“You are the same today as we will be in five years except for the people we meet and the books we read.”…Charlie “Tremendous” Jones
We living in times characterized by rapid change, constantly changing technology but great opportunities
Most people go through life never discovering what their talents are, not knowing what their talents are
Most people never develop their talents
They have skills & abilities but they don’t develop them
If you don’t develop your gifts they’ll never grow
If you don’t nurture your gifts, they wont bring value to you – they will never serve you
Your gifts will take you places if you develop them
Most people don’t want to develop that skill that comes easy to them. You got something that you brought to the universe
If you work harder on developing your gifts, you’ll get a larger vision of yourself
If you work harder on developing your gifts, you’ll never go hungry
But how do you develop your skills?
Be a reader. Learn to absorb & digest information.
Have a strength of character to concentration and focus when you developing your skills.
People should know that when they think about that area – a specific area, profession or product, you’re the first person that should come to their minds

Eat and sleep the knowledge of the area you want to develop & become an expert at
When others are having a good time, partying, having barbeque, sleeping, take time have a strength of character to read, to digest information and develop the skills you have.
