Talent – natural ability to do something well. These are God given abilities that are inborn. We all wish we could unveil our talents and gifts but sometimes, it’s not as easy as it sounds. Asking yourself these few questions will get you closer:
What comes naturally to you?
We have activities that come naturally to us. Those that need little effort or prior knowledge yet you excel in them. There is always readiness, excitement, and willingness to do them e.g. painting, cracking jokes, drawing, cleaning, organising, etc.
We lose track of time when we engage in them. Everything within us synchronises and before we realise, its meal time and it hasn’t crossed our mind. List activities that fit this criterion, go through each and come up with the final list.
What are you most critical about?
The world faces so many issues, but among them, one thing resonates with you more. Strong actionable plans come into play and you even take time to research, come up solutions, and strategies on the issue.
You are particularly vocal about it. Friends are always asking you to take a break. Friends might give you a nickname from that or they already did.
What do you receive most praise from?
Friends and family play a big role in this. Ask them to help. Let it be a serious exercise and prepare a questionnaire for them. Give simple instructions and what you expect from the exercise. The answers provided will help you to narrow down. Sometimes we don’t even recognise our talent since we don’t put much effort.
People get startled when they learn what you managed without prior education or within a limited time. To them, it was such a handy task but to you – a smooth one.
What would you do if money weren’t an issue?
Let your mind drift off wonderland;
smile, as you think it’s just beautiful. Take a moment to take it in, then
get back to the real world.
Start small and move your way up the ladder. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Great things take time so, exercise patience and resilience.
Discovering what you good at should be something you strive to achieve in your lifetime. So much satisfaction and joy comes with it, as you get in sync with your inner self.
As the bible says, your gift and talent will set a table for you among the high and mighty.
