Know your fire

Have you ever stopped to think about that one thing in your life that just comes naturally to you? Something that you don’t have to try too hard to be amazing at, something you can maybe hope to go very far in? A hobby, a skill that just allows you to be in your zone. Something you can be your true self doing. It can be writing for some, singing or playing an instrument for others. It can also just be as simple as talking to people. And if something from your life has come to mind while reading this, I’m very proud to be the one to tell you that you KNOW YOUR FIRE!

You have looked deep within yourself to know what skill there is that comes naturally to you. You have thought of your weaknesses and your strengths and have found that one thing that sets you apart from others. If you are pursuing a career that does not incorporate that particular skill of yours, I would like you to reconsider. To find a way to do your work with that one bit helping you. Because once you have your fire on your side, you will always be really far ahead in the competition.

If somehow you feel as if you do not know what it is that you can are good at, take some time off to get to know yourself. Because only when you know of what you’re capable of can you truly hope to achieve even a fragment of it. Think of your activities of the day, think of what brings you joy, think of all the tasks that were easy for you, and those that were not. Soon not only will you be acquainted with all that you can excel at but also things that have been holding you back. And only once you know and understand them can you hope to improve on them

A ferocious animal lies within you, waiting to be set free. Waiting to tread a path of greatness and only you can take it there.
