qAll around you, there are people who are hurting, people who need your love and people who need your encouragement. Let God use your gifts and talents to bless themq. qGod gives each of us our own unique gifts. It is our responsibility to recognize these gifts, nurture them and utilize them to live up to our full potential. By looking around and inside of you, you will soon recognize what you can do best. It may be creative, intellectual, artistic abilities or strength of character. God gives these abilities to enable you to succeed in life but it's entirely up to you to put them to workq. One may ask why it is so common to see many gifted people unsuccessful in spite of their profound abilities. Of course, there is not a single person who has inherited a gold or oil field who would like to live in poverty. But however unfortunate it may seem, most people with heavenly resources (gifts and talents) are not effectively using them and that explains why they are not successful yet. In our world today, many people are of the notion that because gifts and talents are called qGrace, q there is no need to put your abilities to work; just sit and wait patiently for your time and season. In this book, I try to demystify this myth. I beg to differ: gifts do not grow by themselves; gifts have to be developed. Sir Winston Churchill said, qTo every person there comes in their lifetime that special moment when you are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to you and your talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds you unprepared or unqualified for work which could have been your finest hour.qShow me a great man or woman who has achieved the uncommon and I will show you someone who made grave and unacceptable ... The spirit of ambition cries: aI can use my gift and callings to achieve my dreams and visions regardless of the present circumstances or who is ... He was once the richest man in the world.
