Nature and Nurture

Nature vs. Nurture | The Abilities

Do you ever catch yourself thinking how similar you are to your parent or your colleagues? Do you ever stop to ask yourself why you are in the position you are in, reflect on who you are, or embrace where you have been?

You are a truly unique person with experiences unlike anyone else. Your makeup is complex, and you should know yourself well by now.

But who are you really, and why do you do what you do?

Nature and nurture is an age old debate explaining why people behave the way they do, whether it was what they were taught while growing up, or whether it is their natural ability.

While this debate is meaningful and well known, there is another variable in the debate. What if you are who you are because of your aspirations, your visions, and dreams? What if you are who you are because you spread your wings and created a new reality?

I call this nature, nurture, and “not me”. See, just because you were raised in an environment, or you are currently in a situation, that doesn’t mean you can’t choose, create, and change into who you want to be.

Think of yourself as an eagle. Eagles have a gift of vision. They have an advantage over other predators because they can see further. They can also soar higher than any other bird because of their wings. They spread their own wings and go where they want to go.
Truly majestic animals.

I defy you to defy gravity, and spread your own wings.

Spread Your Wings

Spread your wings | The Abilities

What a magical moment – That moment when a baby bird finds its wings – The moment when freefalling turns to soaring – The moment when you experience that element of support in
your natural environment.

This is required to be able to explore. This is required to live your life to its
intended purpose.

See, the wings of the nurturer can only provide the necessities of life for so long. There will come a time when it is required of you to fly and find what you need.

Unlock Your True Power

True Power | The Abilities
Unlock Your True Power | The Abilities

We all have our own version of living on the edge of adventure – saving the world from the ticking bomb of destruction – preventing the evils of the world from attacking our loved ones – revolutionizing humanity as we know it.

Sometimes our powers lay dormant under the mask of monotony, ego, self esteem, pride, current situations, mediocre thinking, or even just our day to day lives. So many people have the ability to add value onto the world, to live the life of impact, and create greatness.

But sometimes we just get stuck. Sometimes we need an awaking.

Well what if you could unlock your true power? What if you could tap into the superpowers you know you have? What does that actually take to reach your full potential and make a difference? Is it being challenged? Is it creating goals? Is it maintaining the high purpose? What is it that drives you to take action?

You need to investigate how to create that fire to your incredibly powerful potential. You know your talents, but how do you unleash them? You know your dreams, your passions, and your gifts. Tap into them, take heart, and try.
