I discovered that myself and others are guilty, at one time or another, of being jealous of people with natural talent. A talent that they were born with and discovered that they had a natural ability of doing a task without much effort or trial and error to accomplish. While everyone looks at them with a bit of jealousy, I see the other side of the coin. Most of the time people tend to take something like this for granted and let it go to the way side. The reason being is that they did not have to earn it, it was just a gift. And how do humans act with a gift? Typically it gets used, abused and tossed to the side. There was no time, money, trial and error, failure and success attached to it. Therefore, there is no appreciation to have earned it. There is a lot to be said about earning and striving for something, you will at the very least, respect it and have less of a chance to take it for granted. In all reality our money and time our among the most valuable things we have. And when we use them to attain something rather then have something given to us, we appreciate it more. There is a reward there and a deeper connection to what we have to strive for. So if you have a natural ability or talent to do something, learn to respect it and appreciate it and try not to take for granted. For the ones on the other side of the spectrum, leave the jealousy at the door and go earn it. You'll have a deeper respect for yourself and a appreciation for what you have earned.
