I caught the tail-end of a story on the news yesterday. There was a man, a brilliant maths teacher, forced to flee his country because of political unrest. He settled in Jo’burg and tried to find work in his area of expertise. Nobody would hire him as a teacher, but he managed to get a job as a security guard at a school.
So he took the job. He’d set up a chalkboard wherever he was and would teach maths to whoever needed his help. It didn’t take long for the Principal of the school to notice him and his unconventional, but brilliant ways of teaching maths. He has just accepted a post at the school as a maths teacher.
This story gives me goosebumps. Why? Because it is a fact… your gifting will make room for you.
You see it doesn’t matter where you are stuck in life, or how long you’ve been stuck there. Start doing what you’ve been created to do and sooner or later, opportunities are going to come your way. When you start walking in your destiny, operating in what you’ve been built for – breakthrough is unavoidable.
Know that the dream that is nestled in your heart, that thing that makes you come alive – carries with it an in-built capacity to shift your life. You can read more about that here – Dream Seeds.
So Just Do it. It doesn’t matter if you have to start small. Take that first step. If its writing, WRITE! Painting? Buy the brush and your first tub of paint. As you take that step, you will come alive in ways you never imagined possible.
And doors will open for you.
My dream is to write words that come alive inside my readers and make them think differently. Take the plunge… tell me yours!
