Dear children, abilities are in born gifts to all human-beings. You too, have got some special talent created within that needs to be developed.
However, you cannot discover that special gift unless you practice in line with it. For example one with a talent of playing football cannot sit back and find it in him unless he went to the pitch and tried it out with others.
When you socialise with other people and get involved in different activities, you get a chance of discovering the talents within you.
Talents are important in our lives because they make us happy and physically fit; they also help us do things we love thus doing them better.
Other people make a living out of those talents even if they do not go to school. Talents have made many people rich, travel to different places and get many friends.
So dear children, let us always try to identify our talents, develop them through practice. Even if we fail, just persist and keep trying. By the way, your practicing can be another way of utilizing your leisure time to kill boredom.
