The very key to knowing my purpose is discovering and celebrating my personal identity
Since my secondary School days I do allow people to tell me who I am rather than identifying and celebrating myself and often times I do realize that I have to take myself as I am. This book really tells me that even my weakness is needed as part of the victuals to fulfill my purpose.
Purpose does not start with me, nor does it ends With me, it is multi-generational
Whatever I have had been freely given to me and it should not end with me. I have to pass it on. (I learnt more of this in Passing it on by Myles Munroe)
I may have noticed slight similarities between myself and others but I am the original. I am the only one and this would be throughout history because I’m unique.
I have realized that whenever I see anything in me that is also in others, I should not feel insecure because I’m the ORIGINAL and I reflect God to others in a way that none could reflect either presently or in years to come
One of the greatest gift I can receive is exposure and exposure doesn’t come by chasing it but by remaining faithful in my present plowing
This book “identity” has taught me a great lesson that no matter to what extent I’m enlightened, Exposure for the next level cannot come to me if I’m not faithful in my current dealings.
Marketing is the stewardship of our service, gift, talent, abilities, product and resources- exposing them to people who will benefit from their use while manipulation is trying to become someone through manufacturing exposure.
This has taught me that all that manipulation will bring is disgrace.
Now that our generation likes to form rather than performing and if there’s a value from manipulating there’s much more value in manufacturing , manifesting and marketing good values.
