Life starts with knowing yourself and what you are cut out to do (self and purpose), and ends with giving yourself fully to that purpose.
It is not so much about the money, wealth, fame, or swagger. It is about the purpose and fulfilling it. It is about knowing who you are and what you are made for.
Stop trying to be someone else. Know yourself and be yourself. You are at your best when you deploy your full strengths, skills and passions toward your purpose. The best an imitation can be is a copy. Be original.
Appraise yourself. Carry out a personal SWOT. What are your strengths and weaknesses? What opportunities are available for you and what are the threats around you?
When your strengths fuse with opportunities, greatness is birthed. When those opportunities are along the line of your purpose, and you pursue them with your strengths, you are on your way to achieving greatness that will outlive you.
God bless us all.
