You are welcome to a new series “Dealing with the facts of life to fulfill destiny”. There are facts of life that we must accept and deal with if we are to succeed and fulfill our destiny life. In this first part of the series, we shall start by identifying those facts of life.
The first fact we should look at is our uniqueness in creation: As far as GOD’S creation is concerned, we are created a unique being.
Even science tell us that of all human being on earth, we all have differences in fingerprints and no two fingerprints are exactly the same, not even Twins.
Acknowledging our uniqueness is so important or vital to our success and breakthrough in life. This is because it is who we are that helps us to achieve what we have to achieve in life.
It is when we fully accept or acknowledge our unique being that we pursue and develop it. The reason, why some fail to make it in life, is because some reject their own unique person while trying to be like somebody else.
Some end up destroying their own person trying to be like another person, some even go to the extent of changing their physical appearance to look like someone else.
For an avoidance of doubts, we can imitate someone but we can never be exactly like that person no matter how much we try to be.
Our success and breakthrough in life come, therefore, when we fully acknowledge our being unique and try to develop our uniqueness. Be yourself and don’t be someone else.
The second fact we should look at is the fact that we all have differences in our gifts and talents in life. That is to say, everyone born on earth is empowered with diverse gifts or talents.
No one gifts or talents are of less importance than the other. Some of those who are a success today are those who have identified their own talents, traded with them, and today, the talents had yielded great dividends.
Like the first point, some are failures in life because they failed to identify their own given talents and gifts. While they are trying to be like another person who may have different gifts and talents.
Some get frustrated in life, some even die in the process trying to achieve what someone else had achieved.
Of a truth, our own success and breakthrough in life come when we correctly identify our own gifts and talents and diligently trade with those gifts. We identify our own gifts and talents through exploration, searching diligently for them.
Today, some are making it in life by being a footballer like Messi, others are making it by being a blogger like Linda Ikeji while others are making it just by making others laugh- comedian.
As said earlier, no one gifts or talents are of less importance than the other, so we should learn to identify our own hidden talents and gifts for that may be where our breakthrough and success in life lies.
So we should try and identify our own talents and gifts before we try to imitate someone else who may have different gifts and talents.
The problems with some folks is that when they see that someone had made it in one area in life, they jump and start doing what that person is doing.
They fail to consider that they don’t possess the same gifts and talents as that person. As a result, they allow their own gifts to lay dormant inside of them while they are pursuing someone’s own gifts and talents.
To identify your gifts and talents, you may necessarily need someone to guide you by being teachable.
Myself, for instance, I have a flare in article writing in which I was writing and posting articles in different forums.
It was John Oyedepo “Sir J” who fished me out and started sending me an email on the need to have my own blog site so that the articles will be in one place.
That is how I ventured into blogging and am happy that my articles are touching lives.
All that am saying, therefore, is that we should try and identify our own hidden gifts and talents, trade with them for in doing so we will have a breakthrough in life.
Don’t neglect and reject your own gifts or talents but embrace and trade with them and God will grant you success and breakthrough in life. To your success. To read the second part, GO HERE.
