'Use What Talents You Have'

..."The woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best." This quote from poet Henry Van Dyke reminds us not to waste our talents or get discouraged if others are more accomplished or talented.

Have you ever stopped yourself from doing something (making an app, writing a blog, setting up a business, etc) because that specific thing has already been done by someone else successfully? Consider this: if everyone was deterred that way, the world would be a lot blander than it is now.

Use your talents, whatever they may be. Your work doesn't have to be better than everyone else's; it just needs to be yours.
