We’re All Meant To Fly

We're all meant to fly, but we often forget we have wings.

We all have gifts, talents, and dreams, and with those, we are meant to fly in our own individual way. Since I’m a musician and music lover, I’m going to use two masters as an example, Beethoven and Mozart.

With each musician, we were given some of the most wonderful music that we all still enjoy today, but what if one of those musicians didn’t listen to his heart? Then that beautiful music would have never been available for us all to enjoy. I know what you might be thinking, but if it was never created, we wouldn’t even have known it existed. That maybe true, but just think how richer the music world is today, for us all being able to enjoy their beautiful compositions.

Let me give one more example. What if C.S. Lewis or J.R.R. Tolkien had never decided to write? Then we wouldn't have had the pleasure to enjoy their most treasured creations like 'The Lord Of The Rings' or 'The Chronicles Of Narnia.'

Now maybe you’re thinking, but I’m not a musician or a writer, I don’t have any gifts, talents, or even dreams to share. I’d quickly tell you that is where you are wrong. Every one has gifts, talents, and dreams to share.

Let’s take Oprah for instance. She had a dream to talk on television about many different subject matters that affect us all, and she had a gift knowing how to ask the right questions to get the right answers. In fact, because of this gift and talent she has, many of her shows have helped, as well as inspired, many of us in our own situations we were going through in life.

Another who had a dream was Tony Robbins. He had a dream to help as many people as he could, and he learned many techniques and tools for the mind to be able to do just that. His gift and talent was the ability to present those techniques in such an understandable way, and in doing this, he has helped many of us in being able to refocus, rethink, and even change our own self-sabotaging beliefs.

These are just a few examples of individuals who decided to spread their wings and fly with a dream they had to share their gifts and talents with the rest of us. I know that my life is richer because they did.

So quit making excuses as I did for many years. You’ve got your own dreams, your own gifts, and talents. So spread out your wings and fly. Share your gifts, talents, and dreams with the rest of us, because only you can.
