You’d be surprised of how many people are talented, gifted and anointed by God to see the success of reaching and achieving their dreams.. yet they settle to be fast food workers, servers, waitresses, factories, low paying healthcare jobs, grocery stores, housekeeping or clerical work and I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with any of those professions! I’ve actually worked at every single one listed.
There are some people who dream of managing places like that. They love a 9-5, especially if it’s Monday-Friday with every weekend off and that’s cool! I’m not knocking that! However, that’s NOT the case for everybody. Some people actually hate their jobs and will tell you quickly that they are only there to make ends meet at home or do what they gotta do until they can get to where they’re trying to go!
I am also aware that not everyone can afford to immediately invest into their dreams and chase them. For the longest time, that was my biggest issue. I had to learn how to invest a little at a time. There’s several reasons why people just don’t go after the life they really want but here’s the one I keep constantly hearing lately:
“Yeah, I’m really good at doing this or that but it’s so many other people doing it now that there’s really no point in me pursing it anymore.”
Let me tell you something, I don’t care how oversaturated the market is, if God called you to it, then there’s room for you too!! Don’t let the success of other people intimidate you just because they’re on a similar journey. What you have to remember is that even though you may be operating with similar gifts, the difference is the particular assignment God has YOU on!
Can I say something else? Don’t be discouraged by what’s not lining up. It’s not over. Behind the scenes, things are happening that you can’t see. Don’t let circumstances make you forget what God promised you! Everything you’ve walked through has strategically placed you in the right place at the right time before the right people to catapult you into destiny! So with that being said, quitting isn’t a option. Keep moving forward into all God has for you.
There IS greatness in you and when you start truly believing that about yourself and putting some real action behind it.. things will start to change!! You do NOT have to settle for a life you know deep down you really don’t want. Develop success from your failures. Invest a little at a time. Learn from your mistakes. Get around people who actually inspire you! Oh and always remember :
“Your talent is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to Him!”
