It is the privilege of a man to achieve greatness. Yet, we find millions upon millions suffering the agonies of failures. In our modern society, for every successful man, we watch hundreds who are disappointed, dejected and broken down. No doubt we often make mistakes, we get demoralized but we forget that there is always room for improvement, isn’t there? And what’s better than improving ourselves?
There is one great and covetable gift which is distinctly ours at all times, and this is our profound capability to discover, develop and usefully deploy this infinitude in us. A life organized for the discovery of the potentialities already within ourselves, and the ordering of our behavior so as to nurture and nourish them, is a life well spent. Herein our success depends upon the amount of transformation we can successfully bring about in our personality and character. The vital question is how much of our existing talents are we capable of exploring, developing and exploiting? The person is successful who makes a practical use of at least one talent that he possesses.
