We’ve heard it often enough: Life Isn’t Easy.
And in many situations, that’s true.
But not always.
Some things in life do come easy. After all, not one of us is the same. No two human beings are genetically identical. And no two human beings will act exactly the same in every situation of their lives. Depending upon our make-up as distinctive human beings, some things are easier for us than they are for another.
I remember a statement my mother once made after hearing about a friend’s divorce. The friend had said, “Marriage is too hard. I think it might be unnatural.” My mother’s response was the opposite. “Marriage comes easy to me. It’s the most natural thing in the world,” she said, because she had made a ’til death do us part’ commitment.
And commitment is the first step to success.
Is there something that comes easy to you?
Put your efforts there.
Sometimes its our fears, inhibitions, and even our jealousies, that can keep us from being ourselves. We even try to ACT like another, rather than the self we see in the mirror.
Remember the old adage–Be yourself?
Most would agree. Yet some of us don’t follow what we are good at. Instead, we aim to do what someone else is good at.
Within each of us are unique abilities, things we like to do, so they come easier to us. Pay attention to those. We have each been made by an omniscient God who knew what He was doing when He made us. And each one of us are equipped for a purpose in His plan. Let’s work on our purpose, not someone else’s.
