The people who have a voice and influence in the society are those who are bold enough to say who they are and what they have. Those who are silent (even if they had spectacular skills and abilities) are compelled to listen to those who are saying something.
You cannot go far enough if you’re ignorant of your peculiarity in this world. You have something that no one else has: a unique mix of skills, character, passion, knowledge and experience. By acknowledging the special gifts and abilities that you have, you compel yourself to line up in your performance and productivity.
Whatever gift you have don’t hide it, showcase it to the world. And don’t stop working on it. Not long enough people will notice you.
