“You and every other individual on this planet possess an awesome treasure. Too much of this treasure is buried every day, untapped and untouched, in the cemeteries of this world. Much talent, skill and creativity have been lost to the world for want of a little courage. Many obscure men and women enter eternity pregnant with potential, with a stillborn purpose. Living with ability brings responsibility. Dying with ability brings irresponsibility.” – Myles Monroe
Hearing this quote for the first time this past Sunday it really got me thinking how much talent in this world does go untaped, buried and gone forever. There are many reasons why a person’s treasure goes untouched. Lack of opportunity, time, energy, etc. the list goes on and on. I am not there yet, but I imagine that at the end of our lives our reasons for not living out our purpose are just excuses. If every person has an awesome treasure why do so many not tap into it?
There is not much commentary to add to this quote other than read it and think about it. I hope that you don’t take your treasure with you because, well…. you can’t!
Enjoy the journey,
