The world over, celebrities abound and are seen in almost every sphere of life’s endeavors ranging from music, movie, fashion, blogging, etc.
Some of these celebrities, we sing their praises by celebrating them, while others we envy them. These celebrities are neither super humans nor angels, but are flesh and blood like every one of us.
Moreover, they did not fall from the sky, but are born of a woman and so are we. I do want to ask what if you are one of these celebrities? My answer is that it is possible, we could become one of them ourselves and could be among those being celebrated.
If it is our desire to be among those celebrities being celebrated, then the following should apply: As said earlier, these men and women are born flesh and blood as we are, they become celebrities because they discovered their GOD given talents or gifts and traded with them and that is how they become celebrities.
So the number one secret is to search and discover our own hidden talents or gifts: In considering this point, I wish that this fact should sink deep into your heart, and that is “everyone born on earth is unique and endowed or gifted with one talent or gift or the other”.
In other words, every one of us is born with certain gifts which are hidden inside us waiting to be discovered. It is unfortunate that many of us never discover our own gifts or talents until we die.
That is the reason cemeteries are said to be the richest place on planet earth because buried there are the bones of people who lived and died without discovering their talents and gifts before their death. They are People who failed to fulfill their destinies in life.
To this end, if we desire to be among the celebrities to be celebrated now or in the future, then we really need to sit down and analyze ourselves so as to discover who we are and the hidden talents or gifts God has deposited inside us.
In other words, we really need to search within us to discover our own hidden gifts or talents. Searching and discovering our own gifts and talents is the starting point of being a celebrity ourselves. I wish equally to mention that some of us discovered our own talents very late in life.
That is why I wish to counsel you to start now to search and discover your own gifts and talents. The BIBLE said it in Proverbs 18:16 “A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men.
Secondly, believe in GOD and also believe in yourself that it is possible to become a celebrity: It is unfortunate to say that the reasons, why some don’t make it in life, is because they failed to believe or refuse to believe in themselves.
In this case, you need to believe that it is possible to make it in life by becoming one of the celebrities to be celebrated now or in the near future. Believing in yourself is very crucial because nothing could be done to help a man or woman to make it in life if the man or woman refuses to believe in him or herself.
Thirdly, after you might have discovered your own gifts and talents, the next thing is to pursue and trade with those gifts and talents. Gifts and talents discovered, but not pursued or traded with, will amount to nothing.
We need to pursue those gifts and talents we discovered with our whole might before it will show and announce us to the world.
WARNING: I wish to sound a strong warning; you should never pursue a career simply because a friend is pursuing that career. You must search and discover and ensure that you have the same gifts as your friend before you pursue the same career.
Fourthly, in pursuing the gifts or talents discovered, you must necessarily need to pay some price: Before these gifts could announce you to your world, you must be ready and willing to pay some price.
Paying the price is not necessarily in momentary terms, it could be some sacrifice you need to make, such as putting extra hours doing something, waking up early, or going to bed late in other to achieve your goal.
The problem, why some don’t make it or have a success or breakthrough in life, is laziness, not willing, or our refusal to pay the price. You must note that nothing is free, not even in Freetown. So be ready and willing to pay the price.
Next, another top-secret is discipline: You need to necessarily discipline yourself if you are to make it of being a celebrity. If you fail to discipline yourself now, you could do or be doing things that you could regret in the future or things that could destroy your future.
The point is that if you are not disciplined, you could do some crazy things which later you may regret in the future. Moreover, there are many celebrities whose careers came down crashing simply because of indiscipline. That is to say, there are many people whose indiscipline had robbed them of greatness.
The number sixth point is that you need patience in pursuing your career: Impatience had robbed a lot of people of their destinies because due to impatience; they gave up when their breakthrough is around the corner.
The BIBLE advised us in Hebrew 6:12 “That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises”. Finally, apart from being patient, you need to be persistent: You need to be patient and persistent in pursuit of those talents and gifts discovered.
One could sum it up, if you are not slothful (lazy), if you have faith in yourself, and if you are patient and persistent, you will surely make it. Don’t give up, your miracles are on the way. I see you being celebrated soon in the future. Shalom
