Not A Bit Of Talent Left

Are You Who You Represent Yourself To Be?
Are You Who You Represent Yourself To Be?

Please join me in welcoming my friend David Balentine, as he asks an important, but overlooked question. Take it away David:

How are you using your talents?

A challenge we all face is how to use our talents wisely. One of those challenges presented itself in the form of being asked to write a pithy post as a guest blogger. Not knowing fully what the word meant, another challenge arose. Define pithy.

In a world filled with talented writers, I do not consider myself one of them.

Originally rejected by her school’s newspaper, she turned her talents into becoming a popular humorist, recognized nationwide and read by more than 30 million people across the US and Canada every week.

“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything you gave me”.” – Erma Bombeck

So, how are you using your talents?

Ok, back to my words: What is it that you want to become but for a variety of excuses, fears, doubts, reasons, you will never know because your fear is greater than your desire. Embrace failure as a necessary part of the formula and begin again, refreshed, renewed, recommitted.
