Have you opened your gift?


Sitting down, watching little clips of talent shows online, I couldn’t help but wonder how magnificent we all are. No matter what people say, we are all gifted uniquely in one thing or the other. Some people term someone “talented” only if he/she is either a dancer or a singe. Are these the only talents we could have? To teach, write, swim, or anything we do with much relaxed feeling is pure talent. I over heard few people along the street arguing over Messi and C. Ronaldo, who is more talented? To be honest, they both are. Our talents are gifts. Have you cared to open them? According to Rick Warren,

“an unopened gift is worthless.”

You’ve got to open up that gift(s) in you and get a hold of what’s in it. Though there are different kinds of gift, they all serve the same purpose; to be of service to people. Put that gift of yours to good use. You can sing, but you’re bed-ridden; you can dance but you’ve got the anxiety-depressed disorder, or stage freight. You think that you’re the only one that is or have experienced it? No you aren’t. The difference between a winner and a loser is just the decisions they made. Don’t just think, just do. That’s what I’ve come to realize. What we believe we are planning to do, Is what someone out there is working on. Instead of waiting for that perfect time to start, just do it.
Nonetheless, there two common problems why you may have left your gifts still lying closed.
You are Envious of other people’s gifts: this occurs when we compare our gifts with others and then become resentful or jealous.
You project your gifts wrongly: this occurs when we think it’s of no use to because we happen to think everyone else has that same gift.
What you waiting for? It’s a new year. Which means it’s a new you, a new resolution, new goals. Pick up that present and open it. Put it to good use this. Let’s illuminate the world with our gift no matter how or what it is. Happy New You. 
Thanks for reading.
