purpose and started their day with intention?
In my vision, there would be a lot less junk food, TV and lack of focus. There would be more smiles and less loneliness. Idyllic? Maybe, but not impossible.
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
