What is Your Contribution? Episode 66

Contribution, this is number six in our series on the Six Basic Human Needs.

Contribution, what does it mean?  Why is it one of the six basic human needs that we all have?

We all have dreams and aspirations.  When we were young maybe we wanted to go to the stars or even become the president.  But what are you good at?  What is it that you can do naturally?  We look around us and try to do what others do, but what is your special skill?  Using that skill, that talent, is your contribution.  A contribution is using our talents to make this world a better place. 

Contribution gives us a sense of value and worth.  It is the knowledge that we are making a difference in someone’s life.

There is a Bible parable about “Talents”.  Summarized it is about a master that gives out some talents to his workers before he leaves on a trip.  When he returns, he calls his workers unto himself and wants to see how they used the talents he gave them.  What contribution did they make?  Two of the workers doubled their talents.  The master was so happy with them that he gave them a reward.  One of the workers just set his talent aside and never used it.  The master was very angry with this worker and took away his talent.  In this parable the master may sound mean, but the workers were given these talents to be used, to contribute; to make a difference in someone’s life. 

Take the talents that you have and use them.  Don’t try to be someone else.  Don’t let someone take away your talent by listening to their negativity.  This will only leave you angry and feel like the world took something from you.  Go out and use your talent.  You may need to learn something new.  Take advantage of the tools that are out there to help you grow.  There are a lot of on-line classes.  Take a few and grow your talent.  Even if you just have one talent; take that one talent and use it.  You may become the next Einstein or Tesla. 

Use your talent to help other keep “Surging Forward” and make this world a better place.

Thank you
