A New You

When Jon Wallace, the president of Azusa Pacific University, addressed the crowd during the orientation process, he mentioned the greatest tragedy that could occur...that the person graduating is the same as the day he or she entered college.

I thought about Jon's message as I drove away from the campus and I wondered what kind of person my daughter will be in four years when she graduates.  It's like planting a seed in fertile soil.  We "expect" the seed to change, to become something new.

How about you?  Do you still feel like an unsprouted seed that's stuck in the ground?  Maybe you're a caterpillar who can't wait to become a butterfly but you don't know how to get there.  How can you become a new "you?"

A good starting point is to discover your own uniqueness. If you've never taken the time to analyze your talents, why not give yourself a test and find out what your strengths are.  You could probably spend a lifetime working on your weaknesses.  If you are still not "sprouting,"  you are probably miserable because you are not developing your strengths.  Check out this book and become a new you.  Beware, do not buy this book used because you will miss out on the special code granting access to the test.
