Talents Vs. Gifts ("Calling or Potential")

I recently did 2 "talks" as a guest speaker at Clark Summit University.  My first talk was about the difference between pursuing your full potential and pursing your Godly calling.  The second talk was the difference between talents (human abilities) and God-given gifts.  This the final slide from that second talk. 

As leaders please consider with me what we tell and teach our students.  There are many adults that are telling young people things like "you have great potential"... "you are wasting your potential"... "you are not living up to your potential".  Is that are role and message?  Or is it something different and more powerful to teach, lead, and mentor students to find God's calling in their life and use their gifts!?
