Have you ever wondered, Why we weren’t ever taught to master our gifts? We’re told; go to school get an education and work for someone else. So we go to school for years, accumulate student loan debt, then become an employee to pay off that debt.
A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men. (Proverbs 18:16)
Instead of being employed be deployed. Find a positive influential mentor, absorb their skills and knowledge. Perfect your character; become your best self. Eventually, it will be your turn to mentor others from the next generation.
