Why you can’t find your talent and how you can41 comments
Find your talent!
Here’s the thing. We all think that we are not good enough.
All of us.
Why is that?
Because there are big, huge expectations in our culture to be better-than-best, and perfect, and beautiful ,and thin and successful, and, and, and…
It is as if we are not the Olympic athlete at you-name-it, then we are not good enough. It’s either THE best or failure. Anyone hear me?
These crazy expectations blind us back from the wonder and joy of developing the person that we want to be in the world. They have you so full of self doubt that you think you can’t find your talent!
These expectations discredit your talents and skills so you think you don’t have any.
We don’t have to be the best. There are way too many people on earth for this to even make sense.
We just have to be allowed.
The more you say, “I am not good at anything.” The more you will believe that this is the unwavering truth about you (even though it is the biggest crock of doo-doo ever).
If you think that you are not good at anything, how can you find your talent?
Everyone is good at something!
Time to take the blinders off. And see what you are good at.
It is only when we crawl away from being under the weight of self judgment, that we can impact the world in the way we are meant to.
Remember: Small ways are just as important as big ways!
Many of you know that I have been attempting to write and record videos for a few years, but have been hiding behind my own fear that I am not talented enough yet for this format.
Confident in my question-answering-ability, since this is my forte during workshops and in counseling sessions, I wanted to take this skill to a wider audience. I’ve been literally working on this for two years and am finally just allowing myself to do it at the level I am.
It is only when I let go of this, I was able to really practice in a way that helped me improve.
Hope you like it. 😉
In today’s episode, I tackle a reader’s question about how to find his talent, sent in to me by Jude.
I am indeed privileged to be in your mailing list. Thank you.
Do me a favour…how can I find and know my talent?
This one is for you Jude.

So what did you think?
Here’s what I want you to think about right now:
Think about a talent you have that you didn’t know you had until someone pointed it out to you.
Please share it in the comment sections below because I want to know about it. The more you shout your talents out to the world, the more you will take them into your own heart.
And as always, your stories are sure to inspire others.
What is a talent that you didn’t know you had until someone pointed it out to you?
