“Each of us is given one gift – a special strength or talent – and it is our task to discover and cultivate it. Take stock of your potential strengths. If you are not sure, ask friends or loved ones; they often see what remains hidden to us. We share common human weaknesses, but it is our unique talents that make us special.
The late “Peanuts” cartoonist Charles Schultz claimed that he wasn’t much good at anything as a youth – but he liked to draw cartoons. This doesn’t mean it was easy – his first cartoons were rejected before he found success. So remember that everything is difficult until it becomes easy. And follow your interests, because interests can ignite into passions, and passions become strengths. Charles Schultz played to his strength, on which he built an empire and a life.”
Dan Millman, in “Living on Purpose”
