Are you living life to your full potential?

“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
 –Albert Einstein

God has created us so uniquely, each person intrinsically different from the next. Our gifts and strengths could be someone else’s weaknesses. Our own shortcomings could be where the next person flourishes. So why is it that we exhaust ourselves to the point of defeat when we cannot do something as well as the other person; or if we don’t look the way we think we ought to look? Why is it that we have developed a self-deprecating attitude of self-pity, all the while our gifts are being WASTED. Do not waste your innate potential for greatness because you are too consumed with negative thoughts. You are who you are for a purpose, for Gods purpose, because He created you to be USED to your full potential.  

You can now make a choice: Do you want to live in the shadow of someone else’s full potential? OR do you want to break out of your own self-inflicted misery and live a life boasting in the gifts God has equipped you with. 

“For what gives you the right to make such a judgment? What do you have that God hasn't given you? And if everything you have is from God, why boast as though it were not a gift?” 1 Corinthians 4:7
