Are You Willing to Find Your Greatness?

Topics: , , ,

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...

  • Greatness lies within each and every one of you. It’s just a matter of how deep you’re willing to dig to find it. There’s an unlimited amount of untapped potential flowing through your heart, your mind and your spirit just waiting to be released, so that you may rise to the next level. You possess talent and skills that you haven’t even begun to discover, because it’s in growth that you will find true enlightenment. It is in growth that we discover unbounded possibilities, but you must be at liberty to grow; free from fear, uncertainty, and worry. Never underestimating the power you have within you to achieve this greatness.

    You have what it takes! There’s no situation, no difficulty, and no pain too great for you to bear. If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that on this journey you will face obstacles, disappointments, and doubt. It matters not how or when. True enlightenment lives in the why. Why are you facing this difficulty? What are you to gain from this experience? What lessons are here for you to learn? Who are you supposed to be as a result of this? Every event that occurs in your life is custom designed for you. It’s up to you to fight for that person on the other side of growth or difficulty. I guarantee you it’s worth it!

    You must believe deep down in your heart that you were created for a divine purpose. You can’t be afraid to go on the journey of seeking the truth about why you’re here. I promise that you were sent to this earth as a gift, as light, as love. Be mindful of that! Be cautious of the words you speak, the actions you take, and the beliefs you stand for. Be cautious of the lasting impressions that you will leave on others. Be the gift that you were meant to be. Discover your purpose.

    There is a higher power that dwells deep inside you, and because you are so magnificent in who you are, the universe takes residence in you so that it may be expressed to the world. Take heed to that invaluable fact, knowing the worth of your mental, physical, and spiritual self. Only feeding the body and the mind that which will nurture, cleanse, and stimulate growth. Accomplish these adorning tasks with love, respect, and constant affection for who you are. Be in love with you, the person you are today! Love and treat yourself with great pride, understanding the great deal of value you bring to this world.

    And above all, live brilliantly! Bless everything and everyone you touch. Even in your dark moments exude what I like to call “Brilliant Resilience.” Learn, grow, and become even better than you were before, but do so in a way that shines and inspires others. Show them what true purpose looks like. Because with it nothing can stop you.

        Where there is “bad” there is “good” only seek out the good, only give the good your attention. When the negative energy in your life seems to be building up, just know that the positive energy is close by. Work through it, the GOODNESS is so close!!!

        Failure is only a figment of your imagination. An emotion that you have been trained to look at in a negative way. Look at failure as an opportunity to gain knowledge, wisdom, and expertise. Look at is as an opportunity to learn was does and doesn’t work.

        There is nothing! Nothing! That can stop you. Once upon a time after a bad relationship, restraining orders, and extremely harsh circumstances I turned my life around. By believing! So believe my dear, believe that greatness lies deep within… but it takes going through “life” to get there.

      Ms. Lena, your words are very inspirational. There the truth, that many of us have not comprehended yet within our souls spirit nor minds. Throughout this world, there are so much evil, & trials & tribulations that many face on a everyday basis that one fail to look, & feel within: Let alone believe within. Thank you for being a voice for many. Thank you for being someone’s source of transition into becoming a better individual. It’s a blessing!!

      Thank you so much for your beautiful words. This is the exact message that I needed today. I reached a point today where I just felt so incredibly challenged and overwhelmed by life that all I wanted to do was curl up in a ball and cry. When I read your words I sure did start crying, but it was because I felt like you were speaking right to me. It was so comforting and amazing. The timing of this message could not have been more perfect. Thank you so much!
