I said that talent is simply the result of being bored and putting your energy in a positive direction. After further reflection I think it is more than that, at least for me.
Real talent is the result of a soul seeking peace from hurt, anger, loneliness and disappointments. It is a way of finding acceptance of ourselves so as not to be dependant on the acceptance of others. Talent is based on a love to create something positive in a world of negatives, a desire to quit the search for something beautiful and be the source of it instead. It is going inside ourselves to find the gifts that the Creator gave us. The bonus is that as we find abilities within ourselves, we begin to see the gifts in others. – Coov
