Whatever the enemy meant for evil God do turn it around for good.
Jane walked into her bosses office to carry out some assigned task and within a few minutes her boss Mark started playing music very loudly even dancing to it, Jane as amused as she was couldn’t resist to state that the music playing was the one needed in the store, immediately Jane”s boss snapped at her,” you have been saying that for so long,why don’t you take the initiative and add the music on the disk so that it can be played”
Jane stared back in shock, Mark continued” I want to put the music on the disk but i do not know how,but that’s the difference between us,I am not a follower, you will be a follower but I am going to learn to put the music on there!”
” I am not a follower” Jane grumbled turning away from her bosses spiteful gaze,Mark continued, “I am sure you know how its done, you are smart enough,went to College, so you must research how it is done and not just stand by!”
Jane felt she could slap the smirk off his face, she felt so disrespected yet she felt speechless as if the words were some what true,she left his office rather dejected as Mark sat at his desk laughing.
She saw him as an evil agent sent by the enemy to put her down, Jane was on a road to self growth and motivation, convincing her self that she was strong,better than she was months ago and on her way to being a leader. She prayed in her heart binding all his negativity against her, declaring that she was great, a leader not a follower and she was going to make it in spite of how she presently felt. The words Mark said was stuck on replay in her mind, was that how she was being seen? She wanted so desperately to change,his words began to add fuel to her hunger to change,improve and prove him wrong.
Minutes after she still sat struggling with a disturbed state of thought, and then she saw an email from Mark, he stated that he wanted the others to show her how the music is uploaded to the disk, and he encouraged her to learn new things as knowledge is power.He further stated that he wanted her to teach him when shes done.
Jane smiled as she realized that her boss only wanted the best for her, he saw her potential and therefore refused to settle for her mediocrity, he knew she could do it, she just had to believe in her self first.
Self motivation is good, we often convince ourselves that we are good enough until we are given the test to prove ourselves, sometimes we let fear cripple our potential, we are afraid of being our great selves so we live below our expectations just to get by,shyly unnoticed. but i am here to encourage someone including myself that we were not born to be ordinary individuals, we were not created just to exist work a 8 to 5 job and just make ends meet. If you were created just to exist God wouldn’t keep sending people to motivate you to try and work harder to become better.
You are great, an extraordinary person with a unique task,chosen to change the world and make a difference. You seek to grow and make positive changes in your life because God is going to use you as a changing tool, you are a natural born leader,stop fighting your greatness,embrace it,become it.
