During a Valedictory speech in High school, my school principal had given us this parting shot:
"My dear boys and girls, to your own selves, be true in life."
My dear reader, I am persuaded that that parting shot is still very relevant in our day today. Following the divine trajectory of your own life could be very challenging in a world that is full of competing distractions. Imitating the norm seem normal and convenient, copying the popular approach seem to be the easy way out, but kindly remember that fulfillment is never found in the school of imitation. It only comes when you discover and pursue that sense of calling in your area of assignment.
Sam Walton, founder of the Walmart stores excelled above his contemporaries because he chose to change the norm of retail business in America through the concept of discounted pricing. Actor, Chris Pratt said:
"Just be yourself and forget all of the stuff you read in 'GQ' magazine."
Why so? What you read in magazines is good. But being yourself is better. For being yourself is the real deal of life. #KeepAdvancing!
"…For this cause came I into the world" (John 18:37).
Father in the name of Jesus, I boldly declare that I will follow your leading for my life. I receive grace from you today, to master the art of being myself in Christ Jesus. Amen.
