To succeed in life, you have to look beyond your limitations to identify and maximize what you have to change your world. You must learn to concentrate on what you have than being concerned about what you don’t have. There is no human being on earth that has everything and there is no one without any ability as well; God does not create anyone empty. Some people are not beautiful but are graceful and intelligent, instead of mourning your physical deficiency think of how to affect your world with your efficiency. It is who you accept yourself to be that determines who you are and what you are going to become.

“ The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer; The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks; The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands; {by…: Heb. gathered together}The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings’ palaces.” Prov.30:25-28

These four creatures could have been naturally limited by their circumstances, but they look beyond their limitations inwardly to find out what they have the ability to do. The ant is very weak but inwardly, they discovered that they still have hidden ability to prepare something that will make their life count. It is your discovery about yourself that determines your disposition and your disposition will determine your destination, which will help you determine your direction. Success becomes inevitable the moment you discover your hidden capacity.
Don’t allow your sight to alter your sense of identity. Don’t allow what you’re seeing or what you can’t see to cloud your sense of identity, you are more than you think you’re or you have ever been. One of the reasons why some people has never become more than they are is because they have allowed their challenges or their comfort to create barriers for their life. Some people has never dreamt of any better status financially again since they got their current job or started making appreciable profit from their business because from their perspective, that is the best anybody can have. Beloved,that is not true, your life and future doesn’t depend on what you can see, feel or do but on your ability to patiently discover and develop what you have in order to create God’s desired future for your life. Like I said in the last edition, after you have prayed for divine illumination, you have to engage your mind and think strategically on what to do where you are to create a better future for yourself.

To become an exceptional person in life,you need to neglet what you don’t have the ability to do and focus on managing what you have (your area of strength or that thing that seems as weakness which you felt God is boosting your passion for ) to develop a global value for your future.

I remember the story of a young man named Nicholas Vujicic who without any medical explanation or warning, was born in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia, without arms and legs. Three sonograms failed to reveal complications. And yet, the Vujicic family was destined to cope with both the challenge and blessing of raising a son who refused to allow his physical condition to limit his destiny.

The early days were difficult. Throughout his childhood, Nick not only dealt with the typical challenges of school and adolescence, but he also struggled with depression and loneliness. Nick constantly wondered why he was different than all the other kids. He questioned the purpose of life, or if he even had a purpose. According to Nick, the victory over his struggles, as well as his strength and passion for life today, can be credited to his faith in God. His family, friends and the many people he has encountered along the journey have inspired him to carry on, as well.

Since his first speaking engagement at age 19, Nick has traveled around the world, sharing his story with millions, sometimes in stadiums filled to capacity, speaking to a range of diverse groups such as students, teachers, young people, business professionals and church congregations of all sizes. Today this dynamic young evangelist has accomplished more than most people achieve in a lifetime. He’s an author, musician, actor, and his hobbies include fishing, painting and swimming. Nick says, “If God can use a man without arms and legs to be His hands and feet, then He will certainly use any willing heart!”

People of this same age brackets with this young man that has no medical limitations has not achieve as much as he has for God and in God. It is not your limitation that define your impact but your faith in God’s ability in your life. Remember what I said earlier, you are not created empty because God does not create anyone empty. Therefore, God will never allow you to be found in a place ( whether occupation, vocation, situation or pursuit) without giving you the resources to stand out for good. Make effort to read part 2, I will explain that better in part two. Till then give attention to productive and strategic thinking.
