Can we cultivate our ability that did not naturally born? I think with interests and also good opportunity can make it work.Things can change through its environment so i believe on that.Have a wonderful day.

I think everything starts in our mind, I was born with the brain and the other physical parts. My mind was able to learn the languages and the skill of walking and talking. I built my personality according to the environment I got around me. I think there is no doubt that one can learn anything if the right environment is provided. Now if you ask me other ways, that can man fly without the wings or airplane then it is something which has not yet happened, so I am not sure.

You are so right,people get change through the aound atmosphere,so we can learn something.Thus this also has something to do with our mind and how much we want to make it.Thanks for share and have a great day.

I read and am told by many people that the young people have ability to learn the new things, because their mind is open to new things, but as the person grow old, there are many beliefs and memories in his mind that it is hard to store new one in. What do you think?

I think that we have to have something there to begin with if we are to cultivate it. It depends upon how much we have developed each ability previously & our need or wish for it to develop that will determine how much help we need with cultivating it. For example, I find myself "naturally good" (not perfect) at some things, but less so at others & absolutely terrible at others! If I wish for a certain ability or have a pressing need for it, I need to find a way to develop it either on my own or with a teacher, as is appropriate for my level. Also, as you say, our environment can contribute to or detract from cultivation of our abilities, but we can also change our environment or move if it is not suitable. Wishing you well!

That is very possible. for as long as we put our hearts and minds into something, everything is possible to happen.
