I am a fan of the movie series “X Men” and the anime series “Hunter x Hunter”
Guess what’s common among each of the heroes?
Each of them have a super-natural gift.
I believe that each of us have a natural gift.
My elder daughter is exceptional street smart, so smart that she can fool adults easily.
My younger daughter has the gift of music and drawing.
A revelation came to me that changed my life.
When I was a student I was led to believe that the only measure of success, intelligence and self worth is passing exams. I thought that if you fail, you are termed a ‘failure’, useless to society and might as well die cos there is no bright future for the rejects. If you don’t score well, you are relegated to become a 2nd class student.
The best jobs were given to those who did well academically.
Albert Einstein said: “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid”
I was led to believe that I was stupid cos I did not know the right method to study or remember what I studied.
Until one day I read the book about multi-intelligence.
I was fascinated with computers and technology and became so good that even the CEO and general asked me for IT help.
That changed my perspective. I was smarter than them in this one area.
I believe God gives everyone of us, including you, a gift (talent)
How do you discover you gift (talent)?
It is something that you have a flair for it, you do it naturally well, you learn it fast.
You are most happy when you are doing it.
You do it whenever you are free.
You spend a lot of time and money on it.
You learn a lot about it.
Even your friends seek your opinion on it.
It is something that you do better than most people.
If given a choice, without the constraint of money and time, you will love to do this for the rest of your life.
When you reflect on the above, you will discover your gift.
It is important to express your gift.
Because there is a reason why God give you this gift.
To bless humanity
To express your greatness
To fulfill your calling and mission
It bring the best in you.
It fills your life with enthusiasm. You can’t wait to get up and doing what you love.
Work seems like play.
Through the expression of your gift, you bless people.
You feel joy in expressing your gift.
It is so effortless, like fish to water.
Happiness is discovering your gift and manifesting your greatness.
Finally, I found mine and I am a happier person.
May you find yours.
