Talent, of itself, is a useless thing.

Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work. Stephen King
Talent, of itself, is a pretty useless thing, until it can serve a purpose to create meaning, change something, add new perspectives, gain some new insights, build something or re-create something. When talent is mixed with perseverance and determination to serve selflessly and purposefully – then talent becomes useful and should make society a better place to live.
What is your talent?
What is it being used for?
Are you using your talent to create meaning?
Are you using your talent to serve life?

    • True thing Tess! It is also like saying we have potential…. we need to actually do the stuff to move past potential! Thank you for your comment.


  1. I totally agree, and in some way you helped me to find a talent in me that I can use to serve people. One day you told me I should pursuit a career in the health sector and I think you were right…I will start in May and I will be able to use my talent of serving and helping people this way…Thanks!
