If you’ve ever been to any type of professional sports game or professional show, they will only let you in if you have a ticket. Why can’t you just walk up and give them money to be admitted? No..it doesn’t work that way…you have to purchase a ticket and only when you show the proof that you have went through the proper channels to secure an authentic rite of passage will they exchange your ticket for entrance into the event.
Well, if the truth be told…your talents and gifts are amazingly similar: they are your ticket! The problem arrives when so many people go through life without putting in the time to work on themselves to discover their gifts and talents. However, we opt to spend a lifetime working at jobs and performing tasks that often have nothing to do with what we truly feel in our heart, or what we are truly talented in. We become like everyone else in an effort to fit into a job slot.
There is no doubt that the world restricts your growth with it’s ever present financial and social obligations,…and for the most part, there is only one thing wrong with this congested race for financial and social stability. What is it? You start living to work. You identify yourself with your job title. You start to measure yourself against the accomplishments of others that have gone before you or that you currently work with. You start to compete with the people, and work throughout life in a spirit of scarcity, vice the spirit of natural abundance.
But in all your getting, where is the fulfillment? Where’s all the glamorous music that plays when you get that promotion? Where’s all the jubilation? In truth, when we wake up…we realize that we have willingly traded our God given talent and gifts for a week of 40+ hours of stress, misery, frustration,…and a paycheck. And it starts all over on Monday!
Let me ask this question…why did the universe decide to give you a gift, if you are not going to use it? You will never discover why you were born, until you discover your talent and your gift. Exercising your gift is the only path to fulfillment. It’s the only way to peace. It’s the only way to your dream. It’s your ticket to the event of your life.
