Valuing and Sharing Our Gifts- Principle 2


Everyone has a purpose in life … a unique gift or special talent to give to others.

Deepak Chopra


Unfounded fears about your competence and abilities can cripple your unique talents and gifts, which are waiting to be released.

Dan Miller


There are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our encouragement, who will need our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give.

Leo Buscaglia


“Gifts are innate talents that people born with and are happy to share. Skills are what people have learned to do and know well enough that they could teach a neighbour for free. Passions are what people care enough about to act on even though they may not always have a particular talent to bring to the issue; they care enough to act regardless. Experience is what people have lived through and have come out the others side of. Knowledge is what people know well enough that they can share what they know with their neighbours and/or the neighbourhood’s children.”

Cormac Russell and John McKnight


“If you’re not sure what your talents are, begin to look for clues. Notice those activities that make you lose track of time and fill you with joy. Make a list of everything you would love to do if you had all the time and money in the world.”

Deepak Chopra
