Your entire will have new meaning and direction when you recognize your gift and decide on the most valuable way to use it- Steve Harvey said. Act like a success, think like a success.
A gift is not a talent.
Everyone has a gift, but not every person will recognize their gift. Being able to identify it is the key to fulfilling the purpose for your life.
Don’t confuse your gift with your talent. Anyone can learn a talent, but a gift is something you are born with.
Think of it this way, can anyone take singing lessons to improve their voice? Yes, anyone can develop a singing talent. But can anyone sing like Elvis Presley or Whitney Houston? No, their voice was their gift and no one else (no matter how many lessons they take and how dedicated they are to furthering their talent) will sing quite like them.
Ask yourself these questions:
What can I do that I’m best at, with little on my part?
What is the one thing that other people associate with me?
I’ve listened to others connect this gift to me, so how have I used it?
Find yourself and reflect.
If your gift is writing, how can you use it in the most valuable way! Your way might not be in writing fiction-it could be in motivational writing instead. Or, if your give is listening think of all the ways you could use it to benefit he most people.
To live your most fulfilling life, identify you gift by asking the above question.
I have for a very long time wanted to play the Harmonica like my father, I have tried over and over again but, I just don’t have the gift that he had. Mine is writing and listening and being a prayer intercessor at my local church.
You may want to have a gift but, sometimes it’s a gift you were not given a birth. Be happy with your unique gift and use it in your life. Not only will you feel at peace, but with it you can help others too.
