Be Who You Were Born To Be

The Bible says man only dies once. There is no such thing as reincarnation, so don’t hold back! God can create another Shakespeare or Mozart. God is waiting to see what you can do with this gift called life. Will you make your life count, not just for yourself, but for others?

Scientists will tell you that the brain’s primary function is to keep you alive. But that is not a human beings purpose. We are not created to merely survive life either. We are here to thrive. In case you haven’t figured out, the reason we were created isn’t to find the best cup of coffee or the perfect mate nor the dream job. It’s to experience love and grace then give it away.

Has there been a point in your life where you began losing your courage to take risks? Given up on trying for that promotion, enrolling in graduate school or starting a new business? Maybe you’ve settled into a life that is at its best, safe, but mundane — not showcasing your true talents and mirroring your real self worth. Or maybe worse, you see yourself merely keeping ahead of the unseen monster lurking around each corner, robbing you of peace and joy. If this is the case, I would venture to guess that there is something causing you to be stuck in the mindset of a survivor. There is a reason why you feel this way. You are suffering from a growing sense of lack – lack of well-being, courage, strength, prosperity, wealth, health, security. You name it. This growing sense of lack is behind millions of peoples complacency, apathy and injustice program. It is a silent killer.

A growing sense of lack is caused when you attach to self-limiting thought programs, narratives, stories and truths that are not yours to hold onto. Attaching to them causes you to detach from your own truth. When this happens, it’s a breeding ground for an identity crisis.

A person suffering from an identity crisis is someone that thinks someone or something outside of themselves is to blame for where they are in life. They blame an experience or person for who they are. Recognizing that the blame game and holding onto a self-limiting belief systems is your choice. Letting all of that go is when real change is possible. You do this by recognizing that your truth is not someone elses or the past or some event. Taking personal responsibility for your life and choices, including mistakes and all the lost opportunities is when you can change the trajectory of your life and experience transformational healing.

What you can’t do, God can. You just have to ask God to come into your life and clear a path to those who can help you. But first, you must commit to getting well. There is no magic pill. No quick fix. You must do your part and walk in faith, taking the first steps toward disenfranchising yourself from false belief systems. You do this by creating practices, positive, affirming mantras with healthy I AM statements and having a healthy prayer life. These will assist you to shift out of the paradigm of suffering and being weighed down by your fears and thoughts to true healing.

Do not rob yourself of the richer and broader passions of life and the sense of freedom that comes from stepping into your destiny. No one but you can take that first step toward your future but you.

It does not matter the circumstances you were born into or who your parents were and are nor your ancestors. They do not determine your destiny or your identity. That is because you choose who you want to become. We are given free will and choose the nooks and crannies your mind wanders into.

There are many men and women who have overcome extreme adversity and stepped into the path of greatness. If you need inspiration, read about Alexander Hamilton, Francis Harper, Paul the Apostle or Martin Johnson. These are amazing stories of men and women who started with hardscrabble beginnings, were dirt poor, parentless, faced discrimination and were saddled with derogatory labels.

Many people are unseen, unheard and have suffered many injustices. It’s a big club. Why not let your legacy be how rose out of the past and came to your own rescue.

“Never doubt God’s almighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination. He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.” Ephesians 3:2
