Have you discovered your fastball?

Have you discovered your fastball: motivational article
In a world where there is stiff competition in almost all sectors, there is need for you to stand out because in standing out lies your advantage over teeming number of folks who are comfortable with mediocrity.

Basically, one of the ways to stand out is knowing your 'fastball' - what gives you slight edge over others. What are you really good at? What can you do better than others? These are your 'fastballs'. And to get ahead in life you must focus on developing yourself in areas you’re really good at.

There is no point venturing into a business you have little or no knowledge about. You can only thrive in sectors where you’re allowed to give full expression to your skills and abilities. Many people’s frustration today is as a result of being a square peg in a round hole. You can’t be a square peg in a round hole and accomplish much.

When you are doing what you’re meant for, you don’t struggle with it. The presence of continuous struggle and frustration shows something is wrong. A lot of people dabble into things hoping that one day one will work instead of focusing on the area of their strengths, their 'fastballs'.

The likelihood of you succeeding doing what you’re good at is much high compared to when you choose to follow ‘the convenience lane’, where anything goes. A successful Lionel Messi in football will probably be an utter failure in basketball. I’ll say it again: you cannot make exploits doing things God did not create you for.

Each of us is wired with special gifts and abilities, it is then left for us to discover and explore them. You have what it takes to reach the pinnacle of your business and career, but you need to find out things you’re good at and settle down to making the most of them.
