Kobe Bryant said after his last game

“I was blessed with a lot of talent and I worked like I had none”

Each of us was/is blessed with talents, although we don’t necessarily see some of them as talents.  Each of us was given, what we were given, from your height, to the color of your hair, the color of your eyes, to what we normally call talents.  All given to you to make you the player you are meant to be, on the team called humanity.  Added together, all that’s given to you, makes you a talent.  All given to you as a package, so as to make you the unique person you are and are meant to be.  It’s given to you so that you may fulfill your unique and needed role on that team.  Only you possess that unique talent and therefore only you can fulfill that role.

Recognize your “talents” and then “work as though you had none”, so as to constantly seek to improve what you have.  Recognize that your talents are a gift given to you so that you may bring your gift to the party of life.  Recognize your “talents” and wonder how they can be used for the good, which is why they were given to you in the first place.

“Talent without discipline is like an octopus on roller skates. There’s plenty of movement, but you never know if it will be forward, backwards, or sideways.”  – H. Jackson Brown Jr.

“Use what talent you possess; the woods would be very silent if no bird sang except those that sang best.” – Yeedle Melber
