BEGIN TO LIVE UP TO THE MAXIMUM OF YOU! – OJEME ISIOMA
Begin to Live up to the Maximum of YOU!
Hey lovers! It’s your girl, Isioma. First, I must say that I really miss doing this (being at your service)and I miss hearing from you through your comments(that is to say; I would really love to hear from you once you are done reading this!). Secondly, I am extremely sorry that I haven’t published any article in a while. I have been so busy with school. Again, I am sorry.
Well, if this is your first time reading my article, I want you to know that I write to transform. That is to say; most of my write ups entail radical actions from you and by you. So today, I’ll be chatting with you on how to begin to do that thing called YOU! How to live to the fullest expression of yourself! How to be the best version of yourself! Stay with me!
Some days back, I was asking myself who I really am. Asides my skills and the great things I aspire to do, who am I? who are you? All in all, all I could say to myself was; “I am the best version of myself”. And I tell you, this answers all the questions of who we really are, because when we begin to accept ourselves the way we are, and for who we are, even before anyone else does, fall madly in love with ourselves and be grateful for how we have been created; only then can we live to the truest expression of ourselves. Living in the Maximum of You is being all you could, it is maximizing your potentials, it is living beyond your fears. It is allowing fear to inform you and not stop you, it is doing YOU. It is going the extra mile and doing beyond what you wouldn’t have ever imagined yourself doing, it is extending yourself beyond the limitations of your abilities, not investingin mediocrity, to truly discover yourself. In reference to mediocrity; it is living below the standards of your true potentials. It is settling for less, it is accepting the norm, it is the failure to stand out. So, can I tell you that you will not be able to live up to the maximum of you, as long as you dwell in mediocrity? You don’t want to die without anyone knowing that you ever existed, do you? You do not want to leave this planet earth without leaving your finger prints on the walls, do you? You do not want to die and then you’ll have all your dreams, gifts, talents and potentials die with you, do you? Come on! We have to die empty! Your gifts, talents, potentials were not given to you by God for you. They are meant to serve humanity, impact lives and truly be the light. So how would you and I be able to do this without living up to our maximum?
Let me ask you; why have been procrastinating living your dreams? Why have you been procrastinating creating that website? (I guess I am a victim of this too). Why have you been procrastinating publishing that article of yours? Why have you been procrastinating starting your sales? Answer silently to yourself, it’s okay, there is no harm dear. Is it fear? Or the uncertainty of what the future holds for you or whether you can do it or not?Of course, you can, as long as you are willing to try and keep trying! I tell you, none of that mattersanymore, when your faith becomes greater than your fears, and when your passion becomes greater than your challenges and your excuses. And for the record; in the end, there will be no excuse for you notto have lived up to the maximum of YOU, because you are qualified and are the best person for your assignment! You have all it takes to be great, in YOU!
Right on, we shall then dig into the main gist! Remember this is a chat, so it is not a monologue (your comments really matter; 100 percent!). But then, in as much as this is a chat, please do not lose the substance (very crucial). I would be touching two aspects which are; How to discover Yourselfand How to live your dreams, to the maximum of YOU. Let me ask you again. Who are you? If you can answer this perfectly alright, then super beautiful! But if you are the one still racking your brain even up till now, then we’ve got work to do! Discovering yourself is the first step to living in the maximum of YOU, because you cannot really identify with someone or something you do not know.
DISCOVER YOU NOW!
LIVE UP TO YOUR MAXIMUM!
I would leave you with the words of a Great man of Blessed Memory, whom I love so much; Dr. Myles Munroe. He said and I quote; “The greatest threat to being all you could be is the satisfaction who you are”. He also said; “There are many who have buried their talents, gifts and abilities in the cemetery of their last accomplishments.” “Few great things have ever been done within the confinement of the ‘accepted norm’”. Please never fall victim of these things and if you have already, come out of it now by taking action! I greatly believe in you! But do you believe in YOU?!
Again, I plead, please this is not a monologue so I await your feedbacks! It’s Communication, a dialogue at that! I’d be delighted to hear from you reading this. Yes you! So, drop em’ off now! Where was your ‘aha?!’ I would really love to know! I really love you!
