Many people bury their talents in the daily routine. “I work all day, I get tired, I have no time to think about the talents”, “I am the office worker, I can do something at my work but in other fields I’m worthless” – does it seem familiar to you? We often compare ourselves with others. From this point, the destructive thoughts start coming to our mind, causing a lack of faith in ourselves and as a result, we can’t recognize the talents. This is particularly evident when you enter the certain age. One of the toughest ages is the 28-30 years. A person of 21 years sees the world at a glance, he has a lot of prospects and plans, but it is sometimes difficult to fully realize them in conceived time. Many people, having reached 30 years, find out that they perform no more than 10% of what they planned. But this is OK as when you are young, you do not realize all the underwater stones. But when you try to sum up what you have already achieved in life, or to think about your real destination, first spend some time to find out, what talents you have and whether you use all your possibilities!
1. Recall your dreams.
Did you want to learn how to make paper-mache crafts? Or did you dream of drawing very well but parents decided that chess is a better hobby? List all your unrealized dreams, long-forgotten favorite activities, professions you were dreaming about but abandoned for some reason.
2. What you got to do to embody your dreams?
For every point, count skills that you already have and mark skills and abilities you need to learn or develop to achieve this particular dream. It often happens that childish dreams reflect our innate abilities and natural aptitude to some activity – keep it in your mind while making this list.
3. Find the activity you like the most.
Check this list for something, you’d like to do now. Do you have a great voice? Attend the vocal lessons then! Do you want to become a makeup artist? Find some classes! Do you want to travel and acquire some writing skills? Start your blog – many companies invest in popular writers, while they advertise some camping products or touristic agency! Make an orientation not on the profit, but on your inner desire. Something you feel happy while doing it.
5. Develop yourself.
Talent can be small. But when you start developing it, it can become great. And there is no person, who is talented only in one field. You consider your pot crafting like working skills, but not every person can make beautiful pots. You can make pictures on acrylic nails, but what if you try to paint stopper and create the new trend in art? Try to combine your skills and talents!
