The only treatment for not being recognized and respected is the discovery and consistent usage of your instinct. Discover who you are by discovering your instinct. Ultimately, its consistent usage will earn you a life time.
In this context, I would like to use instinct as to mean a natural gift or skill (Encarta Dictionary, 2009).
Our creator had equipped us with everything we would need to succeed in life from the day we were conceived, though they were not visible to many people on the day of our birth. This phenomenon could continue forever, if the carrier of the instincts does not do something to reverse the situation. In essence, you are the one that would need to discover the area of your gifting, your instincts.
Your instinct, if discovered, will earn you many things in life: Ranging from recognition, respect, breakthrough and most importantly, living.
(1) Recognition: One of the things your instinct would earn you is recognition. Your instinct, if used continuously and consistently, will bring you to limelight. Some people that are crying for recognition have nothing to do than to judiciously use their instincts. The only treatment for not being recognized is the discovery and usage of your instincts.
(2) Respect: Your instinct would not only earn you recognition but also respect. Many people are recognized but not respected. Why? It is just because, they are not recognized for good deeds, they have not discovered their instincts, and they behave as if they amount to nothing. Hence, they are recognized only for bad deeds, which cannot earn them respect. People cannot accord respect to such people. Only those that have discovered themselves and use their instincts for the betterment of humanity can only be given recognition and due respect. If you have discovered their instincts, and you are using it for the upliftment of humanity. Why won’t you be recognized and respected?
(3) Breakthrough: The third value the discovery and consistent usage of your instinct would earn you is breakthrough. For instance, as a blogger, if you have been using your instinct of writing and photography judiciously, if you have been recognized, definitely respect would be accorded unto you. Be on the look-out, breakthrough is already on the way. “The gift of a man makes him to stand before great men and not mean men.” That is breakthrough! Be consistent in whatever good deed you are doing, for the upliftment of humanity, it is high time you would be duly rewarded!
(4) Living: Living is actually different from existence. Many people are just existing, they are not really living. It is only when you discover yourself, by discovering your instinct, that you really start living. Discovery and consistent usage of your instinct would ultimately earn you a living. May be at the beginning, you are just using your gifts as a hobby. A time is coming, that if you want to wholly depend on it for all your expenses, there would be no problem.
Beauty: Beauty is an instinct. It is a natural gift. Some people are beautiful in the eyes of many. Some people are beautiful in the eyes of few. Some people are beautiful in the eyes of only one. That one person should be you! If others don’t see the beauty in you, you are not supposed to be blind to your own beauty. That is, there are some other gifts you can showcase that will make people see the beauty in you. An Electronic Card reads: “Whenever somebody calls me ugly, I get super sad and hug them because, I know how hard life is for the visually impaired.” The saying is very correct; the real blind people are those that cannot see any good in others.
Your instinct makes you beautiful. Your instinct is the real beauty, external beauty is just one of those instincts human beings are endowed with.
Discover who you are by discovering your instinct. Ultimately, its consistent usage will earn you a life time.
