This type of mind sees beyond the problem, sees the desired result and the path to get there. This can be a blessing or a curse, depending on whether you have the authority to actually implement and communicate the necessary changes. From a spiritual perspective, I am also a seer, which at times ties in well with this mindset. Sometimes I "see" things and wonder why others don't see it also. This is who I am...these are the strongest gifts God has given me. People often try to be overly humble and not talk about their strengths and gifts. When I say what my strengths and gifts are I am not being prideful, I am honoring God and thanking Him for what He has placed within me. I am pointing toward Him and saying "This is what God has given me and I desire to use those gifts to the best of my ability" That is my prayer... that I never waste what He has given me.
What gifts and talents has God deposited in you? If you don't know them or ignore them, you are burying them as the servant did in Matthew 25:14-30.
Study yourself and know what talents God has given you! How does your mind work? What problems do you see and formulate a way to fix them?
People who say they are trying to "find themselves" tend to look outward, studying the world in their quest. Why would you ever look at the world and other people to know yourself? To know yourself, you must look inward and study yourself! Until you do, you will find yourself copying other people--covering up the real you. And when you know yourself, do not be ashamed to speak and act on those gifts and talents. It's not about pride, it's about God. He deposited those gifts within you for a purpose. He has a job for you to do and He has placed the tools within you. Doing anything less is like the servant who buried the one talent.
To be "true to thine own self" you must KNOW yourself from the inside out!
Be blessed! Arlene
