Use Your Natural Talents

Everyone is born with his or her own unique talent so don’t minimize your skills because you don’t think they’re as valuable as someone else’s. Rather than focusing on the talents of another, make good use of the talents already afforded you. You can always develop your natural talents into something greater through careful study and practice. If you have difficulty recognizing your talent, consider how others describe you. They often see what you overlook or fail to give yourself credit for. Once you understand what your natural talent is, you’ll come to realize how easy you were doing something that others struggle with.  As Mark Twain quoted: “We are always more anxious to be distinguished for a talent which we do not possess, than to be praised for the fifteen which we do possess”.
