What is talent
Talent is a natural endowment possessed by everyone on earth. It is a great investment on each and every person by their Maker which must be utilized to the fullest for the betterment of all mankind. Often times, talent is usually associated with that exceptional quality of doing a particular thing in a more refined and efficient way that makes people amazed and keeps them dumbfounded. As Erma Bombeck said "When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say,'l used everything you gave me''. That quote has taught us that talent is meant to be used and not to be pocketed.
How to unlock one's talent
“ A great deal of talent is lost to the world for want of a little courage. Every day send to the graves obscure men whose timidity prevented them from making a first attempt.”
• Sydney Smith
Since there are so many things that people can embark on, how will a person be able to uncover her talent? From the quote above, we are made to understand that the first and the most significant step to uncovering one’s talent is by possessing a courageous spirit to try anything and everything until you get it right. Courage is a powerful tool that makes talent possessors uncover the talents they possess. How do we become courageous? It is by learning to try even when it seems as though we will fail or we are failing already.
Another important step to uncovering one’s talent is by being consistent in what we do even when faced with discouraging remarks. Often times, a person who has discovered his talent newly may be cajoled to dropping it due to people’s derogatory remarks. My advice is, don’t listen to what they say if you know you have uncovered your talent, be consistent in practicing it so that your talent can transform you from a mere possessor to a great genius.
What Next after uncovering this talent
If you have successfully uncovered your talent you may ask what should I do next. This is the main essence of this post. If you’ve got it, flaunt it. Go all out and show to the world what you are. Talent is meant to be used and not hidden. So show it to the world. You can use your talent to achieve the following
• You can monetize your talent. This is what talented footballers like Christiano Ronaldo, Lionnel Messi and other talented footballers are doing.
• You can change others using your talent. You will become a model to so many people thereby changing their lives and making them dream big
• Your talent will benefit other people. Not just your family and relatives but others can benefit from your accomplishments through your talent.
So what are you waiting for. Do you have talent? Don’t hide it, go out there and flaunt it for the world to see how different you are.
