Use Your Natural Talents

Everyone is born with his or her unique talents. Don’t minimize your skills because you don’t think your talent measures up to someone else’s. Rather than focusing on the talents of another, make use of the talents already afforded you.

If you have difficulty recognizing your strengths, consider how others describe you. They often see what you overlook or fail to give yourself credit.

Once you understand your talents, you’ll come to realize how easy you were doing something that others find a struggle.

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.”
