Don’t go through life as a viewer

You don’t want to go through life as a viewer – Spectator; a person who is present at and views a spectacle, display, or the like; member of an audience. A viewer is a person who watches at a show, game, or other event.  Viewers are either in front of their television, laptop, stage or platform. Don’t be comfortable staying in the crowd (audience) all your life clapping for others.  When are you going to do something that will elicit a standing ovation from the audiences around your life?  I believe everyone has his or her own audience.  Click to read Your Audience is waiting.

Viewers get easily carried away by what they are watching. Distractions abound in life. There are many things that steal our attention away from those things that are important to our destinies.  A distraction is anything that takes your eyes off your goal.  In the journey of life, it is possible to become carried away by distractions which appear harmless most of the time. At one point or the other we find ourselves in the position of a viewer.  We can take inspiration from the performances and take a quantum leap from being a spectator to becoming a performer.  Taking the position of a viewer makes sense when you are watching and studying the moves of your mentors or role models.  You will not be carried away by excitement; you will see the show as a learning opportunity.  It was James Allen who said you cannot travel within and stand still without, meaning that you cannot experience a mental transformation without a corresponding progress that is noticeable on the outside.  When the fire of inspiration burns in your mind, you will begin to act differently and positively too in pursuit of your dreams of greatness.

Locate your own platform.  Every platform is not your platform. This is a platform where you are born to perform and shine. This boils down to your talent(s).  Your talent is your forte; a thing at which someone excels. This is what will announce you to your generation.  This is what will fetch you fortune and fame. There is no competition in destiny.  You have absolutely no reason to envy anyone.  To read my piece on the title THERE IS NO COMPETITION IN DESTINY, please click here. Have you discovered what you excel at?  It could be cooking, singing, dancing, organizing, drumming, gaming, problem solving, etc.  Talent is nothing complex. There are people who are troubled whenever they hear about the matter of talent discovery and development. There must be a creative tendency in you, so you cannot tell me that you don’t have a talent. Put your talent on the right platform that is the place where you will shine and succeed.  You have no reason to go through life as a viewer.

  1. It can be so easy to sit back and relax, and watch things happen… Life as a spectator can be one of the least rigorous ways to sail thru life. But the easy way is always the most destructive way, according to life’s standards. that hard way, where you have to strive to make your dreams is the most rewarding in the end. thanks for this, Elsie

  2. As stated above it is easier to be a viewer because its what most of us are use to…I dont like being center of attention and I almost failed public speaking. There comes a time where we all want that extra attention.nows its time for the attention to be on me .
