Well, we are all born with gifts. Some people are exceptionally good at math for instance! Others, music! It is not improbable that people could have certain gifts when it comes to magic as well. I, for instance, take a liking to divination and find that I am fairly good at it.
But controlling elements is not a gift someone would have. You can't control the elements and kinesis(controlling fire, water, wind, objects, etc. with only your mind)is not possible.
