You know talent is a natural thing. You born with it in some rare cases. Everyone has some talents but not everybody knows what their talent is? To find out our talents, we must experiment. It is extremely rare to find your talents straight out of high school. It is something you are naturally good at, combined with a lot of experience over the years.
Now the question is, How should we discover our hidden talent? It’s not an easy job, but not so hard either. There are ways which can help you discover your talents. Make sure you practice each of them:
‘Find out our strengths’. Make a list of your core strengths. And by that I meant your ‘real’ strengths, not those strengths you casually talks about everywhere. Sneak a peek in your soul and discover things at which you are good at, or great.
‘Ask your Friends/Colleagues what your best and worst qualities are’. Sometimes we can’t decide what our qualities are, specially the best and worst one. So take help of your most trusted friends and ask them honestly what your best and worst qualities are. Knowing your best quality will help you discover your talents, and knowing your bad quality will help you to correct it slowly but effectively.
‘Take Action’. Don’t just think too much, try to do something you like. Lets take an example of blogging- my colleague took almost an year to decide whether he should start blogging or not. He wasted a whole year trapped inside of a thinking-phase and trying to discover his talents. What was the outcome? He wasted lots of time. There is no good outcome from over-thinking. Just do it.
‘Discover’. Be curious, never stop asking questions about new things. Asking questions about something new helps you to try new things which could be in your talent ‘area’. A person who stagnate at only one place, can never find the riches of the whole world. So, discover something.
Good luck finding your Talent, if you still wondering about what your talent is. Nothing is impossible, just have faith in who you are.
