Who’s Got Talent?

February 8, 2023

 You Do!

Kobe Bryant said after his last game upon retiring from Basketball

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

Each of us was/is blessed “with a lot of talent”, although we don’t necessarily see some of them as talents.  We just accept them.  We also have, perhaps hidden deeper, untapped, and/or unrecognized talents.

Each of us was given, what we were given, from every single detail of your appearance, to what we normally call talents.  All were given to you to make you the player you are meant to be, on the team called Humanity.

The combination of 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 Team Humanity.  No one ever before has your unique talent.  Only you possess that unique talent and therefore only you can fulfill that role.  You are not just matter, you Matter!

Of course, within your package there might be a very outstanding talent recognized by many. Since each of our uniqueness is meant to be used to do a good for one or many, that one gets you noticed by many, so that you can do a good for many.

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

Recognize that all others also have their talents.  When we all use our talents, we can have the world we all wish for.  Life is not like an individual sport, it is like a team sport

“I do not try to dance better than anyone else. I only try to dance better than myself.” – Mikhail Baryshnikov

“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.

“When I stand before G-d at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything you gave me.” – Erma Bombeck

When you recognize that you are a talent, when you use your talent as it’s meant to be used, you will also be talented at being happy 😊

Use Your Talent To

Be Good Do Good Think Good Be Grateful Be Healthy Be A Light Smile

      Wow Thank you Patrice
      I have heard that before about communication being a talent of mine. So I do this blog and public speaking to use that talent for a good, in this case by hopefully helping people. I pass on all of the wisdom that I have come across that helps me “climb my mountain” using my words. Doing this I wish to reach as many as it might benefit.Thank You for being a loyal reader
