The world over, celebrities abound and are seen in almost every sphere of life 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 by a woman and so are we. I want to ask what if you are one of these celebrities.
My answer is that it is possible, we could as well become one of the celebrities ourselves and could be among those being celebrated. If it is our desire to be among those celebrities that are 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 trade 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 sinks into our hearts, and that is, “everyone Born On Earth Is Unique And is being Gifted With One Talent Or Gift Or The Other”.
In other words, every one of us on earth 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 till we die. That is the reason cemeteries or burial grounds are the richest places on planet earth.
The reason is that buried there are the bones of people who lived and died without discovering their talents and gifts before their death. To this end, if we are to become among those celebrities to be celebrated now or in the future.
Then we really need to sit down and analyze ourselves to discover who we really are and those hidden talents or gifts God has put inside us. In other words, we really need to search and search within us to discover our own hidden gifts or talents.
Searching and discovering our own gifts is the starting point of becoming a celebrity ourselves. I wish equally to mention that some of us discover our own talents very late in life.
That is the reason, I wish that we start now to search and discover our own gifts and talents. The Bible said this in Proverbs 18:16a, saying that “man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men”.
Secondly, we need to believe in GOD and also believe in ourselves. It is unfortunate to say that the reason, some people don’t make it in life, is because they fail to believe or refuse to believe in themselves.
Believing in oneself that it is possible for one to make it. In this case, we need to believe that it is possible to make it or become one of the celebrities to be celebrated in the near future.
To believe in ourselves is very important 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 himself or herself. So my counsel is to remove the word Impossible from our dictionary.
Thirdly, after we might have discovered our 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, amount to nothing.
We need to pursue those gifts and talents we discovered within us with our whole might before they could show and announce us to the world.
WARNING: I wish to sound a strong warning; never pursued a career simply because a friend is pursuing that career. We must search and discover and ensure that we have the same gifts as our friends before we pursue the same career.
Fourthly, in pursuing the gifts discovered, we may necessarily need to pay some price before the gifts announce us to your world. In other words, we must be ready and pay the price.
Paying the price is not necessarily in momentary terms. It may be some sacrifice we need to make, such as putting in extra hours to do something, waking up early, or going to bed late in other to achieve your goal.
The problem or reason some don’t make it or have a breakthrough in life is laziness, not being willing, or refusing to pay the price. We must note that nothing is free, not even in Freetown. So must be ready and willing to pay the price.
Fifthly, another top-secret is discipline. We need to necessarily discipline ourselves if we are to make it and not complicate the matter that could destroy our future. If we don’t discipline ourselves now, we could do or be doing things that we could regret in the future or things that could destroy our future.
The point is that if you are not disciplined, you could make some crazy mistakes that you could later regret in the future. Moreover, there are many celebrities whose careers came down crashing simply because of indiscipline.
The sixth point is that we need to be patient in pursuing our careers. 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, is persistence, we need to be persistent in pursuit of those talents and gifts we discovered within.
One could sum it up if we are not slothful (lazy), have faith in ourselves if we are patient and persistent, we shall surely make it. Don’t give up, your miracles are on the way. I see you been celebrated soon in the future.
