Find your gift… then give it away!
So often we get hung up on the idea of success… its’ link to money, prestige, titles, perks, and so on. There is nothing worse than trading your most valuable asset, your time, for money. Time will never be repaid to you. Money doesn’t go to the grave. True success is doing that thing that you’re really, really, good at, that you absolutely love and giving it away.
I dare you to try. It takes courage to step out of your comfort zone and try something new with the risk of failure at your heels, but isn’t that what makes it exciting? In the end you will never regret that you tried. What’s the worst that could happen? You find out it’s not for you, you move on, with a great story to tell.
Erma Bombeck said it perfectly. “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me.”
