020. Rich In Your Gift
Happy Tuesday kids! Today’s TIP is “RICH IN YOUR GIFT!”
“Who you are is a gift. By not sharing who you really are with the world, you are robbing them of something they need.”
Most of the time, when we hear the word “rich” we imagine a mansion in the hills and a private jet. That is not the kind of “rich “ I'm talking about! I'm talking about the kind of rich that already exists within us. Our unique gift. It is amazing and wonderful and at the same time does us absolutely no good if we keep it inside and never share it with the world!
It's like that country song…you can’t take it with you when you go!
“You better take some time to live and love before you get too old. All the treasures in this world don't mean a thing when they lay me low...Cause you can't take it with you when you go”
And yet another country song popping in my head…
“Don’t know why everybody wanna die rich…Never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch”
So if you didn’t know…now you know. I love country! Ok, I am getting sidetracked, but you get the point here! Besides “things” we can’t take with us when we go, we also don’t want to be buried with our gift inside of us.
We become RICH by sharing our unique gift with the world!
I urge you to start using that unique gift you were given to connect with others! If you have an amazing voice, share it with the world! If you are the best hugger in the world, give more hugs…people need them!
Some people I have talked with, athletes in particular, feel like they lose their identity when they stop playing sports, or are no longer part of a team. I was one of those people. Then, I realized, I can still share my gift in another way. I can go around to schools and speak to student athletes. There is always a way we can continue to use our gifts. It may not always look the same, but we can reinvent ourselves using our purpose!
Please do not let FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real) hold you back from sharing your gift with the world!
In closing, I wanted to share my favorite quote by Marianne Williamson.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Let you light shine friends!! Become rich by sharing your gift, not hiding it from the world!
With love and gratitude,
