How to discover your inner talents

I believe everyone has an innate ability – skills that they have innate ability, but "I'm not particularly talented in anything", a phrase that I often hear from my training job.

The statement appears to be from the view that the value of the mark is "talented", talent or ability must be both specific and approved by the public. So we freely consider LeBron James to be a talented basketball player or Meryl Streep talented actress. But we do not see our own behavior that reflects unique talents.

It is true that one dictionary definition of "talent" is the ability to perform skills better than most. But I think it's more likely that the most common comparison to judge talent is external – "How is my ability to compare XXX to everyone's suitability to make XXX?" – rather than internal one – "How is my ability to compare XXX with my ability to do YYY?"

It may look like a small team, but the conclusion is that many people ask themselves: "Do I have a talent?" rather than more constructive – and more specific – a question of, "What talent do I have?"

I believe that all have talent and I define them as what you do well and that you can do good because you have developed your natural skills that you were born with.

I believe that people find the greatest sense of success and satisfaction by using their natural abilities. Luckily, most people enjoy doing what we are talented with. We just need to discover what they are!

It's surprising that just because you prefer this activity and role, it does not mean you know them as talent. For a variety of reasons we are often ignorant of our talents, or we release them as "nothing special".

When we see what we're doing, it's easy for us, like "ordinary" or "something somebody can do" losing understanding of what makes us unique. Discovering our talent is an important key to opening the door to success.

Success is achieved when you know, demand and use your talents. By understanding and evaluating your abilities, you can find the environment as they are evaluated. And release behaviors and roles that do not come to the same level of joy and accomplishment.

Recognizing what you are particularly talented in doing is the first step to claim to yours. Taking another step means consciously finding new opportunities to use them.

Take the time to think about what you do as others compliment or ask you to help them – especially what you think is ridiculously easy and they think it's difficult.

Select one or two skills you've identified and think about using them now. When you're happy start increasing your chances. What are some new ways you can take advantage of this talent?

Make sure you're using your new-talent skills as often as possible next week. Once you have chosen a vote, select another from your list. Keep moving down the list until you have required all your skills!
