Welcome to #InspireAfricaProject! Many people are stuck in the rut because they are afraid of taking calculated risks. The floor is overcrowded while the top is virtually empty because only few people are ready to break out of their comfort zones and pursue a worthy goal! Those who play safe will always end up as none-achievers. You cannot stand out in life unless you are ready to accomplish outstanding tasks.
A famous Canadian athlete coach, Ace Percival said that most people, “Athletes as well as none-athlethes are holdouts.That is to say, they are always keeping something in reserve. They do not invest themselves one hundred percent in competition. Because of that fact they never achieve the highest which they are capable.” If you want to become a pacesetter in your generation you must never become a holdout. Go all out in pursuit your vision.
“A famous trapeze artist was instructing his students how to perform in the high-trapeze bar. Finally, having given full explanations and instruction in this skill, he told them to demonstrate their ability. One student, looking up at the insecure perch upon which he must perform, was suddenly filled with fear. He froze completely. He had a terrifying vision of himself falling to the ground. He couldn’t move a muscle, so deep was his fright. “I can’t do it! I can’t do it!” he gasped.
The instructor put his arm around the boy’s shoulder and said, “Son, you can do it, and I will tell you how.” Then he made a statement which is of inestimable importance. It is one of the wisest remarks you will ever hear. He said, “Throw your heart over the bar and your body will follow.” I believe anyone that wants to stand out in life should write this statement in his or her heart. If your heart can cross the bar, your body will definitely follow!
The heart is a symbol of creativity. Fire the heart with where you want to go and what you want to be. Get it so deeply fixed in the center of your heart that you’ll not take no for an answer, then your entire personality will follow where your heart leads. To throw your heart over the bar means to throw your faith over your difficulty, throw your affirmation over every barrier, throw your visualization over your obstacles.
One of my greatest discoveries in life is that whatever your heart agrees to accomplish, and you have complete conviction that nothing can stop you from achieving it, unseen forces will be unleashed by Divinity to help you actualize it. If you can conquer yourself and fear, you can attain the highest height in life. No wonder Sir Edmund Hillary, the man who conquered Mount Everest said, “It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.”
I believe that the very day we stop looking at our challenges with magnifying glass we will go far in life. If you look at a cat with fear, it will definitely turn into a leopard or even a lion. Stop doubting your ability to accomplish that task, throw your heart over the bar with the eyes of the mind, and you will see yourself on the other side.
I strongly believe that there is no mountain you cannot conquer if you can suffocate your doubt with possibility mentality. There is no problem or challenges you cannot overcome if you can look at it with the eyes of faith. Faith is believing in advance what will only make sense in reverse. The Israelite soldiers could not face Goliath because they were looking at him with natural eyes. But when David appeared, he looked at Goliath through the eyes of God and told him that he will feed his fresh to the birds of the air! Just one stone from his sling, Goliath was on the floor!
Darwin P. Kingsley said; “You have powers you never dreamed of. You can do things you never thought you could do. there are no limitations in what you can do except the limitations of your own mind.” Doug Larson equally opined that; “Some of the world’s greatest feats were accomplished by people not smart enough to know they were impossible.”
Always remember that you have the capacity to overcome every adversity that is harassing you. By the way, adversity is the advertising agency whose job is to advertise the cities that are crying for expression on the inside of you! Welcome to the world of unlimited possibilities!
