How about we all focus and perform only what we were created and wired for? Oh how unhealthy it is for me to imitate another man and begin to do what I was not meant for.
You see, just because my friend Segun Emmanuel Olugbemi is a wonderful drummer doesn’t mean I should start drumming when I do not have the gift, because my brother Elisha Jnr is eloquent and he is a good spoken word artist shouldn’t prompt me to begin poetry. Just because Reuben Indiya Cloudig is a web designer and programming expertise shouldn’t compel me to begin all he does or may be because my friend Glorie Shekwosa Dauda is a good encourager and writer should not prompt me to do same as she does. Also I shouldn’t compel myself to become a teacher just because my friend and Manager, Samuel Bwari is a good teacher.

If I imitate my friends then, my life will be in shamble because leaving what I was created for and doing what I envy and was not created for means I am sending myself to a pit of eternal confusion. Every individual has a gift/talent. God has put into every man at least a gift and that is what each man is expected to perform. This is because comparison kills, it blind ones eyes to see that God is fine tuning something out of your life cause you’re just busy counting the blessings of your neighbor.
The reason why we find it difficult to fulfill purpose is because we don’t focus on our talents. We have failed over time to know what we can do. We have failed to use our potentials and that is why we struggle in the journey of destiny.
A lot of us have missed it copying what we see others do instead of recognizing our gifts and maximizing it for our own benefits.
By imitating what others do reduces our self worth. Self worth ultimately comes from within, the value you place on yourself is the only type of worth you can control because you are the “Boss” and you are in charge. You alone wholly determine how outside factors influence your inner sense of value and these are the actions, judgments, and reactions of other people.

I’ve observed that a lot of people want to be someone else instead of being themselves and in doing so, they loose their self worth and value. Have you heard! Identical twins do not carry same gift, there will always be a difference between the both of them either physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually. This proves that no two people are the same 100% no matter how blood related they might be. We are all different in our personalities.
This also means that you can’t be “me” and I can’t be “you”.
You are special in your own “make” and I am mine.
When we all recognize our gifts, work on them and be diligent, we will do extra-ordinary things. We must learn to live and believe that there is a ” ONE ME” in this world. The world is waiting for you.
