Don’t cheat the world of your gifts

You defied the odds before you were born. It’s time, once again, to make what seems impossible possible.

I just attended a storytelling training with the talented Bo Eason, a former NFL player and Broadway stage actor. He explained to us that everyone can be the best at something and to not strive to be THE best goes against Mother Nature.

Here’s what he means by that. When you were conceived, 300 million sperm were competing to connect with the egg. That was not an easy journey. It was a fight for survival, and you had a one-in-300 million chance of being brought into this world.

After this miracle, why is it that we give up on our dreams so easily? Why is it that we sometimes think our voice is not worth sharing on the things that matter to us?

The famous American dancer and choreographer, Martha Graham, said it perfectly.

“There is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost.”

It’s time to start fighting for your dreams again. It’s time to figure out the most positive impact you can have on this world, and DO it.

In Steven Pressfield’s The War of Art, he writes: “Don’t cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you got.”
