Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
Henry Van Dyke
Each and every one of us was born with some very unique talents and gifts. Contrary to what many believe, there is not one of us lacking in the talent department. Oh sure, there will always be those who are quick to tell anyone in earshot that they have very little talent. They couldnt be any more wrong.
Each of us have a song inside us that needs to be sung. These songs are those things we were born to do; the special, distinctly different abilities and aptitudes each of us possess.
"The person born with a talent they are meant to use will find their greatest happiness in using it."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Are you using your talents and singing your song? Are you out there each and every day using your skills, making your life everything you ever dreamed it could be and more?
If you have not done so already, you need to identify your special niche in life those things which you make you come alive with excitement and enthusiasm and begin fashioning a lifetime of achievement around them.
With ordinary talents and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable.
Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton
You don't have to go looking far and wide to find your special skills and abilities. All you really need to do is identify the things which you possess a knack or flair for and then work at becoming the best you can become in your chosen area of excellence. By passionately throwing your entire heart and soul into the effort, you can take what many may regard as an unremarkable talent and proceed to set the world on fire.
Youll quickly discover that ordinary talent come grow into extraordinary genius when youre prepared to give that little extra day after day. And its easy to give that little extra when youre following your heart and chasing your dreams.
Your talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.
John W. Gardner said that true happiness involves the full use of one's power and talents. You need to use your talents or risk losing them forever.
Why not go ahead and sing your song loudly and proudly? Why shouldnt you follow your heart and discover the pot of gold that awaits at the end of your rainbow? Brenda Francis said it best when she said, If you have a talent, use it in every which way possible. Don't hoard it. Don't dole it out like a miser. Spend it lavishly, like a millionaire intent on going broke.
When you do, your talent search is over.
The Bottom Line: When you use what you have and give it everything youve got, youll find all the talent youll ever need.
