Let these words of wisdom about ability serve as a source of inspiration and motivation for you. In our journey through life, we possess the power to choose our actions. Some of these actions may stem from instinctive responses, while others may result from conscious and calculated decisions.
It’s crucial to understand that our life’s course is not dictated by our abilities but rather by our determination to excel. We should embrace the truth that we are all blessed with life and the absolute uniqueness of our individual souls. Though we are distinct, we are not isolated.
Merely being ‘good’ isn’t sufficient if we have the potential to be ‘great’.
Many of us have encountered individuals gifted with extraordinary natural talents or abilities. Someone may possess inherent advantages such as attractive looks, a privileged upbringing, or remarkable intellect, all of which can provide a path to success. However, it requires character to maintain that success and truly realize one’s potential. We all possess abilities. Our capability defines what we can do, and our motivation fuels the actions we undertake. The capacity to perceive multiple perspectives of a situation equips us with strength and balance.
Let’s celebrate our abilities, aware that we can consistently enhance them over time. May this be our empowering chant: I am capable. I possess the ability. I will allow this ability to radiate brightly.
It’s not enough to be very good if you have the ability to be great.
– Pam Farrel, The 10 Best Decisions a Woman Can Make
I love this quote because it makes me think of the very well (over!?) used simile: “From small acorns grow mighty oaks.” We all have the potential for greatness.
