The story of talents is actually from the Christian Bible*, but likely written by Jews and edited by a variety of God fearing and not since then.
Without being religious about it, do you know what it is about?
It’s about learning about yourself, finding the gifts(notable abilities) you have, developing them and using them from then on. You don’t have to be a superstar. Just use your talents.
In our world, it is preferred we use them for good things.
The world and other people nearby may not be able to pay you for using them, but it doesn’t mean you should bury them.
*There may be other similar stories in other books and religions.
