So many latent talents lies in each and every one of us, so it always surprises me when someone says that they don’t have any talents.
That is an absolute lie. Every human was created equipped with a store house of dormant talents waiting to be tapped.
Some are out-rightly glaring in the face of the bearer and everybody around them, while some talents have to be discovered, developed and honed to bring out it’s optimum potential.
The more an iron is rubbed on a grinding stone, the sharper it becomes. When these potentials are not explored, the natural tendency is that it well remain stunted and never mature to any fruitful stage.
Some are simply too lazy to want to bother taking the time to think and find out that thing that really makes their heart sing.
In some cases, some move with whatever seems to be in vogue at that point in time.
Just because everybody else is doing it does not make it fit or right for you.
At the end of the day, when the movement becomes directionless and like driftwood, frustration sets in, time passes by and they wonder what happened to their lives.
It’s never too late to find and enjoy the talents that have been poured into you. Age notwithstanding.
It’s only too late when life is gone and the grave yard becomes the depository of potentials which have been allowed to go to waste.

P.S. check the word talent and latent… can you see that they both spell the same.
