Happy new year everyone. Hope 2019 is going well.
There’s something interesting i just thought about and would like to share. Each of us are unique in terms of personality and abilities we are gifted in. We are equipped with gifts and talents that help us fulfil a God-given purpose . Yet, there is this temptation to compare yourself with people in completely different seasons of life. Does it make sense to compare someone who is running a marathon to someone who is running a 100 metre sprint? Absolutely not. There are two completely different races with two completely different abilities and requirements. Yet, sometimes when you fall into the temptation of looking at where you are vis -a – vis where othere are, you tend to feel down yet you ignore your accomplishments thus far or dismiss the improvement you have made. In short, run your race. Get intentional on improving your abilities , what you are good at. Focus on the things you want to do, in the career you want and in the area of life you are interested in . Focus on ensuring you have improved. If you are better than where you were before, then, that is progress and that is where the focus should be.
