Have you felt like no matter what you did, you’d never be number one? You put your all into something and yet it still doesn’t amount to that first place position. Finding yourself in a constant cycle of competition with others and dangerous comparison. Don’t you know how detrimental this is to your mind, body, and spirit?
Our mind will believe whatever we tell it. If you feed negativity, insecurities, and jealousy, your actions and feelings will produce those unfavorable results. And then you’ll find yourself wondering why your spirit is so dejected. You told yourself you were unworthy! And the scariest part is that you believed it.
A lot of advisors will say to fake it til you make it. But you shouldn’t have to fake it. Take notice of all of the amazing qualities you possess. Nobody else has them! That’s the beauty in how the Eternal Creator crafted us. He made sure to create everyone with their own distinct qualities that would mesh well with others to create an even more beautiful masterpiece.
Think of it this way. All of us have been a part of a team at some point in our lives. If you did not bring your dish to the table, the meal would be incomplete. Additionally, if you tried to bring somebody else’s dish to the table, now there’s confusion and a lack of progress. Nothing would get accomplished! And nobody likes a hangry crowd.
Examine your gifts and your passions. Fuel your passions with the purpose that The Most High has given to you. You might find that you are right on track. Even if you aren’t, it’s okay to take a pause to realign. Understanding your importance is not a rushed process. It’s a journey of self-discovery and acceptance.
The next time you are stuck in a funk, remember who you are and whose you are. The Most High made no mistakes in His Creation, and this world would be incomplete if you decided to be anyone else other than yourself.
