Are you in a Zoo?
Here’s a story for those who are not able to use their strengths on a daily basis…
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 mother camel 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 mother 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 eyelashes protect my eyes from the desert. So why are we in the Zoo?”
Your talents and strengths only matters if you are somewhere it can be used.
