One of the greatest challenges for new entrepreneurs is determining what their gifts are. What are their strengths? For me, this is also determining your talent. If that is you, you may want to check one of my recent posts, 6 Ways To Find Your Strength. Finding your strength, I believe, is nothing more than having conscious awareness of the gift that God has given you. Once you recognize your gift, you invest the time and energy to get better and do better.
You Do Have A Talent
“Your talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.” -Leo Buscaglia. We all have a talent because we all were created with a purpose. There is something that you naturally do, without much effort, that others would find difficult or challenging. For you, it Is much like breathing. As a matter of fact, you would probably don’t think much about it. However, I hope that you will be more conscious of that gift. Are you using it? Are you doing the things you were called to do? If you are, awesome! If you aren’t what’s stopping, you?
It Is Time To Use Your Talent
Have you ever considered this, your talent cost you nothing? I mean it is this gift that you are born with. Have you ever noticed that some people with the same gift utilize it different? Some people take that gift and use it to make theirs, and other peoples live better, however, some may be sitting on your gift. Why is that? Consider this, “Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.”-Stephen King having talent is not enough. It's about you are taking that talent and investing some work.
Invest The Time Into Your Talent
Perhaps your gift is writing. You have this amazing gift to make words leap off a page and paint these amazing images in the reader's mind. Now if you have this talent, and never write a word, how doe that helps anyone. What if you take that talent, and teach. Or what if you decide to write a children’s book. Perhaps an amazing novel. You will help others by providing a simple mental escape. Everyone needs that break. Perhaps you may feel like you are not good enough. Maybe you aren’t the best, but that should not stop you from trying. “There may be people who have more talent than you, but there's no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do - and I believe that.” Derek Jeter.
Having a talent is really not that extraordinary because everyone has a talent. What makes you extraordinary taking that talent, and using it and improving on it. Having the courage to step up and share that talent with the world.
