Check Your Ego At The Door

Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful. — Unknown

We all know people who lack ambition. I am assuming that, if you are reading this blog, you are not one of those people. To take it even further, I believe that everyone who reads this blog regularly will reach some level of recognizable success. And that is great. But always be mindful that you didn’t do it yourself. God gave you the talent, along with the support system and challenges necessary to develop that talent to a point of recognizable success. Think about how those three gifts have molded and strengthened you over your lifetime.

Some people don’t just want success. They want the fame too. Even then, you have to be grateful because people are choosing to support you.

In short, though I’m sure you will work for your successes, never say you deserve them. You were fortunately blessed with them. Enjoy them and give thanks where due.
