To wish for change will change nothing. To make the decision to take action right now will change everything. – Nick Vujicic
The month of October is my birth month. And as soon as we got into it, I started thinking of what I could do to make my life much better than it is now. I envisaged my next birthday in 2016 and I really want a lot of things to be different before then.
I have a lot of dreams that I desperately want to see become a reality. I imagined a life where all my past dreams had come to pass and I was dreaming and accomplishing new ones. That to me is a life without limits.
Maybe you are like me. Or maybe you are thinking, “Where do I start Toby? I have this big dream, but I don’t know what I can do to see it come to pass.”
Don’t worry. I have compiled some steps for you to follow. These steps will guide you to living a life without limits
Here they are:
Explore your options, self discovery is unending.
Ninety percent of the world’s woes come from people not knowing themselves, their abilities, their frailties and even their real virtues.” – Sydney Harris
The philosopher Plato is well known for the phrase, “Man know yourself”.
Self discovery is an unending process. Many of us don’t really know what we could be good at until we explore all our options.
Let me give you an instance with myself.
I once got elected as the organizing secretary of my student fellowship group. I had never been an organizer before, but I accepted the position, and did my best.
Along the line, I noticed that I loved organizing things. Planning programs became a hobby for me.
Right now, event planning and management is one of the businesses I do. Had I not chosen to explore that option, I wouldn’t have discovered that I had a strong knack for managing events.
You should do the same thing. Don’t just be satisfied with the things you feel you can do very well presently. Believe it or not, your abilities are so much more than you can imagine. Explore them.
Discover your areas of strengths.
It is only well with me when I have a chisel in my hand- Michelangelo
There is no gift-less human being. We all have strong points, and things we are very good at doing. These are things we often refer to as gifts or potentials.
I have heard and seen many people get confused about the subject of purpose. These people are waiting for a cosmic light to appear in the sky and announce the glorious purpose for which they were born.
They forget that they already have gifts and talents embedded inside them. They do not realize that these gifts are the major pointers to what purpose they are supposed to fulfil on earth.
You should not be like them. Do a quick exercise now. Take a pen and get a writing material ready.
Now make a list of the things you know you are naturally gifted at. Write down those things you have done exceptionally well in the past, or things you have once received accolades for doing.
Those are your strengths. Keep them handy, they are the pointers you need to start living your best life…
