Do you know what you are gifted for? How do you know what your gift is?
It’s simple, your gift is that thing that you can do without any effort, it’s not a challenge, and it just rolls from you naturally. Here are some examples:
- You can sing, everyone who hears you know you can sing. You’ve not taken one singing lesson.
- You can install or repair anything electrical. You’ve never been trained.
- You can look at a mathematical problem and see the solution in a manner of seconds. And I don’t mean just addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. I’m writing about those who have the ability to look at this. ( or or )
All of us have at least one gift within us. Most often than not our gift reveals itself when we are very young. Prior to school age or within a couple of years of our attending school.
Unfortunately people who have never been encouraged to indulge in their dreams learn from others how to assassinate the desires, dreams, goals and visions of others. And those gifts become dormant or just hobbies.
When we see our little ones exploring their dreams we should encourage them. If it’s the blue print for their lives they will stick with it, if not they will not but at least they had fun with the exploration of it and they will recall that you had part in that.
As parents, grandparents and guardians, we are the first teachers our children will learn from. So we should teach them how to stir up the one gift or those gifts that are within them. Never tell someone what he or she can’t do or that no one is interested in what they have to offer.
Never allow a gift to be neglected. Now ask yourself, what gift do I have dormant within me? Stir up your own self and allow your gift to shine.
