Life – How Are You Playing Your Cards?

There are so many sayings batted around us along the same lines as. ‘I drew the short straw,’ ‘Well, those were the cards’ ‘It is what it is.’ etc., etc.  The fact is we say them so often that they can become the prisons in which we confine ourselves and live our lives. A shrine to a life, that could have been so many things.

A shrine to a life, that could have been so many things.

The fact is, this lady simply decided to live her life in the most effective and independent way she could. In a way that gave her the most freedom and made her as least reliant on people as she could possibly be. She simply decided to make the most of her life.  Isn’t that what we all should do?

I have always admired ‘The Parable Of The Talents.’ Matthew 25:14-29, because it reflects the choices you can make with what you are given.

The challenge is always making the most of what you are given in spite of how much or how little it seems.  The outcome is not expected to be the same because the word says clearly that what we are given is measured or weighted against our abilities in the first place. So two people may seemingly have the same disadvantages but one becomes a multi-millionaire the other a teacher, both great outcomes but only the individual knows if there was anything more they could do?

The servant with the one talent was trapped by his own fears of failing, in spite of fully understanding the type of master he served. Allowing fear and the challenge of failing to control your life is possibly the worst decision any of us can make.  The lady in the video chose to take on every challenge that could hinder her from living as independent a life as possible. Challenges which she over came.  Why? because she decided to find the solution to her situation.  The best business people or for want of a better description – ‘The Greatest Achievers’ all say ‘No’ is not the answer or truth for their situation. ‘There must be ‘an answer’ or ‘a solution,’ all they have to do is find it.

 ‘There must be ‘an answer’ or ‘a solution,’ all they have to do is find it.

Find the solutions in your life! ‘Don’t be constrained by an emotional prison.’ Any increase is better that no increase and living in a continuously mediocre space.

Are you making the most of what you have?  What are you doing with the cards you were dealt?


Be the change you want to be, until next time.

About aquene7

I am a mother, a grandmother and Christian, all an essential part of who I am. I happened upon Blogging and found out how to mesh something I have done through out my life which was encouraging those who were friends and family and my love of writing. In doing my usual personal development I came in to the world of coaching and totally fell in love with it and I am currently studying to become a Personal Performance/Life Coach with The Coaching Academy. I absolutely love writing and thought this would be good way to combine these three passions in one place. I hope you find my blog does what it says on the tin, which is to encourage readers with positive and motivational posts:-) Update: 23/3/14: I finally decided to put a face to my blog:-)
