Do you know that every single individual on the face of this earth has got something precious, valuable and amazing in them? Every human has been endowed with some kind of uniqueness in one area or the other, and that includes You!
These worth or value usually come in different shapes and sizes and they don’t seem to always appear ‘amazing‘ right on the surface. But that doesn’t deny the reality that they exist, trapped and locked up in every being. The fascinating thing about them is that they don’t always come as finished products, but they are given to humans by God as raw materials. For instance, to have an oak tree you’d have to grow an acorn seed. To have glittering gold, you’d have to dig and mine the ground. And the same is true for every precious and valuable resource.
“Every human has been endowed with some kind of uniqueness in one area or the other, and that includes You!”
However, the shocking reality is that the majority of humans end up in the grave still ignorant of what they have been endowed with and not having even scratched the surface how much more the content of their capabilities. This is why the cemetery has been considered as the wealthiest place on earth. Simply because in there lies the books that were not written, the songs that were not sung, the speeches that were not made, the inventions that did not see the light of day, the discoveries that were aborted and the dreams that were terminated.
But the great news is that you can do something about it today. Below, I have outlined 5 sincere questions you’d need to answer if you want to unlock the amazing treasures within you. And mind you, a clear cut and sincere answer to each of them is capable of transforming you into an overnight success regardless of where you are on the food chain.
1. Who Am I?
This question addresses the issue of Identity and produces in you a self-awareness or self-realisation. In answering this question, don’t allow your current circumstance to define who you are – your lack of education, finance or connections, unemployment, physical or emotional disability and so on should not define you. Define yourself based on what you see yourself become!
2. Where Am I From?
This question has no connection at all with your ethnic origin but speaks only about your Source. Who do you think formed and created you? Who gave you the breath in your nostrils and the right of existence? Just like the electric iron cannot produce heat without being connected to the mains so also, we humans cannot live without a Source. As for me, God is my Source, so I hail from Him. I’m God’s creation; in his image and likeness.
3. Why Am I Here?
There’s a reason why you occupy space on earth and this reason is your Purpose of existence, your personal reason for living. Your Purpose is your assignment on earth and where Purpose is not known, abuse becomes inevitable. For example, the purpose of a Coffee Vending Machine is to dispense Coffee drinks while the purpose of an ATM Machine is to dispense Cash. Do you ever go to an ATM Machine for Coffee drinks? Definitely Not! So, your Purpose is always unique to you.
4. What Am I Capable Of Doing?
What you’re capable of doing is referred to as your Potential. Ralph Waldo Emerson quoted saying, “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us,” Everything you need is already inside of you, all you need to do is look inward and fetch them out. Think about what you’re talented in, skilled in, gifted to do or capable of doing with little or no struggle. That’s your potential!
5. Where Am I Going?
This speaks about your Destiny. What do you think is the sum total of what you have been created to accomplish before you die? What cause have you been intricately designed to support and what problem have you been fashioned to solve? The likes of Martin Luther King Jnr., Nelson Mandela were destined to emancipate their people from political oppression. That leaves me to surmise that on most occasions, what you hate to see is a pointer to what you have been designed to fix.
