Dr. Myles Munroe, an ordained minister, beautifully articulates why we need to find our gift. His message is clear and awesome and it is applicable to everyone. By the end of this message you will want to crumple up your to-do list and throw it away because everything on that list is meaningless. Instead, finding our purpose is our most important job. It trumps everything else. When you find your gift, money, success, and possessions becomes utterly irrelevant. When you find your gift and live with purpose, you become whole. Life becomes easy. Energy flows from you. People are attracted to you. You add value to those around you.
Finding our gift takes time, effort, and work. But don’t fret if you have not yet begun searching for your gift, or if you have been searching for a while but have not yet found it.
The easiest thing to do is to set a little time aside everyday to discover what your gift is. Ask yourself questions like:
- What activities, topics, or issues energize me?
- When do I lose track of time?
- When do I find myself is a state of flow?
- What comes naturally to me?
- What do I find easy and interesting?
- When am I rewarded?
- What am I happy to share with others?
The more effort you put in to discovering your gift the more you get out. The best part is there is no lost time or downside risk. Every single minute you engage in self-discovery has a multiple effect on your well-being. It is both rewarding and beneficial. So don’t hold off or put it on the back burner. Start your journey today.
