“The great tragedy of the average man is that he goes to his grave with his music still in him.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
When you come to know who you are in God and discover what you are wired up by God to do you will find success and satisfaction. Learn to look inwards. Looking around will get you nowhere. You are loaded! Discover your gifts and talents. It’s your inside advantage – the very key to the riches, the success and the fulfilment you’ve been looking for. All you need do is discover it, develop it and display it.
An ancient legend has it that at a time in the history of man, society so abused wisdom that the council of wise men decided to hide the secret of happiness and success from mankind. A council meeting was convened. The following discussion ensued:
First Wiseman: “Let us bury it deep down in the earth.”
Chief Wiseman: “If we bury it in the earth, man will learn how to dig deep and will one day discover it.”
Second Wiseman: “Let’s carry it to the top of the highest mountain.”
Chief Wiseman: “If we take it to the top of the highest mountain, man will learn how to climb to the top of the mountains and discover it and use it for himself.”
First Wiseman: “Let us sink it deep in the ocean.”
Chief Wiseman: “If sunk into the deepest ocean, man will learn how to dive in and will one day discover it.”
After a long silence the Chief Wiseman said, “Here is what we’re going to do. We will hide it deep in the inside of man himself, for he will never think to look for it there.”
Today, are you not still running to and fro, digging, climbing and diving, searching for something you already possess within yourself? Think about it. YOU WILL SUCCEED!
