"The recognition of something outside of one's self fuels the mind to achieve alternate altitudes. Therefore, pursue the fruition of your potential through service, as narcissism will only squander your purpose. The talents given are not your own and were meant for others. Dare to share!"
There are many talented people on this earth that have and will achieve great things. However, attempting to achieve those things in the wrong spirit will most likely end in a sub-par result. Talents flourish when they are used in the service of others. For a skill isn't a skill until it can be applied. In order to apply a skill you must have a subject and that's where people come into play. If people don't like you, your talent rarely gets the respect it may deserve.
