How to discover purpose


What is the difference between talent and purpose?


Though different, they are actually linked to each other. Think of talents as tools in completing a certain task. This task is referred to as purpose - why you are here. You cannot fix a meal without the necessary tools and ingredients. In the same way, you cannot fulfill purpose without the necessary talents.

Your talents give an idea of what purpose is but they do not answer the question of purpose in certainty. So we should also be careful in drawing conclusions as regards purpose in relation to our talents.

Bottom line, talents are the tools required to fulfil purpose.
