There is no possibility of excelling in an environment that limits your skills. Your knowledge. Your potentials.
That’s why doctors are not given the work of a lawyer to do. Neither will the work of an engineer be given to a lawyer. If that happens, there is no doubt the result will be disastrous.
All man trive in areas were he is competent, where he has ability and the know how skills to perform. We have a task, the task is to fine out what we are good at, to discover our ability, or capacity and at thesame time to find out where our potential will be effective, where it will be useful. If you don’t have any skills or ability…. There are needs that you have develop as many as you can.
The story of a mother and a curious baby camel tells more of how we can be useless living, work and even learning in the wrong environment.
Read the story: A mother and a baby camel were lying around, and suddenly the baby camel asked, “mother, may I ask you some questions? The mother said, “Sure! Why son, is there something bothering you? Baby said, “Why do camels have humps?” The mother said, “Well son, we are desert animals, we need the humps to store water and we are known to survive without water”.
Baby said, “Okay, then why are our legs long and our feet rounded?” The mother said, “Son, obviously they are meant for walking in the desert. You know with these legs I can move around the desert better than anyone does!” Baby said, “Okay, then why are our eyelashes long? Sometimes it bothers my sight”. Mother with pride said, “My son, those long thick eyelashes are your protective cover. They help to protect your eyes from the desert sand and wind”.
Baby after thinking said, “I see. So the hump is to store water when we are in the desert, the legs are for walking the desert and these eyelashes protect my eyes from the desert than what in god’s name are we doing here in the Zoo?
moral lesson, your abilities, your skills and your know how, will be useful and effective when you are at the right place, not position.
