Develop your talents

It’s easy to get caught up in the world’s focus—money, power (position), hedonism—and to think they are what matters. Not so. Develop your talents—whether they are personal skills like encouraging, listening, leading or your physical skills like painting, writing, performing. Whether you are a gifted gardener, talented talker or selfless servant, do what you do best. Give 100%. Overcome your self by focusing outside yourself—develop your self to serve others and you will achieve the ultimate.
