Taking Steps To Maximize Your Talents & Potentials
The outcome of your life, which many call destiny, is a product of choice, and it is mostly determined by the steps you decide to take or by the choices you make.
If you decide to sit down and do nothing and hang out with lazy and hopeless people, your potentials would be wasted. Or if you worry all the time about your inadequacies or disadvantaged status, you would never rise to the top. A Swedish proverb says, “Worry gives a small thing a big shadow”.
You must take steps to change your life for good. Yes, it would involve hard work. No one said becoming successful is ever easy.
Note that, success can never be like a stroll in the park. It involves ups and downs; and the choices you make determine whether or not you would reach your goal.
According to John L. Mason, “You cannot stroll to a goal”. Yes, not even Diego Maradonna nor Lionel Messi can ever dream of such feat on the soccer pitch.
Deliberately make decisions that would improve your talents. Take positive steps or make choices to improve what you have. No matter how little the talent you have is, if you commit them to God and take steps to maximize them, your greatness and celebration is inevitable – it is only a matter of time!
