A talent is like a fire.
It is the reason you are here.
Feed it, and it will burn forever.
It will grow, and it will be your guiding light.
Neglect it, and it extinguishes.
The longer you leave your fire extinguished,
the harder it is to light again.
If you aren’t nurturing your talent,
what are you doing?
You are wasting your time.
You are like a bird that never learns to fly.
It is better to die penniless having pursued your gifts and failed,
than having surrendered them to be average.
When you follow your passion, the universe sings. This is part of the only path to true happiness. A gift is something that is given to you, and so it is your responsibility to be in a position to receive it. Don’t waste too much of your time away doing things that don’t build on the talents and skills you were naturally gifted with, as these are your most fulfilling pastimes. It is from exercising these skills that you will find your place in the world.
