Our talents are the gift that God gives to us. What we make of our talents is our gift back to God. â€“ Leo Buscaglia
We are all gifted with unique talents, which nobody else can replicate. Yet, most of us, in the pursuit of security, ignore this wonderful gift and live a life that is not truly meant for us. Deep inside, if you have the courage to look into, youâ€™ll find that you are always in a struggle. You may not enjoy the profession you are in, you may not like the place you are living, you may hate your boss and you might hate your very own existence. Most of us continue this way till the end of their lives, leaving this world discontented. However, few of them, often due to circumstances, muster the courage to get out of the rut and discover a life that they had only dreamt of.
You donâ€™t have to spend the rest of your life doing things you hate doing, following someone elseâ€™s mandates or beliefs. Look deep inside you and discover your unique talents. Discover things that bring you joy and spend more time doing them if you canâ€™t make a life of it. Life is not meant to be a struggle. Just look at some of the happiest people. They donâ€™t work to live. They live to work. This is how all of our lives are meant to be lived.
