In this world we live in… people view a small population of the world as being privileged, and others view a larger population of the world as being disadvantaged.
We have all been guilty of placing labels on the basis of financial or social status. We label people with being born with silver spoons in their mouths, we proclaim that people are lucky, and we anoint people as being ‘blessed’ and condemn people as being ‘cursed.’
And even though there is some level of truth to these labels… they say that “All Men Are Created Equal.”
I believe this to mean that everyone, regardless of the position they are born in, has the ability to live the life they desire. Regardless of where we start in life…
THERE ARE 3 GIFTS THAT PLACE US ALL ON LEVEL GROUND.
I’ve said this before… and I will say it again. No matter where we are, no matter where we’re from, we all have 24 hours in a day. The way we choose to spend those 24 hours determine if we become ‘privileged’ or ‘disadvantaged.’
Just like time… we all have the same opportunities to shape our lives, direct our lives, and change our lives. In addition, opportunities are all around us, and opportunities can be given and created by anyone.
This is the gift that is misused the most! We all are granted the ability to place forth effort towards any endeavors we choose, but what separates the ‘blessed’ and ‘cursed’ is the amount of effort that is given, and the amount of effort that is wasted.
