The Power Of You

One of my favorite quotes is from the movie Spiderman when Uncle Ben looks at Peter and says, “With great power comes great responsibility.”

Too often we look at others talents, abilities and resources and say, “If I had what they had, oh the great things I could do.”  All the while, we fail to do the best we can with what we have been entrusted with.

I also love Zig Ziglar’s quote “You are the only person on earth who can use your ability. It’s an awesome responsibility.”  This is a huge truth that too many people often overlook!

You have been entrusted with the resources that you have. Don’t waste an ounce of energy or a second of time wishing you had more, or something different.

Spend each moment of each day doing all you can with what you have, and do it to the best of your ability. There will be people within your arms reach today that need what only you can give them.

Fear of failing will keep many of you from reaching out. I’ll let you in on a little secret: Failing isn’t when you try and don’t succeed; failing is when you don’t even try.”

You are the best you there is in this world. There is no one with your combination of personality, values, giftedness and life experience. You are the one and only!

So, be intentional everyday of your life and look for opportunities to use what you have to help those around you.  Your resources are very powerful for those around you in need.

Remember, with great power comes great responsibility!
