Depending on who you are, your feelings about these people are different from others. What Do You Call Someone Who is Not Embracing Their Special Gifts and Abilities? There are many labels we put onto people who are not in the process of achieving their full potential or sharing their God-given gifts and abilities.
If you are a mover and shaker, you might look at them judgmentally, you might call them “losers.” The list of names is coming up, but more important than what we call them, the biggest question of all is “Why?” Why would anyone let their life just fly by, only to look back at your life with a laundry list of regrets? Regrets for not embracing their special gifts and abilities.
Regrets for not living a better life, your best life, and make the world a better place.
People who do embrace their special gifts and abilities who are active in passionately pursuing their purpose in life, they are not special people, they are people just like you and me, and they are also just like those who are not doing so. Really, we are all the same. We all share the same potential.
If you are the proactive type of person who is dedicated to achieve your highest and best, you run the affairs of your life differently. You are more likely to take the hard road to get what you want rather than take the easy road to “good enough,” or “OK,” and it is not easy.
Sacrifices are made hard work is performed, with little or no support from your peers or the very people that you are trying to see benefit from your efforts. In many cases, making a commitment and following through on your calling or special purpose is a thankless effort, and you may even need to endure ridicule from friends, relatives, and onlookers, while you are doing the work that is necessary while following your vision.
This creates a proactive dreamer on the path to achieving his or her highest and best, who is diligently committed, pressing through the challenges and overcoming the obstacles that stand between where they are and where they want to be, while others are watch from the outside and make fun of them for even thinking that they could aspire to anything greater than their normal lot in life.
That is, of course, until they are successful in their transformation. All of a sudden, you are the respected expert in your field, and those people who made fun of you, are telling all their friends that they know you, and you are one of their closest and most trusted friends, and might even tell people how they were so supportive of you, helping you to achieve your dream come true.
This is the nature of people, and it’s no surprise that these committed high-achievers might harbor some bitterness toward those naysayers who disrespected them as they persevered to make it from where they were to where they are today.
They are likely to engage in a bit of name-calling. I mean, they have sacrificed all to get to where they are, and when they look around at people they care about who are more likely as for a handout than how they could go through the same metamorphosis for themselves because it seems like it is impossible or too much work. When these people had those same inhibitions and fears, but they remained steadfast in their commitment to themselves no matter what. They didn’t let anything stop them. And the way they think about others who think they can’t do it or refuse to do so, has a bit of resentment associated with it.
If you ask them,
What Do You Call Someone Who is Not Embracing Their Special Gifts and Abilities?
They are likely to respond with labels such as,
5. Wage Slave
6. Wasted Talent
9. Weak-kneed Wannabe
10. Ignorant Sheep
It is easy to see the disrespect in these labels for people who are not embracing their special gifts and abilities.
Then there are the coaches, those of us who team up with individuals who have had a glimpse of the light, those who have decided to step forward and join the ranks of the others who have had the gall to take on the wild adventure of pursuing their passions and a better life.
We see the potential, and as a transfiguration specialist, I can easily see you at your highest and best and can see the map with the best roads to take to get you from here to there, even though there are many possibilities. I can see the quickest and easiest way, and all the other roads that are available.
There are many things that can get in the way along the path, and some people respond better to these challenges and obstacles, so we adjust the path based on your bandwidth, threshold, and ability to persevere through adversity.
Coaches are more likely to not see a loser, only unlimited possibility, and enormous potential. Can you arise and take on the challenge of achieving your highest and best?
There’s only one person who knows the answer to that one: You.
Are you ready?
