God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well.7 If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. 8 If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. -Romans 12:6-8
I read a book called The Element by Ken Robinson (the speaker in the video below). The subtitle of the book is: “How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything”. I’d highly recommend reading it. It’s about people who are extremely successful because they chose to do what they love to do. I know a lot of people who never pursue what they love for a whole slew of reasons:
Fear of not making enough money, fear of what people will think if you go after it, fear of failure. Fear of _____. (You fill in the blank.)
Take the time to watch this 20 minute TED talk by Ken Robinson:
My question to you is: Why aren’t you doing what you love?
If you’re not pursuing the passions, gifts, and purposes God’s put in your heart, you’re robbing the world of something wonderful.
You could be the next best selling author, the next Joel Osteen, Donald Trump, the next President of the United States, the next Mother Theresa, the next . . . you name it.
I don’t know what you love and what you’re good at, but I know the world could benefit from it greatly. I know that it can make an incredible impact in people’s lives. I know the pursuit of it would change your life forever.
Stop letting fear hold you back from doing what God’s put in your heart to do.
Why not start doing what you love today? Start blogging, start writing, start speaking, start recording, start applying for the job of your dreams. Don’t look back. Life is to short to not do what you love.
“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough” -Fred Allen
