The definition of gifted is to have great natural ability, intelligence, or talent. When people say someone is gifted, they often then about an athlete or a performer of some sort. Everyone has a natural born gift that when paired with an unwavering belief that their gift must be shared is a force to be reckoned with. A person determined to share their gift with the world regardless of any setbacks or obstacles that may come their way is a person who will impact others they come in contact with on a daily basis.
An example of one of the most divine gifts a person can possess is compassion. Being compassionate and showing empathy for others is a natural born gift. No one can teach you how to be compassionate. You can attempt to use emotional intelligence to appear that way, but truly compassionate people provide a listening ear, sound advice and selflessly give of their time without expecting something in return on a daily basis and without request. Have you ever found yourself speaking to someone and before you knew it they were telling you something that was bothering or worrying them? It’s because they sense that you would be gentle and kind with their vulnerability at that moment in time.
The Work Your Package™ message is based on the premise that everyone has a gift that they alone were created to share with others. Fully embracing it and realizing what you are destined to do is the one of the most important revelations you will ever make. Knowing what you are destined to do will help you ignore the naysayers that you will encounter during your journey of embracing and nurturing your gift. The same box your naysayers will try to put you in will be the same box you will one day stand upon to deliver your gift to the world.
