On the TV show, “America’s Got Talent,” some participants have so much talent that they astound the audience and judges. I’ve seen a doctor who sings and melts hearts with his voice. Our fear stops us from discovering our talents. A shy person could be a great public speaker, but due to stage fright, does not utilize that talent. We put spiritual Masters, celebrities, royalty, and billionaires on a pedestal. We put ourselves down and do not tap into our own talents. Talents are given to us, not earned. All we do is discover them. We can earn a paycheck with our talents, help others, or just entertain ourselves. Each year a new talent not discovered is a year wasted. Writing these thoughts is a talent given by the Lord. — Satish Daryanani
