"Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best."
Henry Van Dyke (1852 -1943)
Henry Van Dyke was known for his teaching and writing. He was passionate about free public education for people all over the world.
There are always times when we doubt ourselves and compare ourselves to others. Sometimes we think we will never be able to achieve our goals because we are not the "best" at something we love. However, it is important to remember that each of us is special in our own way and we can use what makes us special to succeed.
Maybe you are a talented painter, athlete, singer, writer, or perhaps you're very skilled on a computer. Whatever your talent is, just remember that it doesn't matter if you are the best at it. There is a place for everyone in this world, and you have completely unique qualities that set you apart from everyone else. It's your individuality that will help you succeed at your passion!
