What is your greatest gift?
We all love a good movie, and one of the most powerful movie structures is
the "Hero's Journey."
Spiderman, Dorothy, Luke, Neo, Harry Potter, all these characters have the
same kind of path.
That is they all pretty normal dudes, (or gals) living normal lives, and then
something takes them (usually against their will) somewhere and forces them
to step up their game.
Luke has to defeat Vader, Dorothy has to overcome the fake Wizard, Harry
has to kill Voldemort, etc.
Why are these stories so popular?
Because they represent our lives.
From the time we are born (actually a few hours before) we face the same
structure, over and over again.
We're cruising along, safe, (and also kinda bored) and then something pulls
us out of our comfort zone.
We pretty much HAVE to learn new skills. Going to school for the first time, making friends, getting a job, starting a
family, becoming an established member of your community, all
follows the same path.
Leaving behind your comfort zone and moving further out into the world.
Those stories, books, and movies speak to us on a deep level.
They help us remember who we are.
Now, I'm not saying you need to grab a cape and start beating up bad guys.
That might get you arrested.
But if you're playing it safe, you're not living up to your potential.
If you believe in any kind of a Creator, you can't think He or She put us here
so we could be safe.
We were put here to continuously move forward.
Expand our social circle.
Expand our vision.
Create dreams and MAKE them come true.
So, what is your greatest gift?
When you're long gone, what would you like your greatest contribution to
What would you like to create?
What service would you like to provide?
How will you help people?
Deep within you lies the answer.
