Every human being was created to accomplish something specific that no one else can accomplish. It is crucial for you to understand this truth: you were designed to be known for something special. You were meant to do something that will make you unforgettable. You were born to do something that the world will not be able to ignore. It may be in your church, your community, your state or beyond.

So, if you want to be great, you have to serve your gift to the world. To do that then, you must first discover your gift.
Jesus Christ; the greatest man who ever walked upon this earth, was teaching His disciples one day when He overheard them arguing about greatness. He didn’t discourage them about it, rather He said, “if anyone desires to be Great, he must become a slave to everyone and a servant to everyone”(Matthew 20:26 – 28).
This means that if anyone desires to be great, he must deploy himself to the world. That is, if you want to be great,serve your gift to the world.
Tiger Woods never went to a school of greatness, never took a course on leadership,never took a course on marketing, or supervisory but he is influencing the world. He simply found a gift and serve it to the world.
When you find your gift, the world will find you.
Mother Teresa never went to a college, she was just a high school teacher in India. She left her job because she found her gift; helping the poor; she refined it and that made her great.
So if you want to be a failure, be an imitation. But you were not born to be an imitation of other people. You were born to be yourself, so be original. Don’t be a jack of all trades; a master of none.
Remember, that succeeding in what you were never asked to do is living a wasted life.
In summary, you were created and wired for one thing, and it is in that one thing that lies your success, wealth and legacy.
If you commit yourself to being productive, after a while you won’t need titles nor an introduction in an event.
Albert Einstein said “only one who devotes himself to a course with his whole strength and soul can be a true master.” For this reason mastery demands all of a person.
