You Are Destined For Greatness!

Encourager-In-Chief: October 21st, 2020

Don’t miss your destiny.

Because most of us are raised to be humble, we sometimes tend to think small and dream small. But that does not mean our impact needs to be small. Often, childhood setbacks and repeated disappointments cause us to believe that we are not meant for greatness. However, we have within us the ability to make monumental strides if we have the courage to take them.

Frequently, our adversities keep us humble so when we achieve our greatest victories, we appreciate them more and don’t let them go to our heads. I wound up in the Guinness Book of World Records for bass fishing as a result of trying to get over a broken heart. I can’t believe how much that one turning point could alter the entire course of my life.

Let’s face it, nobody likes failures. The key is not to be defeated by our setbacks but rather, use them as stepping stones to our success. As the saying goes, “every stumble keeps you humble.” Within every failure there is a lesson that will lead you to greater experience and better judgment.

Our successes become much more significant when contrasted with the magnitude of the struggles we had to overcome in order to achieve them. In other words, the higher the mountain, the more euphoric the celebration at the top. The lesson to take away from this is that you are going to face many challenges in your life. How you handle those challenges will determine the extent of your greatness. Remember, the biggest turning point in your life occurs when you decide not to give up on a dream just because it becomes difficult.

That’s what God does. He breaks us exactly where we need to be broken.
