Your Unique Abilities to Shake The World
awoke to the feeling of being shook and felt scared
because I didn't know what was happening. It later
transpired that we had experienced an earthquake.
As I reflected on this occurrence and my feelings
at the time, I realized it was a metaphor for
shaking up our lives. What do I mean by shaking
up our lives? I mean taking the opportunity to
really go for our dreams or to take that leap
of faith, that step that feels huge.
people don't take the opportunity to shake or
change their world, or even their own environment,
such as work, family or community.
in Your Potential
up your world means using your own unique abilities,
strengths and gifts to either change things dramatically
or to make progress towards change. The number
one reason hindering people is they don't realize
how much they have to offer. At times they may
have fleeting thoughts of their brilliance, but
they let these thoughts pass without belief or
action, probably due to fear.
believe that you as an individual possess much
more than you ever tap into. This may be in the
form of wisdom, skills, beliefs, strengths, intuition,
ability, and gifts. A unique combination of all
these things belongs to each of you as individuals.
It may seem easier to play small in the world
and not develop your true potential. However,
by doing this, what are you and others missing
as the earthquake was scary for me in the feeling
of being shook, it can feel very scary to consider
what you have, that potentially could add to or
shake up your life and possibly others around
you. Fear is a major factor that holds people
back from going for many things. Be grateful for
the fearful part of you and embrace it on your
journey rather than be stopped by it.
Fear to Your Advantage
what you could offer the world if you refused
to let fear hold you back. Perhaps you work in
a corporate environment, and you have insight
into improving communication, employee retention
or leadership development. Possibly you run your
own business and sense that there are more innovative
ways of offering your product or service. Maybe
you're an individual who wants to build a stronger
community, or you have ideas for helping drug-addicts
or single mothers.
it may feel scary to consider what you have to
offer, it can also be very exciting. I believe
that you do have a sense of your magnificence,
even if it's buried very deeply. Perhaps you just
haven't given it an opportunity to be unlocked.
You can unlock this at your own pace and this
usually requires that you step out of your comfort
you first step out of your comfort zone it may
feel difficult and fearful, but at some point
it will become comfortable again. The first step
out of your comfort zone is to start the process
of seeing clearly what you have to offer that
may potentially shake the world. Whether you have
much of an idea of what it is or not, start by
committing your thoughts to paper. This allows
you to see it more clearly, and the opportunity
to add to it and explore it further. Consider
the following as you explore your potential:
What are your ideas?
· What are you really good at?
· What do you want to change?
· What are your values?
· What's important to you?
this stage you may not know how you're going to
go about using your unique abilities. That's okay.
Continue to write about them, dream about them
and allow yourself to get really excited about
them. When your enthusiasm and inspiration increases
dramatically, you will find that you naturally
know what needs to be done. Your excitement and
inspiration is infectious to people around you,
even if they don't know of your idea. This often
draws the right people and opportunities to you.
playing small and discover your unique brilliance.
