Invest in Yourself Finding Your True Talent:
Each and every one of you has a gift you can use to create your life and impact the lives of other people. Inside of us are hidden abilities, talents, and skills that can make a difference. If you do not know what those talents and skills are, search for them. Go out of your way to make that discovery. Trudge through the mud, crawl through the dirt, do what ever it takes to find that hidden gift inside of you, no one else will. Finding that hidden talent has the potential to be life changing and open up a brand new world of hope and possibilities. Your talents are intimate and personal and can only be discovered by you.
Understand that most people are born with several natural talents, but few find that true talent that can change everything. That one talent you can use to build a successful life. Search for one talent that will get you out of bed and keep you up late into the night because it feels so good doing what you love.
Success is not given but earned.
- What do you think and talk about most
- What is your ambition
- What is easy
1. What do you think about most?
In most cases our true talent can be found in what we think about most. People who are writers are writers because it is what they think about most, and it lines with their vision and dreams. People who grow companies become entrepreneurs because it lines up with their vision and desires. If you are having trouble finding that one true talent search in that area and you may make a discovery that will change your life forever.
2. What is your ambition?
Ambitions is a great tool to the road of success, it is inspiration born deep in the heart and mind. Think about what you want to accomplish. What is it you want to do more than any other thing in the world? And most of the time your true talents can be discovered in that one great ambition you have for yourself.
If you are unsure what your ambitions are and what you think about most then explore the world around you. Try new things and hobbies. What hobbies would you like to do? What activity would be fun and exciting? Experiment and play around and eventually you will discover what it is.
If you are unable to find that true talent then ask those around you who know you best, and you will be surprised how well these people actually know you. In most cases they well know your basic mindset and habits. They will know what you enjoy and what you hate.
5. What is Easy?
Knowing what is easy for you to do is a great place to find that hidden talent. A lot of the times our true talent is mixed with our natural abilities. So ask yourself and sit down with a piece of paper and make a list of things you find easy to do, and maybe hidden on that paper is your true talent.
Finding that true talent is the easy part, cultivating it and making it grow is the challenge. A lot of people in life know what their true talent is, and know it has the power to change their lives, but do nothing to cultivate that talent, and that is the greatest of all failures.
Knowing what your talent is and actually working hard and let that talent help achieve your dreams are two different things. Once the talent is found you must be willing to work hard using that talent to achieve success. Sad part is, most people are either to lazy or afraid to pursue their dreams. It easy to go to work eight hours a day and come home and set on a couch than it is pursuing your passions. Do not be one of those people. They have already failed. The road will be hard and bumpy and you will fall many times. You will get kick and abused, and at times it will seem so hard that it feels impossible for anyone to do it, that all people who have success it was given to them. NO. Do not think that that way. All successful people worked their asses off to get where they are. They found that one true talent and cultivated it and used it as a tool to achieve their dreams.
DO NOT GIVE UP!
Use your talent, work really hard and succeed. Believe in yourself and in your abilities, and success will be waiting to greet and congratulate you for the hard work you put in. Remember, success is picky, and it will only show itself to you once it thinks you deserve that title. And it is that aspect that makes success great, you have worked hard, been beaten, kicked, cursed, fail to your knees, and yet you keep up the fight and won. It’s the knowing you couldn’t be stopped that makes success rewarding. Like Babe Ruth once said, “It's hard to beat a person who never gives up.”
