Who is a TRAILBLAZER??? A trailblazer according to my own understanding is someone who dares to be different, who is an innovator, an initiator, a pioneer, a go getter, someone who stands out from the crowd, someone who believes in his/herself, someone who knows his/her self worth and realizes the great substance they have stored up in them and uses it to explore the extraordinary. A TRAILBLAZER is far from the usual. A TRAILBLAZER can be YOU. Now the questions are: What do you standout for???… What are you noted for???… In what way/ways have you dared to be different from others???… Among your peers, what have you positively done differently???… Are you a “people pleaser”???… How have you positively impacted on your immediate environment/ society???… Don’t you think a world of positively unique people would be a better place to live in???… These questions should make you have a flash back, do a rethink, retrace your steps and press on in that self-discovered direction.
To each person is a different destiny, a different calling, even a different finger print. We are all unique in our different ways, not even identical twins have the same finger prints. We are all fearfully and wonderfully made by our creator, God. You don’t need to be the most intelligent education wise, the most beautiful/handome, the richest or the most current person in order to be a PositiveTrailblazer. All you need to do is activate the explosion of that unique greatness stored up inside of you that had been chilling to explode. I know many of you have heard about the famous Neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Carson or watched the movie about his true-life changing story (Gifted Hands), now that’s an example of a Positive trailblazer. That movie really touched and inspired me, made me pause for a while and do a rethink of my life, if you havn’t seen the movie please make sure you do. He wasn’t from a wealthy home, he was single-handedly brought up by his mom, he wasn’t the intelligent type in school, he had a bad temper, in general he had a rocky/troubled life growing up, nevertheless, all those things didn’t weigh him down. YOU KNOW WHY? because he had God on his side, he was determined and knew where he was going. Now who is he today? The first neurosurgeon to successfully seperate conjoined twins at the head, a path in which most neurosurgeons of today thread on.
The main problems hindering potential positive trailblazers in most cases are The aim to please others and Peer Pressure. Peer Pressure, what i call “one of the syndromes for the low self-esteemed”. This has been one of the major barriers hindering the youths of today from standing out. Be independent!. We all came into this world alone, even twins, triplets, quadruplets or octuplets came into this world one by one. So be able to stand your ground, be able to stand for what is right. I’m not saying you shouldn’t have friends or peers, No!.. all i’m saying is that you should stand for what is right and not allow friends/peers lure you into going against your will. When such pressure comes up, boost your viscosity and resist the pressure. Stand your ground!. Also about the aim to please others; By aiming to please others, you end up displeasing yourself which is at the expense/ detriment of your happiness. Those people you seem to please/ impress really don’t care much, YOU KNOW WHY? because you’re not the first they’ve seen, you’re probably a duplicate to them. Instead why not aim at pleasing God who is always ready to help you discover you. So you should never worry about what people would say as far as you know you are doing the right thing and God is in support with what you are doing. The moment you get these things right, the better it becomes.
In order to be a Positive trailblazer, you have to/ must;
- Have a personal relationship with God. Yes, i won’t get tired of hammering on or writing or talking about this point. You just have to be close to him first, make him your companion on that journey of self-discovery and see yourself excel.
- Have faith and believe in yourself. No one can ever believe in you more than yourself.
- Upgrade and boost your self-esteem. Build the wall of determination and confidence all around yourself.
- Develop the spirit of a champion. Never give up!.. Keep trying until you win.
- Moreover, be humble and cheerful. Keep up a meek and happy heart and a smiling face too. 🙂
I am very proud of the young lady i am today and The great woman God is moulding me into. It can only get better!. Are you proud of yourself???… Please be!.. I challenge you to bring out the best in you, Dare to be Different, Blaze your Trail Positively today and inspire the younger ones coming behind you. There’s a huge punishment awaiting NEGATIVE TRAILBLAZERS (Matthew 18: 6-7). Hehehe… I told you The Bible is complete. Ciao!!!… 😉
