This week Ian Botham was Knighted by the Queen and well deserved I say. Not that I would condone everything that he got up too but hey, most people do something they regret now and then. When I was younger 'Beefy' was a hero of mine, a top class sportsman who would give his all for his sport and still be able to let his hair down. Just having him in your team would have been a bonus, even not on form it would have been like having an extra man. Then the charity walks, he raised a fortune when he could have been at home with his feet up!
So now to the reason for this post. I was listening to Sir Ian on the radio this week and he was asked about his cricket and whether his talent came naturally or whether he had to work at it. he had replied that he definitely had a talent but had to work hard to develop that talent into something special. He added that everyone has a talent they just have to find it then work on it.
Now, is this right? If you think you have a talent do you share it with others or keep it too yourself? Say for example you feel you have a talent for something, in your mind you are the greatest then you share it with others and they think your talent sucks. What then? You thought you were good at something and no-one else agrees so you find yourself talentless?
What if you haven't discovered your talent yet how do you go about unearthing it? how many stones are left unturned before you discover your forte' is crocheting rugs?
I hope you enjoyed this light reading for Sunday morning! Oh, and I actually know one of the men in the picture and it isn't the one in the middle!
