Everyone created by God is a masterpiece of God's creativity. Humanity was created fearfully and wonderfully. Hence, living a life short of wonder and impact is failing to live up to God's expectations for our life. However, to make impact in life, it stands you in a good stead to FIND YOURSELF. This could come into focus through divine revelation, the insight you gain from the Scripture and also through your passion. Discovering yourself will, of course, give you visibility into God's purpose for your life and make you relish the pursuit of your goals.
Self discovery isn't all you need to make a difference. If you aren't keen about personal development, you would be allowing precious opportunities to sharpen your talents and skills to go out the window. It bears mentioning that success in life happens when preparation meets with opportunities. Hence, you need to GROW YOURSELF before you can rake in the dividends which opportunities offer. Be assured that eleventh hour preparation when a golden opportunity emerges doesn't translate into success.
The highest level of fulfilment in life should come from the smiles we put on the faces of people. On the strength of this, the key to maximizing your potential isn't when you indulge yourself with maximum pleasure but rather when others begin to live off the talents and God's grace upon your life. To sum it up, to go beyond growing yourself, you need to GIVE OF YOURSELF to others. This is a singular act that helps you to leave a mark on peoples lives. Beyond this, GIVE YOURSELF AWAY FOR GOD'S USE. For without Him, you can achieve nothing. May the Lord help you to reach your goal as you give yourself up for His use in Jesus name.
