2018 SHM WISDOM TITBITS. WEEK 5. PERSPECTIVE IS HUMBLING

This week, let us talk about PERSPECTIVE.

I am sure you are a confident, self-aware, goal getting person and I thank God for your life. You may even be a person on the up, not yet there, but going somewhere to manifest. I equally bless His holy name for you.

However, do you know that for many of us folk, our achievement(s) can be our greater barrier to achieving more? See, it is natural, isn’t it, for a ‘self-made’ person to look down on another who ‘has not arrived’? And for someone who is less successful to think those at the top ‘have life made’?

And that has led many into emotions that are very destructive; such as pride, anger, resentment etc. And these emotions continue to tear family and friends apart.

But I would like to suggest a solution if any of us is trapped in this. It is an exercise (don’t worry, you should not break a sweat) 😃.

Go outdoors, find an open space (good luck with that city peeps😜), and lie down. Look up, and what would you see? Vast expanse of the sky, vast beyond the limit of your gaze! Then remind yourself that above the sky you can see are other layers of stratosphere you cannot see; and above that another layer, and so on and on! Hallelujah!

That shows you how every human being is, in the grand scheme of things. Infinitesimal! A speck of dust! This should calm every ego, and soothe every weary soul. Perspective allows human beings to see that there are bigger, better things beyond ourselves, and should bring the wise to this realisation – all our world is really a stage! Apologies, oga Shakespeare.

You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

    Good advice ore. However, those who should would not because they either see it as either a strength or an excuse.
