There are people in your life right now who are probably aware of what you are doing. They have seen you going up and down, left and right, every day. They have been informed by your actions that you are pursing your purpose. They see you want to make an impact, change the world in a way. They know you are passionate about your passions, crazy about your talents, creativity, gifts. They know you got some amazing ideas, magnate ideas. They can see a hungry gentle soul ready to take the world by storm.
They know your name: The
Talented Poet. The Talented Speaker. The Talented Writer. The Talented Rapper.
The Talented Musician. The Talented Actor. The Talented Actress. The Talented. ……you
fill in the blank space! They see you need something, something to help
achieve your dreams. They know how to
get it. Some have it, some don’t. Some wish to help, some don’t want to.
Those who would like to help fear you blooming bigger than them. So they are just
watching you hustle. They are watching you suffer. They are just watching. You
wish they could teach you how to get it, but they are not. You wish they could
lend you a helping hand, but they are not. They will not.
And you too your eyes are so fixed on. You see them as your last hope and treat them as gods. You feel you need them. You need help. We all need help at some point in our
lives. But if no one is ready to help you, then help yourself. Because the
people you are trusting that they would help you knows you need them, but they
won’t help you.
is not as if they have not seen you trying much as you can to climb up that
mountain, overcome that challenge, or achieve the desires of your heart or break that addiction.
Believe me, they have. They have witnessed your movements. They have seen a dreamer. They know you have a dream. They are watching how you are going to climb up to the
mountain top without their ladder, without their support, without their push.
They wanna see how you are going to fry your egg without their oil and frying
pan and their gas cooker.
They want to see how you can get to your
promised land without their aircraft, their train, their ship, their car. You
know why you have not climbed up yet? You know why you have not gotten to your
promised land? It is because your eyes are still on the ladder they have, and
by ladder I mean, the encouragement you need, the money you need, the
opportunities you are looking for, the aircraft you need to fly you, the ship
that you need to carry you, and the position they have but are not using to
push you. That is heaping up bad blood, which your body, soul, and spirit does
not need in you.
It is upsetting you that they can lend you their ladder yet they are just watching and giggling when you are there struggling each and every day. They are your uncles, Aunties, fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, bosses, workmates, and classmates. You are growing weaker and weaker, because they have seen you hustling yet they are not helping you, forgetting that, there is a ladder in you stronger than the ladder they have that you think you need. I said there is a ladder in you stronger than the ladder they have that you think you need.
That is your problem. That
is why you have not climbed up to the mountaintop. That is why you are still in
the valley.If you are going to climb
up the mountain you need to take your eyes of the ladder they have and use what
you have to start climbing. What am I saying?
If you are going to defy
the odds, you need to take your eyes off your circumstances. Take your eyes off
what others have, which you believe you need in order to succeed. If certainly
you need what they have, God will provide you your own. You just need to stop
focusing them, and use what you have at where you are.Today, if only you can
take your eyes off all those ladders you see around you, and bring out the
ladder in you, you will see yourself climbing higher than those people you are seeing.
Do not act as if you cannot climb up that mountain without their ladder. Believe you can, and you will.
There is a ladder in every human being. It is an unseen ladder. You cannot touch it, but you can activate it by faith. Activate your ladder today. How do you activate that ladder? Very simple. Believe that you got a ladder in you. Believe you are going to get to the top. Believe in yourself and in your dream. Take a step and you will see a ladder show up.
You know what it is?
It's time to climb up that mountain. Time to overcome that challenge.
It's time to achieve that dream.
It's time to bring out your ladder.
You got a ladder in you!
Happy climb, Champ!
