“In life you don’t get what you want, in life you get what you are, not what you want! My father could have been a great comedian but he didn’t believe that that was possible for him, and so he made a conservative choice. Instead, he got a safe job as an account. When I was 12 years old, he was let go from that safe job, and our family had to do whatever we could to survive. I learned many great lessons from my father, not the least of which was that you could fail at what you don’t love, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.” ~ Jim Carrey
So many of us live our lives just for the sake of living it, thinking that there’s always tomorrow to make something different, to change something about our lives and we do this without even realizing that another day that goes by is another day lost, another day that we can’t take back.
For years and years you do the same things, make the same mistakes, as if you were living a patterned life, a life that, once you truly open your eyes, you don’t even recognize as your own. Why do you do this? Why is it so hard for you to understand there is as much greatness within you as there is in the people you admire? The successful people that were the same as you but believed in themselves more and managed to overcome their limiting beliefs and started truly living their lives.
You were not brought here to live a mediocre life. You were given this beautiful gift of life so that you can make the best of it so that you can enjoy it by doing the things you love, the things that bring your Soul happiness and fulfillment, the things that bring happiness into other people’s lives too.
And you will only be able to do this when you will understand your true potential when you will recognize the greatness that lies within you. When you will allow your so called mistakes, your failure to teach you more about appreciating the lessons life sends your way, to teach you about patience and leave behind all thoughts of self-criticism and blame and make today the beginning of the rest of your amazing life.
In the closing, I want to share with you this powerful video that will remind you that you too are powerful beyond measure and that all you need to do to discover the greatness within you, is to open your heart and eyes to see the person you are truly meant to be.
