Each one of us has our own unique gifts to offer this world. God built us with a specific passion, backed up and supported by strengths and abilities that make us tick.  Have you discovered what your passion is?  If you have identified what yours is, have you worked to get skilled in it, so you can earn a good living at it?

When we can overlap the three realities of 1) What we love to do, 2) What we are good at, and 3) What we can get paid well to do, we will be in a very sweet spot.  We are born with passions for, and interests in, certain things. We are also built with basic abilities, strengths, and skills to do what we love. However, we must work to build, refine and sharpen our skills in order to do the thing we love at the highest level possible in order to attract the attention of other people who will pay us for doing that thing we love.  It is not enough to just have a passion.

I read the Book of Proverbs, in the Bible, every morning to get “readjusted” and start my day with some wisdom.  Today I read Proverbs 22:29 “Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will serve before kings, he will not serve before obscure men.” 

When you develop a roadmap for your life, you’ll get to do what you love doing… for a living.  Monday mornings sure are a heck of a lot more fun that way!
