I go to a church where the pastor is a well known author, speaker and artist. Listening to him speak and draw is downright depressing for me because I keep on telling myself; “It is not fair, how can one man be so talented!”
Have you noticed that many people who are in the limelight seem so multi talented and innovative. Look at TD Jakes, Oprah, Clint Eastwood, and even Tupac (the guy is still releasing CD’s years after his death!) So what makes these people able to do so much?
If you actively use what you are good at, you will eventually develop other talents. It sounds simple but it is so true, I call it the Matt 25 rule. Some of you are thinking. “I am without any talent. I don’t even have a single passion or for that matter a talent.” Lucky for you I have three suggestions which will help you on your way to finding your passion
Your Innner Child
This does not mean that you are pregnant. This only means that most children seem so full of talent and potential. You were no exception. What were you good at doing when you were young? What did you wanna be when you grew up. Grab a paper and a pen, and jolt them down! You may be surprised by the countless dreams that have fallen by the wayside.
Ask your friends, family, kids, dogs, fish and just about everyone you know what they think you are good at. But be careful not everyone thinks that you are good for something.
Take that step of faith and grab an instrument, start a blog, write that story, sing that song, start that business, change your career…. just do something! If it doesn’t work, try something else.
So there you have it! 3 steps to lead you in the right direction.
