Everyone has Talent but not Everyone use it

In this world, people belong to three categories:

  1. Who has talent – (Everyone has)
  2. Who knows they have talent. – (Some of us knows)
  3. Who actually use their talent – (Only a few qualify here)

When we are young and finishing our education, we knows what makes us alive. We believe in our dreams. We know our specialities. Often we forget our talent when we choose our profession based merely on our educational qualification and certificate. We neglect our interest and specialization and our talent start vanishing.

“Talent is never static. It’s always growing or dying.” ~ Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly

Have you ever asked yourself, what is your talent? Do you doubt if you have any? Which category you fall into? Let us discover.

Everyone has Talent:

Everyone is born with potential to do extraordinary in life. Unfortunately, we settled ordinary. When someone asks what our talent is, we think for a while and say that we do not have any talent.

“Everybody has talent, it’s just a matter of moving around until you’ve discovered what it is.” ~ George Lucas

In most cases, we have never tried to explore our talent. Everyone is unique in one way or other. Even if you examine a person with disabilities, you will find something special within him. Therefore, Never ever, doubt your existence in this world.

“We are not in a position in which we have nothing to work with. We already have capacities, talents, direction, missions, callings.” ~ Abraham H. Maslow

Sometimes we simply forget it. Do you remember when you buy some festival stuff to decorate your home? You use it for a few days and then keep it in store to use it later. Many years later when you are cleaning your home, you eventually find your stuff. Then you realize that you almost forget it.

If you do not use things for a while, you certainly forget about them. The same happen with talent. Do you forget something that was your speciality once? Let us see how to find the gift that nature given us.

Identify your Talent:

As Buddha said, “Everyone is gifted here, but some of us never opened their package”. Have you opened your package?

Where can you find your talent? You can find it in your hobbies. You may be born with some natural gift. You can find your talent in your skills acquired during education. It may be in the form of writing, speaking, programming, designing, painting, singing, or managing employees or customer. It may be decorating home or cooking. It could be anything.

Sometimes we simply ignore our talent because it seems an ordinary thing to us. For an example as a homemaker, you prepare food for your family. You know that you cook well and you like it doing. Therefore, you might be asking yourself, “How can it be a talent? This is my regular work and every homemaker like me is doing it.”

There should be no question to talent as big, small or ordinary talent. A talent is a talent. If anyone asks you, what your talent is? Say it proudly that, “I can cook well”. If you appreciate your talent, you give it a new direction to evolve. You never know where it may take you in your life.

“With ordinary talents and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable.” ~ Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton

If you have finished your education and do not yet know your talent, you are getting too late. If you are doing business or pursing job and do not know your talent, you are fooling yourself. One third of your life already passed and you do not know what you really want to do in this world?

Do not wait too long. Trust your instinct and follow your heart. Identify once and trust on it. You can always sharp your talent by learning required skills later.

Use your talent:

It is Showtime now; use your talent. Once you identify your calling of heart, do not sit idle. Do not hold your talent waiting for the perfect time or more opportunities. As Ivan Panin said, “Not he deserves praise that has talents, but he that uses them.”

Talent will not work, if you do not. It will not inspire you if you do not take any action about it. The joy is not in dreaming about your talent, but in using that talent. Use your talent. Take the first step and explore the dimensions.

“Everyone has talent. Little know it and a few use it. That is where greatness differs.” ~ Deepak Rajpal

    I read your web site and I know that God has not given me any talent what so ever and most people I knew in the church of christ had no talent and they were all quite average. I am very average.
    most people have no talent and are good at nothing

    • First of all thanks for providing your opinion here 🙂 I believe even if you are average, you can develop some skills. What it takes is awareness about the things that you can excel. Be passionate about anything and you can do miracle in that. All the best!!

        Finding your talent begins by looking at yourself….see what it is you that you find yourself doing most of the time. What is it that you enjoy doing? It is a scientific fact that if you enjoy an activity you will perform best in that activity! Everyone has are born for GREATNESS…the talent blockage begins as a young child– we begin living our lives… then we are programmed by our support system/society what life is supposed to be. That is where we loss our individualism- henceforth our talents become a faint memory.

    I’ve thought of everything I could possibly think of. I’m an average in writing and speaking . I get extremely nervous when I’m faced with a crowd. I don’t even get offers to model. I can’t sing. I’m in my final year studying English. I’m just really frustrated with my life. I can’t think of one career or job that will accept me. The only think I’m sure of with myself is the fact that I don’t like being in one place for long. Please I really really need your advice, Deepak.

    What if you are not good at anything and know for a fact you do not possess a talent or gift. Some people feel they are not smart enough to find a skill and excel on it. So I feel that everyone has a talent or possess that special thing except for me.

    • Montana Austin says:

      smart has nothing to do with talent….begin intellectual has to do with the programs, experiences and memories of others which we accumulate along life’s path. Talent is a individual trait which has nothing to do with education and levels of smartness. My question WHO are you measuring yourself with? and what makes that person so much greater than yourself…this is a wrong turn.. lets talk!
