We all have a God-given destiny to fulfill that we were each born with. I personally believe it is buried deep down within us. The number one secret to success is to let it emerge out of you and release it to the world. What is my destiny you may ask? It is the thing you would regret not doing before leaving Planet Earth.
In the book, Five Regrets of the Dying, Bonnie Ware states one of the top five regrets is, “I wish I had the courage to live a life that was true to myself, not the life others expected of me.” We each have a purposeful, powerful and passionate dream we were born with. Sometimes it gets shoved aside out of fear or resistance to ourselves.
You can’t be afraid to own it and declare it to the world. Sometimes you feel you’re not worthy or that you could never manifest it. Resistance to our inner greatness is debilitating. It keeps you safe and comfortable with your dreams stuffed down inside you.
Nothing helps more than writing out your personal life mission in one intentional statement. Make the vision plain and write it on the wall so you can run with it. An example of a famous person’s mission statement is Oprah Winfrey.
Years before she was famous, she wrote the following vision statement. “To be a teacher. And to be known for inspiring my students to be more than they thought they could be.” When she first wrote this, she never dreamed it would be on TV. Sometimes your vision forces you to step out and up into something greater than your very being.
Once you have your destiny statement in front of you, it clarifies your vision. It defines what you will give your time and attention to. Nothing is as empowering and impactful as a personal destiny statement.
Here are three steps to getting started today:
1. Define your top talents and strengths
Make a list of your top traits and see if those might become part of your destiny statement. What does everyone say about you? What have you loved doing since you were 5 years old? What are you naturally good at doing? What do people say about you over and over? What have you been denying about yourself for years?
“Focus on your work. Do what you’re great at. Don’t compare yourself to others and or waste time criticizing the lives and work of others. Do what matters most to you and make a difference doing that.” – Germany Kent
2. Write out what you want to accomplish in one statement
Ask yourself what you want to be remembered for? What do you most dream of accomplishing in your lifetime? If you had no limits, restraints, and nothing holding you back, what would you go for? If money weren’t a factor, what would you ultimately pursue?
You will only live a lesser version of your life, full of story and why you couldn’t have your one true dream if you don’t get this real with yourself. Dig deep inside your core to reveal your one authentic truth.
You must have a respect for your calling. You were born with it after all and it is a talent given to you as an investment. What will you do with your investment? If you sow a seed, you will reap a great harvest. Great world leaders invested in themselves, took huge risks and became who they were born to be even after suffering much adversity.
Let me share with you my destiny statement written in three different ways. I have always wanted to be a motivational speaker on a huge level. When I am totally authentic with myself it is my highest dream.
“To use my gifts of courage, motivation and words to inspire the masses to transform their lives, take back their worst fears and fail forward.”
“To use my talents of talk, encouragement and my life story of overcoming fear to empower others to lead the best life they can ever imagine, championing their destiny and overcoming the worst in life to create the best most beautiful outcomes.”
“To create connections, conversations that release a chain reaction in others, an explosion of growth where they completely fall in love with their lives and are compelled to fulfill their destiny.”
3. Once you have your vision secured, then you need to post it on the wall
Your subconscious brain will actually think of ways to manifest your vision. Once you put it out there, then you can begin to manifest it. Recognize that fulfilling your destiny will cost you everything you have in life. On the flip side you must ask yourself what will it cost you to not fulfill your destiny?
“You must decide if you are going to rob the world or bless it with the rich, valuable, potent, untapped resources locked away within you.” – Myles Munroe
We all were born with richness in our soul; often untapped potential locked away. Release it, activate it and set it free. The gifts and talents you were born with were never for you but for everyone around you in life. When you give them away, life and all its glory will come back to you in its highest measure.
