Within you is something unique, something that longs for expression and somthing that will not only change you forever, but will change the world forever. As each one is an individualization of that which created, sustains and lives in all, each one individualizes it. It is only you that thinks as you do, perceives life as you do and feels as you do.
It is likewise only you that creates what you create, for only you can. No other can be you, no other can think for you and no other can give the world the gift that lies within you. You have something to give which only you can. It is the reason you were born.
Though we each have a special gift to give the world, few of us ever do and few of us ever will. In fact, most never realize this is true of them and will go through life feeling as if this is only the case for a special few. As you read these words you may reason, “There could only be one Da Vinci, Beethoven, Joan of Arc, Edison, Ford, Nelson Mandela, Amelia Earhart, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Barack Obama or anyone else who is that notable for their contributions to the world”. If that is your thought, you are absolutely correct. There can only be one of any of these monumental figures of history, past or present.
Likewise, there is and can only be one you. You may not have risen to the height that any of the aforementioned have, but you can. But like each of the aforementioned, no one else can do what you have in you to do. Only you have the God given talent that is yours. Only you have the ideas and the desires that can give expression to your dreams, for they are your dreams and your dreams alone.
You can keep doing what you feel is practical or safe, you can keep feeling as if there is no hope for you to accomplish anything with your life, or you can listen to your heart and honor your heart’s desire. Your unique talents are equal to living the desires of your heart. When you listen to your heart’s desire and follow your dream, believing that your dreams become your reality, they do.
New heights are in you to be reached and you can reach them. You cannot reach a new height if you don’t believe you can, because if you don’t believe you can reach it, you won’t even try. You will not reach a new height if you don’t start moving in that direction, because without moving in the direction of your dream you cannot get there. You will only reach a new height if you begin to climb.
Dare to climb that mountain, write that book, sing that song or implement that idea the world has never heard of before, because the dream belongs to you and you alone. It belongs to you, but it is your gift for the world.
