Articles -- Your special gift
Every one of us has a special gift, and a drive to give that gift to the world. It may take a while to figure out what that gift is, but it is worth the effort because you will never feel truly happy or fulfilled until you are expressing your own special talent.
Chopin was aware of his gift at an early age, but this is rare. For most of us, it’s a lifelong quest. You may ask, “Am I a composer, a designer, a technical person?” But thinking about job titles may not be the best approach.
You may have difficulty figuring out what your gift is because it’s so simple. For example, your gift might be the ability to empathize with others, or the ability to organize things or to stay cheerful in challenging times. These are powerful gifts that can be useful in many different contexts at work and at home.
In fact, you probably have a combination of gifts and so the challenge is to discover your many gifts and then to figure out what jobs, hobbies and social settings will allow you to express these gifts as fully as possible. This process is best seen as an evolution. Let go of the idea of reaching an ultimate state. Start to express your talents in stages, gradually moving towards a more and more fulfilling life.
So what will you do today to find and express your own special talents?
