What We Were Born To Do

“You were born to do something great with your life.”

-Ed Mylett

Today’s quote by author, podcaster and speaker Ed Mylett is one that for some needs to serve as a daily reminder or mantra as we all were born with the opportunity to do something great with our lives. It is important that we recognize this first and foremost, otherwise in my opinion we are living a rather mediocre life. Greatness is already within each of us. Sometimes we just need to tap into it or have someone who loves and supports us show us where that greatness lies. Now remember that greatness does not mean fame and fortune because those are only self serving goals and to me in order to exhibit greatness it is the result of what you do for others in helping them to become their best selves. For me I will never be the type of handy man to fix things that break at the house nor will I ever land my own HGTV show for my decorating decor. Believe me….I know my limitations. However, I have come to the realization that I can be the handy man in helping others when they feel broken and need someone’s shoulder to lean on. There is a reason for my serve, lead and inspire Twitter handle as these three things are three things that I can do great at each and everyday for someone else. That is where my greatness lies. Where does yours?

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards improving your self awareness?
