The Next Step Is Yours

This is a story about the potential that lies in each and every one of us. A man died and met Saint Peter at the pearly gates. Realizing that the apostle was wise and knowledgeable, he asked Saint Peter a few questions.

Man: Saint Peter, I have been interested in military history for years. Tell me-who was the greatest general of all time?

Saint Peter: Oh, that's a simple question. It's that man right over there. (he pointed)

Man: You must be mistaken. I knew that man on earth. He was just a common laborer.

Saint Peter: That's right my friend. But he would have been the greatest general of all-IF he had been a general.

Well, this conversation is merely a reminder that you can's stop a pig from wallowing in the mud. In other words, God had created you with natural potential and an internal compass that guides you toward a particular focus for you life. That's only the starting point; the next step is yours.

The genius-Michelangelo

Michelangelo said, "It is only well with me when I have a chisel in my hand." Discover what you are supposed to, and do it! Sometimes when I am in the city...almost invariably, I notice that droves of people who look like they are in a hurry to nowhere. Isn't it darn amazing that so many people devote their entire lives to fields of endeavor that utterly have nothing to with the talent inside of them? It is unbelievable many actually spend their whole lives trying to change the way they were made.

Michelangelo's masterpiece! Damm. He is so darn good!

Stop complaining so much. Every person has their very own, unique blessings, talents and strengths. God gave everyone of us our very own special custom-made gift. It's up to us to unwrap it. Marcus Aurelius said, "Take full account of the excellencies which you possess and in gratitude remember how you would hanker after them if you had them not." So, the next step is yours for the taking!

If you count all your assets,
you'll always show a profit!
