Can ONE talented people inspires to the birth of a generation of revolutionist? YES, Jesus did. He's not only talented, He is God! His life forever inspires the whole world. In this article, I would like to draw your attention to few guys who i believe very very very few of you know them.
I was practising my chops (drums rudiments that is!) just now while watching X-Games classics on ESPN. I was touched by the courage, persistence and disciplines of the athletes. Btw, this are X-games athletes...making big tricks with skateboard, BMX, motocross bike, rally car, inline skate etc. You might not have heard of a guy named Mat Hoffman. He started revolutionary BMX tricks that inspires today's generation of BMXers. Tony Hawk, a pro skater also did the same thing with skateboard. He come up with lots of tricks that evolved by the later generation of skaters. These two guys inspires a generation of revolutianist among the X-gamers and until today, most of the tricks we see are all inspired by both of them.
Having said that, I want u guys to check out this guy name Danny Way, Jake Brown, Travis Pastrana..watch their videos in youtube and you'll amazed what those people can do to impact their generation & the next generation. They broke their bones, fail to do tricks but yet they still keep on moving, they still keep on believing in their talent. They just focus on their talent and with work hard and persistence, they reach their goal. By the way, Danny Way is the first and only skaters so far, who manage to jump over the Great Of China with skateboard! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdamrGj7bsg&feature=related)
Now, can you imagine in our east malaysian society, a guy who're professional skaters or dancers or singers or movie maker who makes a huge impact in their generation, thus inspiring the birth of a generation of revolutionist. Can you imagine, a person who's talent is to draw comics can make a huge impact in our generation? Can you imagine a person who's life is about futsal can make a huge impact in our nation? I do. I have seen lots of potential in this generation of ours. Church should be alert and discover these hidden talents.
All of us are gifted with talents, never let anybody put u down just because your talent is not famous/interesting compare to others. Don't give up on your talents when people say being succesful is to be a businessman, lawyer, doctor, engineer etc. who earn more than 10k a month! Use whatever talent you have. Starting today, pray to God and believe that He will use you to inspire a generation of revolutionist who will impact the nation. I'm still in the process of sharpening my talents & discovering a new one...this will never stop and i hope the same goes with you too. OK, need to return to my practice now...have an inspiring week guys! God bless
