Don’t Hide Your Talent
Most students concentrate their whole mind upon study. I want all Borim stundents to try to find their own talent. There was a man who played the piano in a local bar. He was a good piano player and he played every night. People came just to hear him play. One night, a customer said to him, “I don’t want to hear you just play any longer.

I want you to sing.” The piano player said, “I’m sorry. I don’t sing. I just play the piano.” “The customer did not give up. He went to the manager and complained, “I’m tired of listening to the piano. I want that man to sing.”

The manager shouted to the piano player, “Hey! If you want your pay, sing a song. The customer requests you to sing.” He needed to get paid, so he sang a song. The piano player sang in public for the very first time.

Everybody was delighted to hear his beautiful song. He had a talent that he was not aware of. Because the customer made a no-name piano player sing in a no-name bar, the piano player realized what talent he had. In the 1950s, he became one of the most famous entertainers in the United States. Can you guess who he was? He was the famous Nat King Cole. You, too, have talents. You may not feel that your talents are valuable, but they may be much better than you think. If you practice, you will improve your skills. It is better not to ask “What talent do I have?” but “How will I develop the ability that I have?”
