Everyone is born into this world with something to offer it. It is usually called talent at the initial stage. This ‘talent’ stage is when the bearer displays his talent for his enjoyment only; when no one really takes him seriously. People just notice and take their eyes off him, and he is not even seeking to be noticed.
However, talent becomes a gift when the bearer begins to identify with it; when he comes to the realization that this is worth sharing. Talent becomes a gift when he does all he can to make sure that as much as he identifies with it, he is also identified with it.
Talent becomes a gift when people start to see it as a gift, all because they can relate to it and it touches them in some way. Talent becomes a gift when it has become a passion; you live for it, you can die for it.
More importantly, talent becomes a gift when it has become a purpose. Do not remain at the talent stage, when there are worlds to conquer with your gift.
