A Gift Is Not A Talent.
Everyone has a gift, but not every person recognizes what his or her gift is. Being able to identifying is the key to fulfilling the unique purpose of your life.
However, don’t confuse a gift with talent. Anyone can learn a talent, but a gift is something you’re born with.
Think of it this way: can any person take singing lessons to improve their voice? Yes, they can develop a singing talent . But can anyone sing like Whitney Houston? No. Whitney’s voice was her 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 her.
If you’re not sure what your gift is, ask yourself these three questions:
1. What can I do that I’m best at, with little effort on my part?
2. What is the one thing that other people associate with me?
3. I’ve listened to others connect this gift with me, so how have I used it?
Write down your answers and think about what you find. When you identify your gift, you now have the opportunity to live your richest life. The success you experience will be connected to that gift, but you have to figure out the most valuable way to use 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 motivational writing instead. Or, if your gift is listening, think of all the ways you could use it to benefit the most people.
To live your most fulfilling life, identify your gift by asking yourself the questions above.
What did you find?
When I began to become curious about my gift. I would share my life experiences with various people and many would say I was called to be a bridge for others.
A bridge is inherently symbolic of common and union, whether it be between Heaven and earth or two distant realms. For this reason it can be seen as the connection between God and Man. It may be the passage to reality, or merely a symbol for travel and crossing.
I have been invited to speak in a tent revival in September to talk about my experiences and what brought me to where I am today. Maybe be a bridge for someone who needs it.
