“To find out what one is fitted to do, and to secure an opportunity to do it, is the key to happiness.” — John Dewey

Diamonds are attractive because of their appearance and the value they carry. If one discovers acres of diamonds, the person can vastly accumulate great wealth. Who doesn’t desire to find such diamonds?

The great thing is…we all can find diamonds. They are existing everywhere. The surprising thing is most of the time they are just close to us. We don’t get to see them because we ignore their existence.

Find out how to find your diamonds that can offer you riches that you desire in any aspects of your life. Provided you find the right one, and act on different ways to increase its value.

It seems like it’s a common knowledge for all of us to use our strengths or talents. But the sad thing is, lots of people still set them aside.

Here are 7 Reasons Why We Should Put Our Talents, Gifts or Strengths to Use:

1. Other People Can Benefit From Them

“Non nobis solum nati sumus. (Not for ourselves alone are we born.)” — Marcus Tullius Cicero

Humans coexist with one another. In a symbiotic relationship, one of the ideal relationships is Commensalism where the two individuals benefit from each other.

Our gifts or talents are purposely created not just for ourselves but to help those around us.

We benefit from other people’s talents. We benefit from Jobs’ Apple creations, Edison’s light bulb, Ford’s automotive ideas or our mom’s cooking. Almost everyone around us contribute to our welfare in one way or another.

Now the interesting question is: How do other people benefit from our gifts or talents?

Our gifts or talents are ours but they are not just there for us. They are given to be shared with others. Just imagine the world if nobody shared a talent.
