The Power of Attaining the Basics (Blog #4)
September 23, 2011
Do you desire to win a Grammy for your hottest song and have never written a song?
Have you desired to be an author and have never picked up a pen and a notebook and wrote a story?
Do you desire to be a designer and never have drawn an article of clothing?
When is the last time you read the latest news on the desired occupation of your choice? For instance: You want to be a music engineer and you research what it takes to be a music engineer…
Or what about an actress? Have you learned a monologue or two? Have you taken headshots? Have you joined the theatre department at school, church, or your community?
I ask these questions because it amazes me how many messages I get from my loyal supporters asking numerous questions for advise about how to “break into the industry” and then when I pose these question-like-answers, some are amazed because no one ever told them about the power of attaining the basics.
My encouragement to you: Don’t look at where you live, or what you don’t have access too, or who helped who, or why you don’t have something or my favorite one: how will I get to it, him, or that location.
Your gift will make room for you…. simple as that. When you use your gift (whether in human eyes big or small) God honors the fact that you are using what HE gave you. He will open doors that to man makes no sense. How can HE order your steps, if you don’t take one?
