Success Articles > Take a Stand And Stop Sitting On Your Gifts


If you are sitting on your gifts you are not serving yourself, others or the world the way you could be. Each of us has amazing gifts that we were born with. And there is someone who needs what you have to offer.

If you have been sitting on your gifts it is time for you to activate them and change the lives of others and possibly the world. So many times we may not realize how significant our gifts are, we may not realize how valuable what we have is to the life of someone else, and we may not be aware of the fact that we are not using our gifts fully. Your gifts that are inside of you deserve to be tapped into and unleashed. The last thing you want to do is die with your gifts still in you.

How are you using your gifts to make a difference? Are you doing everything you can to serve others? Have you ever wondered how you can make a bigger impact in the lives of others? Do you ever think that you are the missing piece to the destiny of someone else? Or do you ever secretly think there has got to be more to life than this? When you tap into and unleash your gifts that can make you feel empowered and fulfilled in a way that words can't describe.

Is there anything you can do to get on the path to using your gifts to help enhance the lives of others? Yes, there is. Have you considered just stepping out in faith and doing what your heart desires as it relates to sharing your gifts? If you have now is the time to do what you were created to do. You have the power to stand up and be the change you want to see in humanity and the world.

Not to sound morbid, but if you suddenly found out you only had a few months to live what would you wish you would have done to help other people? What legacy would you want to leave? What gifts would you want to contribute to the world? That is a question I ask myself often. And it gives me a boost of inspiration and motivation to unleash my gifts, step out in a bigger way to serve others and think differently.

One of my main goals in life is when I leave this earth not to take my gifts with me. I want to utilize my gifts in every way that I can, and I hope you do too. I was blessed with a wonderful mother who unfortunately suddenly passed away at the age of 51. Even though she left an amazing legacy, she still had so many gifts still in her. Often when I feel like I want to hold a gift inside I imagine my mother saying "Go for it while you can." And I just go for it, without worrying about whether it will fail or succeed. I just go with the flow of my heart and what feels right for me, and I have faith and trust that God would never inspire me to do something that was not going to change lives, and the world.

So many times we never step out to share our gifts with anyone else because we are worried that we won't be successful, or we are afraid that we will make a fool out of ourselves, or concerned about what others will think. But don't think about all of the reasons you should not share your gifts and think about all of the reasons you should. If you only had few months left would any of those things really matter? Probably not.

I truly believe that there is someone, somewhere who needs just what your gifts have to offer. So are you ready to take action by standing up and declaring that you will not die with your gifts still in you? Are you ready to stop thinking about sharing your gifts with others, and start taking the necessary steps to get your gift out into the lives of others and into the world?

It is not too late to start activating your gifts. How do I know? Because you are breathing and reading this article, so you still have an opportunity to gift the world with your amazing gifts. So why not embrace and seize the opportunity? You deserve it and so does those who you are called to serve.
