At a point in life, we need to stop and ask ourselves this question
"I'm I in the right place? "
" What else can I use my hands, legs, talent, etc for? "
Let me use the below story of a camel and her baby as a case study.
A mother and a baby camel were lying around under a tree.
Then the baby camel asked, “Why do camels have humps?”
The mother camel considered this and said, “We are desert
animals so we have the humps to store water so we can survive
with very little water.”
The baby camel thought for a moment then said, “Ok…why are our
legs long and our feet rounded?”
The mama replied, “They are meant for walking in the desert.”
The baby paused. After a beat, the camel asked, “Why are our
eyelashes long? Sometimes they get in my way.”
The mama responded, “Those long thick eyelashes protect your
eyes from the desert sand when it blows in the wind.
The baby thought and thought. Then he said, “I see. So the hump is
to store water when we are in the desert, the legs are for walking
through the desert and these eye lashes protect my eyes from the
desert then why are we in the Zoo?”
The Lesson: Skills and abilities are only useful if you are in the
right place at the right time. Otherwise they go to waste.
So, try to identify the usefulness of what you carry, and make adequate use of it.
