Achievement The Way I see it Part 2

In part one of this topic we established that the first step toward personal achievement is personal discovery or self discovery. How can we discover who we are? There are several ways to this. Our Lord Jesus Christ said a tree is known by his fruits. Fruits are your characters; the outward expressions of your life. If for example you are constantly expressing compassion and emotion toward the poor and needy, this is a pointer to your assignment. My advice to you this week is to examine your drives, your desires, your passions and your sadness; these might be the pointers to your potentials and what you can accomplish.

Another way to self discovery is to go back to your source or ask your creator. Note that I did not mention God because some people can’t relate to that semantic. But everybody knows there is a source or creator for everything. A seed gives birth to a tree. An Engineer builds a bridge or a car. A potter moulds a pot. Therefore it is a fact that a creator creates humans. I don’t care who you are or what you call yourself; if you are denying the existence of God or a creator, you are denying your existence because a pot cannot exists without a potter. And that makes you a hypocrite or a FOOL. Sorry for the deviation, so just like the potter determines the design and the function of a pot, God has designed us for a particular functions or assignments, so go back to him. Ask him in prayers; search his manual which is the bible. Once you discover God, you will discover yourself.

God made us in his image. He is a spirit. And we are spirits with unlimited abilities, power and wisdom. God is a creator. Our destinies are to create something, a school, a business, factories, a kingdom, and an empire. Or you are design to give something; joy to the sorrow, home to homeless, prosperity to the poor, health to the sick, eyes to the blind etc. If your father is God, you also are god. Stop waiting, arise now and begin a journey to your throne. Your mission is to be a co-creator with God. Ask Him today for what He has designed you to create or to do. You are not designed for a job alone or to live from pay check to pay check. This may be you beginning but it must not be your end. Awake you sons of the most high to fulfill your assignments.

Achievement The Way I see It

To achieve means to attain, to fulfill or to realize something. So achievement starts with a goal, a vision or an end in mind. Therefore to achieve means to attain your goal or vision.

The question now is what do you want to achieve? The reason for this question is this; you can only achieve what you have ability to do. For example, what can bird do? Bird has the ability to fly. The goal of a bird should be to fly the farthest into the sky. The day the bird can do that, it has achieved it goal.

The point I am making is that the design of an object determines the function or what the object can do. So the first step toward personal achievement is to discover who you are, then you will discover what you are designed or wired to do. The bird knows it has been wired to fly. Through training from the mother bird, hard work and patient the bird will fly, but no amount of training, hard work or patient can make a bird to swim like fish.

Take a time today to discover who your are, then you will discover what you are designed or wired to do. Afterward, acquire the best training you can afford, do your best and with time you will be the next achiever; another man who has done what he has the ability or potential to do.
