Find Your Spot, Discover Your Gift
When i was a teenager, i realized that i was doing so many things at the same time. At some point i wanted to be a musician, an actress, a fashion designer, a singer as well as a Tv presenter. I had so much energy and ambition, that i could pick up more than more career but then again, I knew i wasn’t complete until i read this book and i discovered my spot.
Below are some of words i picked from the book that shaped my life. Being able to discover your gift and find your spot.
“Leaders are born when people discover their gift and find their place. They must first discover what is inside,underneath the clay. When you connect with your spot, your gift comes alive.every human has a place in the universe of humanity. The universe has a place for your gift. Nevertheless, if you are like the average person, you probably have lived most of your life in a job that is not right for you,placing you in constant stress and conflict with who you are.
Each of us must find our spot. Only you can occupy your spot, and no need to be jealous of anyone else’s spot. Our spot is the place we are supposed to be, being who we simply are by nature. When we are not ourselves, we experience stress. \when we are not where we should be- Physically,emotionally,spiritually, we experience stress. The creator did not build humans to live with stress and much of the stress we experience results from being in the wrong spot, most human illness and disease is a result of stress.
As a royal offspring of the king. You are expected to use your gift to influence the environment around you, your realms of leadership. Leadership is about manifesting your gift. King Solomon Said your gift makes room for you in this world and brings you into the presence of the great. A gift the way for giver and ushers him into the presence of the great (Proverbs 18: 16)
When I discovered this truth, everything changed in my life, because I became free from the content of other people and become free to serve the world. Solomon did not say your education or connections would make room for you. Some people can have a PhD have famous relatives or win a lottery and still be broke.
Other can start with little or nothing and create a fortune. Bill Gates quit college to start the venture that eventually became Microsoft. Why? He discovered his gift. Steve Jobs, co founder of Apple computers, quit college after only a semester. Why? He discovered his gift. They developed products the world needed, and they could serve to the world. They developed the products the world needed, and they became rich and famous. Their gifts have brought them before kings and queens.
Please Understand that I am in favor of education, but education cannot give you your gift, it can only help you redefine and develop it,make you more skillful at executing your gift. School, in itself,will not make you successful, gift makes you a success.
Your gift makes you a success. Your gift makes room for you and it will bring you before kings”
From the book In Charge (finding the leader within you) By MYLES MUNROE
