Sir you were hidden for such a time as this to uplift and inspire folks in these trying times.Dont Stop
Wow, if this is not right on target for the past week that I have had. Without really going too much into my background but to give a little understanding of why I am where I am today and why this inspiration Maybe your Being Hidden On Purpose is so inspiring to me let me share a little. I was raised by my mother whom I love and just adore. But molested by my step father for over three years. I carried this secret for over thirty plus years. And did not share this with my family until my fourth and final attempt at suicide in 2005. Where I took over 48 pills, literally sliced my body requiring 80 stitches in one arm and over 120 stickes in another arm. I was placed in a mental ward for over three months and went in and out of mental hospitals for a few years because I continued to cut and disfigure my body. I continued therapy until recently to deal with my molestation and to be able to accept my physical scars. That remain a constant memory of my past. I had felt like the black sheep of the family for my disfigurement, seizure disorder and my bipolar issues. I have been cutting free for the past six years. And have been mentally stable and seizure free for the past three years, I have had the strong desire to own my own business. And have this past year spent a lot of time doing research, taking online classes and investing money in business equipment and supplies. I just recently shared my business venture to my family this past week but did not receive the response that I longed for. Needless to say I did not have get their support. I think I was more so looking for acceptance. To me they could not see all the hard work, effort, time, research, studying and financial expenses that I had placed in this business venture. I started to wander if they could not see what I was and am trying to accomplish because they can not see past my physical scars, past emotional instability or past mistakes. But then after reading this inspiration I believe it is because it is not my time to be seen. That with my continued prayers, focus, commitment and drive I will be a success or should I say I am a success. And surely things are coming together. On November 1, 2012 I will have completed my last certification and will be self-employed and will be operating my business out of my home. But for now I believe I am being hidden on purpose. And that is really okay. Because now I accept and love myself. And that the only acceptance that I truly need is from the Lord above. Thank you for this inspiration Mr. Perry. And thank you for your quote, "Never dispise small beginnings".
Dear Kim Your story is inspiring. What great trauma you have overcome. Don't worry about people not believing in you, a lot of home buyers can't imagine the walls painted any different then it currently is... Keep busting out of your prison!
I've been trying to start a business but it seemed like every idea i had was just not good enough or didn't know what i was talking about or about to do .I have a lot of friends who are in business and doing well for themselves but have never been invited on the table or even given a chance .All my my life until now I've always been the under dog, who is full of passion and ambition to start something (business) that will not only change my life but other people's life as well.Listening to this message has given me understanding about my current position in life and what God has in store for me . Thank you so much for being such a blessing
I have been hit every month this year, but trust God. I was close to quitting, but my wife reminded me of this video. Thank you. I realize I am being hidden during this season and must be content.
Thank you so much for these comforting words, I've been struggling for so long to get seen, I've had to learn how to produce music, write songs, film & edit my own videos due to people always ripping me off . But I've kept strong. It wasn't until a complete stranger took a look at my work and said to me, you could be the next Tyler Perry. Which led me to your sight, what I'm trying to say is Thanks , I will now be using you as my inspiration.
Wow....this is exactly what I needed to hear today!!! I am preparing to make my passion of photography into a full time career and your words are so inspiring to me. I have always believe in doing what you love and are passionate about. Thank you for sharing!!

I so enjoy your talks, they give such good insperation and hope. I Have been a labor and delivery nurse for 20+ years. Five years ago, I went back for my Masters degree to specialize in midwifery. I've had 2 jobs since then, loved both, one of them had to layoff because of finances, the other was about to kill me with 100 hours a week, no family time, not good. I pray daily and cry out to God to show me my purpose in life. I currently work as a nurse in labor/delivery, but because it such busy place, I'm hardly able to do nursing duties anymore, ie: lifting heavy epiduralized women, running a pt in a heavy bed down to the OR because the baby is distress, turning their dead weight over when the baby's heartrate drops....Yes all this for 20 years has caused hearniated and ruptured discs in my back. Daily pain. I still feel I can be a midwife, nothing more precious than watching a new mom or dad hold their new baby the first time and see the joy they are experiencing. That is what I feel my purpose is. However, I haven't found anywhere that I can practice. I loved hearing you inspirational words, and as a Christian, I can tell you I trying to give it to God and let him guide me, it's been 8 months now without doing midwifery. Miss miss my patients, especially the teenager that feels she has nowhere to go, no one to turn to, they call me and ask for help with all their baby questions. There are so many children in our country that have no support and are scared when they find out they are pregnant, many families through them out, my job as a midwife is to be their mentor, their midwife, their teacher, and educate them as much as I can. After listening to how to be successful. I have a goal, be who God called me to be. I will pray he will open the door to a place that can use my knowledge and abilities. Thanks Tyler. Chris Rhoden
This was a POWERFUL MESSAGE 4 many readers, especially me. I am ready to shine like a star but my environment is sometimes confined. I pray for darkness and bleak moments to be removed from my life....In Jesus name I pray, Amen! Thank you TP
