What are your Talents?


 

 

 

 

 

What are your Talents?

Everyone is born with talents. It may be that you are a great talker. You might be a great fisherman. You may be someone who can write with effortless ease. Whatever your talent, my question is:

Are you using the natural talents you were born with?
Are you going through your whole life putting off that book that you know you could write? Or what about that picture that you know you could paint? At the end of your life, your natural talent will be no more. If unused, consider how sad it would be. Imagine giving a really beautiful present to someone.

You have taken great care to give them that something special, a once-off item. You gift wrap it. You put on those nice ribbons and bows on that special present. And then, when you give that present with all your heart, it is tossed in a dark corner and never opened.

Not using your natural talents is like leaving a beautiful present unwrapped.

It might be that you are a great photographer. Imagine if you focused on creating great photos. They exist forever. They could be timeless. They could form part of history.

Have you ever been in the company of someone who plays a musical instrument and makes it sing and dance? Are you one of those people who constantly hear others say “I would love to be able to do that”? They are talking about you!

Your natural talent is a gift

It has been bestowed on you and you alone. Don’t waste that precious gift. You were born to shine. Find that gift inside you, share it, and be who you were truly meant to be.

Values Do You Know What Yours Are?


 

 

 

 

 


Values, what are they?

Values are the things that are really important to you; whether personally or in business. By identifying your values you are saying this is the code I am living by. The following are examples of some values for you to reflect on:

Respect
Integrity
Love
Family
Friendship
Money
Fun

How are your values reflected in your roles in life?
Let’s say the list above is a list of your life values. Based on this, here are a few questions:

How do you show respect to those who are important to you?
When is your integrity evident?
When do you show love – even to yourself?
Where does your family come in the scheme of things?
What does friendship mean to you?
Do you spend money wisely?
How much fun do you have in life?
What is the one thing you can do that will guarantee you burst out laughing?

Having real values will help you.

You will look more organically at what is important to you. Remember, we all have different values. The above lists are just to get your creative juices flowing. Find your own values, listen to your heart.  Then, experience a life that is based on what is truly important to you in business or life – or both.

Start now:

List your top 5 values (personal/business) – make your own list.
If you are in conflict about any issues, look to your values for guidance. Watch how things change.

If you live by your values, it’s like having your own internal sat nav. You may occasionally take the wrong turn but in reality you are going in the right direction.
