Created for Greatness

greatness

Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)

10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

It can be very easy to go through life thinking that we’re average; we’re ordinary.  We can easily find ourselves saying things like, “There’s nothing special about me.  I’m just one of the six billion people here on earth.”  Our society can be very quick to tear down people who achieve success.  People want to be successful, but they don’t really want other people to be too successful.  When you do something extraordinary, people will have a tendency to try to tear you down.  They will try to bring you back down to the level of average because that makes people feel better about themselves.

The reality is that each one of use is extraordinary in our own unique ways.  None of us are average.  When God created each of us, He put a part of Himself inside of each one of us.  Each of us contains the DNA of the Almighty God.  Each of us is destined to do great things in our lives.  Each one of us is destined to leave our own unique mark on this generation.  The truth is, there is nothing average about any of us, but too many times, we don’t realize who we really are.  We focus on our weaknesses or what we don’t have.  We focus on the mistakes we’ve made or the family from which we’ve come.  We end up settling for mediocrity when we were created for greatness.

Instead, we should put our focus on our strengths and be thankful for the gifts we do have.  We should focus on our successes and look at our mistakes as just opportunities to learn and do better the next time around.  We should celebrate our family because they are unique and they are our foundation and history.  We need to know that we are special and stop settling for just getting by in our lives.

If we are going to break out of average, we need to remind ourselves each day, “I have the DNA of the Most High God.  Greatness is in my genes.  I come from a bloodline of champions.”  If we can have the attitude of a champion, we will live the life of a champion.  In doing so we will be able to boldly embrace the blessings that God has in store for us in our lives.

We were created for greatness so let’s start living lives that reflect that.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%

    You must have learned that from someone who raised you, to never give up on yourself and to always believe you can do anything if you work at it. Love Mom
