Understand how gifts and talent go together?

Gifts and talents are those beautiful things your creator has blessed you with. Gifts and talents are those things you know how to do, that others don’t know how to do. Or that you do better than others. 

Gifts and talents are those special things that your creator made for you, to do best, in life. Gifts and talents are those things that are your specialty! Rather it is helping others, being a lending ear, a comforter, a nurturer, being a healer, etc.. Gifts and talents are those things that give you satisfaction when you do them in life.


Do you understand how gifts and talents apply to your life yet?

Our gifts and talents were not made just for us, they were made for the people around us as well, the people we encounter daily. Our gifts and talents were meant for us to share, with others, to help others. 

Many of us are wasting our gifts and talents, on things that weren’t meant for us to do! For example, we waste our talent of speaking on things that shouldn’t be spoken about or in a manner that they should not be spoken in, like gossip! Some of us waste our talent on, being in fields we were not meant to be in, that job you don’t like! 

 I encourage you to value the gifts and talents that you were born with and utilize them to focus on your purpose in life! Stop wasting your time on things that you were not meant to do! Utilize what your creator gave you and tap into that gift and talents greatness. 

 Remember you were born for a purpose, it is up to you to push past the barriers and find that purpose!



“Everyone has a purpose in life and a unique talent to give to others. And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals”

Kallam Anji Reddy

“Your talent is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God”

Leo Buscaglia

“I’ve learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom – how great is that”?
