A wrapped gift can be anything you imagine.
While it stays in the wrappings it is perfect, because you can't be sure what it is. It hasn't had the chance to be a disappointment. You haven't become frustrated trying to make it work. You haven't had the chance to be bored by it. You can imagine doing great things with it, being a 'success', that it will change your life.
A gift will stay that way - a perfect dream - unless you unwrap it.
When you unwrap a gift, you take the chance that it's not what you were expecting, not what you wanted, not what you dreamed of. It may be something that takes a lot of hard work to master.
Will you take the chance? Will you open the gift so that it can be used?
Or will you leave it in the wrapping - perfect but useless?
