Don't Give Up!

So you think you are destined for greatness? So you think you – your life – is replete with those indices that point to an eventual great life? But here you are, you don't seem closer to greatness today than you were yesterday, last month or a year ago. You don't even seem to be moving in the right direction. You are confused and your conviction is gradually ebbing away. You feel you have lost your mojo, your zeal and your verve.  You are no longer motivated.

These innate gifts begin to come to the fore. For instance, some people discover they can run faster than others or are better at specific sports than the average individual. Some find out that they are faster at grasping concepts or that they easily excel others when it comes to academics.

Over time, the world – people around us – begins to notice our potentials. It is not uncommon to hear people say things like: since when he was a kid, we knew he would be a great artist, footballer, performer, etc. This is because some, if not most people, begin to show flashes of their inherent talent from a young age.

When our talents and gifts start to draw attention, more often than not, it comes with expectations on the part of the pe…
