Self-projections- A self- improvement scenario???


“Do the best you can with what little talent you’ve got, and you’ll go far.”


Dr. Norman Vincent Peale had delivered an inspiring speech. As people were congratulating him in the hall, he noticed a woman looking fixedly at him. He went over to her and said, “Madam, do you want to speak to me?”
“Hello, Norman,” the woman said,” don’t you know me?”
“You have a familiar look,” said Dr. Peale, “but I can’t place you.”
“I went to high school with you,” she said. “You know, you’ve done very well with what little you had to start with.”
Dr. Peale was hurt to the quick by this remark. But after giving some thought to it, he concluded, “You know, that’s really what I’ve been speaking about and writing about all my life: “Do the best you can with what little talent you’ve got, and you’ll go far.”
If one aspires to begin anything to excel oneself, the first step is to know one’s potentialities and what one has. Everyone is good at something. Find out what for you are good at. Then start doing your best with that talent that you have. Stop comparing and competing. Beware that you are unique. Everyday introspect yourself to see that how have you refined the little you have got. Keep in mind the Chinese Proverb, ” A thousand’s mile journey starts with a single step.” A little effort a day will eventually bring in a lot of effort.
