We ALL have the ability to SEE, HEAR, and FEEL the subtle vibrations emanating from the energy that exists all around and through us. I call these the subtle, psychic, or intuitive skills. Since we only use about 10% of our brain, most of us don’t have that part turned on. Telepathy, ESP, being clairvoyant, clairaudient, clairsentient and all the rest are God-given talents we all have access to.
Most people are born with all these abilities.
Examples of few successful people who were born with god- given talent:
Will Smith was the second of four children of Caroline (school board employee) and Willard C Smith Sr. (owner of a refrigeration company). Smith is of both African American and Native American heritage. He grew up in middle class area in West Philadelphia called Wynnefield. Will attended the Overbrook High School located in the Overbrook section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He got the nickname “Prince” because of the way he could charm his way out of trouble. Bright student Will also signed up with the high-status Julia Reynolds Masterman Laboratory and Demonstration School in Philadelphia.
Pursuing music, he met Jeffrey A. Townes at a party and they soon began performing together as “DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince”. When the duo took off in popularity, Smith made and spent a lot of money on a house, cars and jewelry; leading to his near bankruptcy in his early twenties.
Luckily, in 1989, he met Benny Medina, who had an idea for a sitcom based on his life in Beverly Hills. Smith loved the idea as did NBC which put on the “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” (1990). The plot was simple – Will basically played himself; a street-smart West Philly kid transplanted to Beverly Hills. The series lasted 6 years. During that time, he ventured into movies where the critics took note of him in Six Degrees of Separation (1993). With the success that came with the action picture Bad Boys (1995), Will’s movie career was set. He had a huge Blockbuster hit with Independence Day (1996), where he plays the alien-battling Marine Corps Captain Steven Hiller.
Few best movies:
- Independence Day
- Men in Black (1997)
- Men in Black II (2002)
- Enemy of the State (1998)
- I, Robot (2004)
- The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)
- Seven Pounds (2008)

“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”
Steve Jobs….the man who transformed the world with his innovative approach, ideas and creativity. The former Apple CEO was a visionary in the world of computing and is largely responsible for the level at which computers are integrated with our everyday lives. Initially, from a mouse to making of iMac, iPod, iPad, iTunes and iPhone….this guy revolutionized the world of computers.
Steven Jobs was born February 24, 1955, in San Francisco, California, and was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs and grew up in Silicon Valley. He grew up with one sister, Patty. Paul Jobs was skilled at fixing cars.
As a child, Jobs preferred doing things by himself. He swam competitively, but was not interested in team sports or other group activities. At an early age his interests developed in electronics and gadgetry. He spent a lot of time working in the garage workshop of a neighbor who worked at Hewlett-Packard, an electronics manufacturer.
Following his interests, Jobs also enrolled in the Hewlett-Packard Explorer Club. There he saw engineers exhibit new electronic products, and saw a computer at the age of twelve for the first time. He was very impressed, and knew right away that he wanted to work with computers.When Steve arrived in Homestead High School, he enrolled in a popular electronics class. After graduating from high school in 1972, Jobs attended Reed College in Portland, Oregon, for two years. However, the tuition for Reed was so expensive that Paul and Clara could hardly afford it. Yet they were bound by the promise they’d make to their son’s biological mother, so they spent almost their entire life’s savings on their son’s higher education.
Steve only officially stayed for a couple of months at Reed. He dropped out before Christmas. He dropped out after one semester to visit India and study eastern religions in the summer of 1974.
In 1975 Jobs joined a group known as the Homebrew Computer Club. One member, a technical whiz named Steve Wozniak (1950), was trying to build a small computer. Jobs became fascinated with the marketing potential of such a computer. In 1976 he and Wozniak formed their own company. They called it Apple Computer Company, in memory of a happy summer Jobs had spent picking apples. They raised $1,300 in startup money by selling Jobs’s microbus and Wozniak’s calculator. At first they sold circuit boards (the boards that hold the internal components of a computer) while they worked on the computer prototype.
Looking at the self created huge computer, Steve realized there was a huge gap in the computer market. Advances in electronics, meant that computer components were getting smaller and the power of the computer was increasing. Jobs and Wozniak redesigned their computer, with the idea of selling it to individual users. The Apple II went to market in 1977, with impressive first year sales of $2.7 million. The company’s sales grew to $200 million within three years. This was one of the most phenomenal cases of corporate growth in U.S. history. Jobs and Wozniak had opened an entirely new market—personal computers.
The Macintosh came into being in 1984, a revolutionary new model. It took the graphical user interface software – the desktop and mouse-controlled cursor you see on your screen today – from an earlier personal computer design called ‘Lisa’ and made it faster, far more affordable and a commercial success. However, The Macintosh did not sell well to businesses and this failure of the Macintosh signaled the beginning of Jobs’s downfall at Apple.
Jobs lured John Scullery away from Pepsi-Cola in 1983 to become Apple’s chief executive. When sales started to slump in 1984 Jobs’ relationship with Scullery began to deteriorate – a power struggle ensued that eventually saw Jobs resign.
In 1986 Jobs founded a new company called NeXT – abandoning the company’s hardware division in the early nineties to concentrate on software development. In 1996 Apple bought NeXT for $429 million and Jobs returned to Apple as an adviser where he was then made chief executive in 1997.
Apple’s iPod portable music player and iTunes store is heralded as revolutionizing the way people listen to and buy music. Launched in 2001 Apple’s first iPod cost $499, paving the iPod Nano, iPod Touch and iPod Shuffle, which came later. iTunes was also launched in 2001, adding an online music store in 2003 – the first ever legal online music store. As of this year iTunes has sold over 16 billion songs.
Is also Chairman and CEO of Pixar, the Academy-Award-winning computer animation studios which he co-founded in 1986. Pixar’s first feature film, Toy Story, was released by Walt Disney Pictures in November 1995 and became the highest domestic grossing film released that year and the third highest grossing animated film of all time.
His illness and Last days:
Jobs was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2004. After surgery he returned to Apple, but had to take another leave of absence in 2009, ultimately undergoing a liver transplant. He took his final leave of absence in January 2011.
In August, he formally resigned as CEO. “I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come,” Jobs said in a letter addressed “to the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community.”
However, on 5th October, 2011, the co-founder of Apple Inc, one of the world’s great entrepreneurs, was surrounded by his wife and immediate family when he died in Palo Alto, California.
Birth Name : Michael Joseph Jackson
American superstar Michael Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana, on August 29, 1958, and entertained audiences nearly his entire life. His father,Joe Jackson, had been a guitarist but was forced to give up his musical ambitions following his marriage to Katherine (Scruse). Together they prodded their growing family’s musical interests at home. By the early 1960s, the older boys Jackie, Tito and Jermaine had begun performing around the city; by 1964, Michael and Marlon had joined in.
A musical prodigy, Michael’s singing and dancing talents were amazingly mature, and he soon became the dominant voice and focus of TheJackson 5. An opening act for such soul groups as the O-Jays and James Brown, it was Gladys Knight (not Diana Ross) who officially brought the group to Berry Gordy’s attention, and by 1969, the boys were producing back-to-back chart-busting hits as Motown artists (“I Want You Back,” “ABC,” “Never Can Say Goodbye,” “Got to Be There,” etc.). As a product of the 1970s, the boys emerged as one of the most accomplished black pop/soul vocal groups in music history, successfully evolving from a group like The Temptations to a disco phenomenon.
Solo success for Michael was inevitable, and by the 1980s, he had become infinitely more popular than his brotherly group. Record sales consistently orbited, culminating in the biggest-selling album of all time, “Thriller” in 1982. A TV natural, he ventured rather uneasily into films, such as playing the Scarecrow in The Wiz (1978), but had much better luck with elaborate music videos.
In the 1990s, the downside as an 1980s pop phenomenon began to rear itself. Michael grew terribly child-like and introverted by his peerless celebrity. A rather timorous, androgynous figure to begin with, his physical appearance began to change drastically, and his behavior grew alarmingly bizarre, making him a consistent target for scandal-making, despite his numerous charitable acts. Two brief marriages — one to Elvis Presley’s daughter Lisa Marie Presley — were forged and two children produced by his second wife during that time, but the purposes behind them appeared image-oriented. Despite it all, Michael Jackson’s passion and artistry as a singer, dancer, writer and businessman are unparalleled, and it is these prodigious talents that will ultimately prevail over the extremely negative aspects of his seriously troubled adult life.
For it all to end on June 25, 2009, with his sudden death at age 50 of a drug-induced cardiac arrest, just as he was coming out of a four-year reclusive period and rehearsing for a sold-out London concert “comeback” in July, seems uncommonly cruel and tragic. Millions upon millions of dedicated fans will remember where they were “the day Michael died”.
Amitabh Bachchan, A Superstar of Indian movies
Amitabh Bachchan is an Indian film actor, born on 11 October 1942 at Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India. Son of well known poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan and Teji Bachchan. He has a brother named Ajitabh. He completed his education from Uttar Pradesh and moved to Bombay to find work as a film star, in vain though, as film-makers preferred someone with a fairer skin, and he was not quite fair enough. But they did use one of his other assets – his deep baritone voice – which was used for narration and background commentary. He was successful in being cast in Saat Hindustani. He got his break in Bollywood after a letter of introduction from the then Prime Minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi, as he was a friend of her son, Rajiv Gandhi. This is how Amitabh made an entry in Bollywood, He first gained popularity in the early 1970s as the “angry young man” of Hindi cinema starting with Zanjeer, co-starred with his future wife Jaya Bhaduri, and since then there has been no looking back.
He married Jaya Bhaduri, an actress in her own rights, and they had two children, Shweta and Abhishek. Shweta is married, lives a non-filmy life and has two children.
After a four year break, he was back in the unsuccessful Mrityudaata (1997), a comeback which the actor wanted to forget. Critics written him off but his career was saved with Bade Miyan Chote Miyan (1998). But four flops in 1999 and incurring debt of over 90 Crores rupees of his sinking company ABCL saw him at an all-time low. To make matters worse, after the defeat of the Congress party, Amitabh lost considerable political support, the opposition made him a target, and his credit rating deteriorated to such an extent that a leading nationalized bank, Canara Bank, sued him for outstanding loans. He did bounce back, presenting the Indian version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire called “Kaun Banega Crorepati?” (2000). After a series of hits with Mohabbatein (2000), Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham… (2001) and Baghban (2003) and Khakee (2004), Sarkar, this elderly Bachchan is showing no signs of slowing down and proving the critics wrong once again.
His son, Abhishek, is also an actor by his own rights.
Amitabh and Jaya were interested in getting Abhishek married to Karishma Kapoor, the daughter of Babita and Randhir Kapoor, they went through a formal engagement, but later broke it off.
The former Miss World and Bollywood actress, Aishwarya Rai, and Abhishek, were formally engaged on Sunday January 14, 2007, at the Bachchan residence in Juhu, Bombay, with the marriage taking place at the Bachchan residence on April 20, 2007.
On November 16, 2011, he became a Dada (Paternal Grandfather) when Aishwarya gave birth to a daughter in Mumbai Hospital. He is already a Nana (maternal grandfather) to Navya Naveli and Agastye – Shweta’s children.
He continues to be one of the busiest actors and singers in Bollywood as well as on TV, as can be seen from the commercials that he appears on, especially on Sahara One. Looks like there are no limits for this super-star and once the “Angry Young Man” of Bollywood.
