Shine, Don’t Reflect Part 2
Chris Hannibal | Stephen Scoggins
Episode 006 of The Journey Principles Podcast
As promised, we have Chris Hannibal back for another week! Master magician and headliner for our Journey Principles Light Up the Darkness event coming up on Saturday, September 24th.
Last week we talked about the importance of finding your passions and dreams. This week, Hannibal talks about the difference between passion and ability. You can be passionate about something but have no ability with that passion. It is when your passion and ability meet that you will find your God-given purpose.
Pull out a piece of paper and list five things that you would do for absolutely free if everything was considered equal. It is within those five things that you can find your passion and ability, your God-given purpose. The next step is to refine that skill and find your own style within it.
Shine, don’t reflect!
Hannibal’s mom had that quote posted in his home growing up. This is something he has chosen to live each day by. When you look into a mirror you see your reflection. When many people are just starting to pursue their purpose, it is okay to reflect someone else that you admire. You are learning, you are refining the skill. There comes a time that you must stop reflecting them and look inside for your own style, your own way. If it is a God given talent and purpose, your skill is found within you. Let your own style shine and don’t reflect those styles of others. Shine, don’t reflect!
Lastly, is there something that you are struggling with or having a hard time overcoming? Hannibal’s advice is to just breathe. Live in the moment. Breathe in. Take in everything around you. Breathe out. We live in such a miraculous world. A sunrise can become mundane very quickly. It can simply mean “get up, time for work.” But if we take the time to look around us and appreciate everything around us, we can live a much more fulfilling life. Take in the world much like an infant and toddler take in new things. Live in astonishment!
