Have you ever sat in your cubicle at work and asked yourself this question? Maybe while you were stuck in traffic and thought… There is more that I can be doing with my life. If there is a restlessness that you feel day in and day out, then this is for you. If you are reading this and it resonates with you, it probably means that you should be doing more or something different.
Inside of all of us there should be a burning desire to do something great. The challenge is we don’t know what it is or how to get it out. The key to this is dreaming. We were all made with skills and ability that make us great. The challenge that we face is that we see athletes, singers and movie stars and want to be them… when that may not be our strongest skill. Our God given ability is a clear cut indication of what we should be doing with our lives. If you’re really tall maybe its playing basketball. If you can draw really well maybe it is an artist. An evaluation of what is inside of you can help you determine this. And once you find out you can focus on developing it and becoming the best at what you do.
Spend some quite time and think about the things that come easy to you. It may not be what you’re doing for a living right now and if it’s not you may not be completely satisfied with your job. Take an evaluation of all the things that make you who you are. Think about the things that you enjoy and would do for free. Watching TV should not be one of them… But if you are very opinionated on what you see you could be an entertainment journalist or a film critic. This is just an example to start the thought process. The important part is that you are honest with yourself. Once you find that sweet spot then figure out creative ways that you can contribute to that thing. If you are working in a factory assembling chairs but you have an innovative mind maybe you need to be in a position where you can generate ideas and bring forward your new and creative designs.
After you step back and look at what you have inside of you, then you can start to work on developing those areas. Work on those areas so that they shine. If its something that you link then you should enjoy pushing yourself to do it… but that’s a discussion for another post.
Go and be great!!
