“Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads.”
… Erica Jong
Three pelicans were flying to a popular lake. As they traveled, they were each lost in thought.
The first pelican thought to himself, “I love my beak. It’s magnificent. No other bird has a beak quite like mine.
When I get to the lake, I’m going to parade along the bank, showing off my beautiful beak and all of the other birds will be jealous.”
The second pelican thought to himself, “I love my beak and I need to protect it.
I can’t afford for it to get damaged, so I’m going to only catch small fish in shallow waters. I know that I can do more, but it’s too risky.”
The third pelican thought to himself, “I love my beak. It’s a beauty and I’m going to push the limits and get the most out of it.
I’m going to become the best catcher of fish in the lake. I’ve been given this beak for a reason, so I’m going to work hard and catch the biggest fish out there.”
We’ve all been given unique talents, experiences and attributes for a reason.
Not to do the bare minimum with them….But to fully develop them and use them to their maximum capacity.
Your talent is life’s gift to you, what you do with it, is your gift back to life
