Inspiration Ignition and Integration
Individually, every single one of us is capable of greatness.
Collectively, a group of us are the key to any form of development in
any aspect of the society. Like Shakespeare said, life is but a stage! We
all have guaranteed roles. Unfortunately, though, many of us seem to
think that we don’t really have one.
What is a role if you cannot improvise right? A stage director can only
lay out his ideas and ensure that the props are set but it is in an
actor’s hands to deliver the performance. A stage director inspires
while the actor ignites. The integration of such inspiration and
ignition is the beginning of self development. Apply this analogy to
yourself. Assuming you to be the actor and life the stage director, let’s
analyze how to succeed.
Some actors are supposedly more ‘talented’ than the other. Unlike a
stage director, life is impartial. It does not have a favorite and treats
everyone the same way. The biggest difference that makes us unique
in our stage is our roles. We differ based on the roles we play and the
scene we are part of. The scene I speak of here is the criteria of rich,
poor, happy, sad, urban area, rural area, etc. Irrespective of the scene
however, life provides everyone with abundant opportunities. Of
course you have talent! You find it, snag it and make money out of it,
is probably what Woody Allen might say, but the essence of his crude
line is pretty obvious isn’t it?
