It is the ability to foresee what others cannot see and walking in the right path of actualising our vision that makes us a wonder. Be proud of whom you are and embrace your difference; that’s the only way you can be what no one else can be. It keeps you focused even while in training you can never quit, no matter how tempting the easy way to success may seem, the authentic will always last longer.
While others see an arrogant, self-absorbed and prone to fail creature; who you see in you determines how you groom the legend till he is strong enough to emerge, regardless of the soil that sculpted him, how many times he failed in the eyes of the ordinary, are only stepping stones.
A wonder human is not afraid failing, but afraid of not trying well enough. Challenges come to reveal the great inner strengths we never knew we had, and as wonder humans we save ourselves from destruction with the wonder of our inner strength which we possess.
A wonder human is always ready: because he understands that if you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready. We were created to continue the chain of creation, which is inexhaustible. The universe is ever willing to deliver all the resources, each in its season. So it’s up to us to keep moulding our creation clay, recreating ourselves till the wonder human emerges.
Nobody had it all figured out from the beginning, that’s the wonder of the world; but it never becomes too messy to wonder about becoming your very creation. Fall too deeply in love with yourself till mediocre assumes its selfishness.
We may not have full defence or a back-up plan, but what’s the pain if we know our powers are limitless. A wonder human always made it to the destination, regardless of a map. It’s the force that we carry that determines our destiny. It’s a force too great, and a being too powerful, God.
Like the love of wisdom, it all starts with wonder; most times you have to do it yourself and for yourself before others will understand the value. Embrace the challenge of taking yourself higher by wondering what you can do for yourself and not what others can do for you. The first person you need to help you is you and that’s the way to awaken your soul to embrace living a fulfilling life.
Wonder humans understand that great heights are attained in steps not because they see what others don’t see, but they discover their uniqueness before others can tell by their aura. Each step is challenging and severely straining, but they do the hard labour in other to master the steps and become familiar with each corner of their success. Because they did the work and it wasn’t handed over to them by a mere mortal: like stepping into a big man’s shoes which you constantly feel like dragging things along to meet up. A wonder human, who has had their fair share of the pain that comes with hard work, and has embraced the crown, regardless of the thorns, becomes a true wonder in the eyes of others.
Becoming strong cannot be easy; it comes with lots of criticisms, image tarnishing and unpleasantness. Wonder humans walk through the storms with an attitude of assurance, confidence and determination; for their own image in their minds is the ideal motivation, and it rules out the fear, setbacks of failed attempts. Wonder humans are misjudged, criticised and their intention questioned; but they are their own heroes and so keep pushing through to land among the stars.
They understand that they are beautiful souls with unique resistance to failure. They understand the value of cooperation, but also don’t have their joy, peace and happiness anchored on another human being as the sole source of the things they hope to achieve and become.
