Meet Jack : MASTER OF MANY TRADES
WHAT’S THE DIEFFERENCE BETWEEN GIFT TALENT AND SKILLS?
TOLU C: there is a thin dividing line between these three, you are born with a gift, you don’t have to learn it or study for it, it is natural. Using myself as an example as a kid music was natural to me because my dad all the musical instruments at home. A talent is something that attracts you to it, there is a thin line between talent and gift, and skills are acquired. Now music was natural with me but I had to train them to be skillful, so you are born with a gift, you have a knack for talent and skills are acquired.
IS THERE A PATTERN TO DEVELOPING YOUR NATURAL BORN GIFT?
TOLU C: self-discovery is very important and also identification of purpose, using myself as an example I have to train myself to develop myself in the music world. From that point you discover what your purpose is, you have to go through a long process to fine tune yourself, I will like to be like Apostle Paul when I leave this earth I will be empty. For every multi skilled person there is an underlining assignment that will make you use all these skills. Back then after all the running around I calmed down and I said it’s not all about money, I was also discovered by a man of God, who prayed for me and anointed me, after then I still didn’t get it so I prayed and fasted, I soothe the face of God. If you see yourself having flare for different things pay more attention to yourself, isolate yourself and go into prayers. God gave everybody talent according to their ability. For musical people you dwell on the skill it is not good to commercialize on time, Exodus 31 verse 1. Get a bearing and direction for your life, if God doesn’t engage you the devil will engage you, so you need to know what you are doing, let the spirit of God fill up the entire space and fulfill your purpose. Jack of all trade master of none does not appear in my own book, do not mortgage the future discover yourself and your purpose run with it because at some point you will pay for everything you don’t know in cash or kind.
AM A MEDICAL STUDENT BUT I LOVE FASHION AND I’M ALWAYS BUSY WHAT DO I DO?
TOLU C: There is always a price to pay for everything, it can never be convenient. If it is really your passion your body will come alive, if it is your default you will ignite.
DURING THE TEN YEARS WHILE YOU WERE WORKING IN THE BANK HOW DID YOU MANAGE YOUR TIME?
TOLU C: I was able to achieve being good at my job and organizing my concert, I was so interested in understanding the system, because it is the seed I had sown then that is manifesting for me now. A lot of people are torn between jobs and are not happy. There is always a price to pay for everything. Is about time management and being smart, also I have no leisure time I enjoy what I do, it doesn’t feel stressful, and I’m an early riser, you can’t quantify what one hour can do for you, it’s about learning to manage your time, you need to partition your life in a way that it will work for you, plus don’t get it wrong during marriage it can throw you off balance. Be a master of your body, know when to draw the line, when to take a break and when to move with all force.
HOW DID YOU COPE WITH YOUR PARENTS?
TOLU C: my parents were not nice, my mum was a teacher and a deaconess, my father an evangelist, I had it very rough, and the first keyboard my dad brought it home, all the skills I have were self thought. It was a tough one but my mind was built, and children of now you have no excuse because the internet has made it easy. The day my dad saw2 a saxophone playing into a computer was the day he gave me space. Through it all everything work together for good for those who are called for the purpose, God takes us through different phases of life, just glide with it, follow the leading of God be the eagle and you will get to your destination.
