Ben Parker said this best to his nephew Peter Parker, the amazing Spider-Man! Peter was accidentally fortunate to receive superhuman abilities after being bitten by a radioactive spider on a school field trip. After losing his uncle, Peter remembered Ben's famous quote and decided to put his abilities into good use by becoming a superhero. I believe everyone on this planet possess a gift, talent or skill. Many people already know what their skill sets are. While others are still searching.
If your still on that journey searching for your skills and purpose in life, than you need to ask yourself the following questions. What do you enjoy most in life? Do you have any favorite hobbies or activities you prefer? What is it in life that drives you to the point of excitement and fulfillment? What are you good at? Where do you excel most in life? You want to take your time and be completely honest with yourself when answering these questions.
Never rush into anything just because you feel the need to do something just to be productive. You want to pursue a goal and dream that satisfies you completely. Prior to becoming Spider-Man, Peter already had goals when he was in college. After becoming a superhero he than pursued an additional goal which was to protect innocent people in honor of his late uncle. What's sad is Peter could of prevented the death of his uncle who was murdered by the same burglar he declined to pursue hours earlier.
In life we must learn to cease every opportunity for success. Because the doors to many opportunities do close if you procrastinate for too long and don't take advantage right away. Peter lost his uncle because he failed to cease the moment to subdue his uncle soon to be killer. In the real world many people make the mistake of not ceasing opportunities at the moment. They allow laziness to takeover and decide this opportunity is not important and will present itself again someday. But unfortunately that's not always the case.
The chance to save Ben Parker will be an opportunity Peter will never see again. Some opportunities only comes once in a lifetime. So make it a priority to take advantage of every opportunity that relates to your purpose and goals in life. We all have some type of great ability, skill, talent or gift. Every single person on this planet is great in their own way. And for those who don't believe their great, your wrong! Because you just need to discovery what your greatness is. And with greatness comes great responsibility!
