Stay focus on your abilities rather than your inabilities. Staying focus on your capabilities is an important factor in becoming successful in life. You must remain focus on what you have. Never look on your limitations. Instead of focusing on the “have nots” focus on the things you have and can do. Let what you have work for you.
Every day I use the knowledge I have acquired to maintain success in my purpose. If I was to focus on all the “have nots” in life I would not be writing to encourage you today. I have discovered a greater joy in using what I have to help others instead of focusing on what I do not have or cannot do. I put my trust in God to accomplish my purpose, knowing that with Him there are no limitations.
Don’t limit your possibilities of being successful because you don’t think you have anything of value. God has given each of us a gift, it is our ability to influence others. There are no limits to your success when you know your scope of influence. Your capacity for success is not based on what you have but how you use what you have. In the Bible Jesus tells the story of a ruler who was going on a trip and called three of his servants and gave each one talents (money). To the first he gave five talents, to the second servant he gave two talents and he gave one talent to the third servant. After a long time the ruler returned from his trip, he called each of his servants to enquire what they have done with the talents he had given them. The servant who received five talents traded with them and gained five more talents. The second servant who had two talents did the same and received two more talents also. The servant who received one talent didn’t think he had enough to do anything so instead of making what he had work for him, he buried his talent. When the ruler called, him he dug it out of the ground and gave it back to the ruler. The ruler considered his first two servants faithful stewards, but the third servant he considered to be a wicked servant, because he didn’t even put the talent in the bank to gain interest. Therefore, he took the talent from him and gave it to the servant who he had given five talents. (Matthew 25:14-29)
If you don’t use what you have it cannot be profitable to you. In moments when you find yourself thinking of what you don’t have, start doing something with what you have. Value what you have. Don’t limit yourself. Focus on your possibilities.
What do you have in your hand? Make a list of at least five skills that you have. Of the five skills which is your strongest? What are you doing with it to help others? Are you making it work for you or, do you complain of not having enough?
