It’s been said over and over again whatever you put your focus on will grow. I’ve noticed that our society focuses more on strengthening our weakness versus our strengths, especially our school system. I remember struggling with math and having to endure multiple tutors (so painful). For what?! Until now, I’ve yet to discover the use of geometry or algebra.
When we focus on our weakness versus our strengths, it prolongs the ability to master our true gifts and talents. The main drawback of putting all our energy and focus on what we’re not good at is the loss of confidence we feel. We start to develop all these negative beliefs, such as…I’m not good enough, I’m not smart enough and, everyone is better than me. If more people realized this, there would be less use of Prozac. One of my favorite quotes is by Albert Einstein…
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, It will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
I don’t know about you, but I have yet to see a fish climb a tree. So why do we torture ourselves? What I know for sure is the activities we are good at are most often the activities we most enjoy. We should be pursuing what we love. It’s a huge big neon light pointing to what we were born to do.
A clue to our purpose in life.
But what if you don’t know what you’d really love to do or what you’re good at? If this is your case, then this “How to find your true strengths and talents” episode on Mabelonthereel will provide you with the same strategies that helped me find my strengths.
All of us were born with gifts and talents, including you. The fact is, no one taught us how to find them. We all have our strengths and we all have our weakness. It’s part of the ying and yang of the universe. I choose to focus on what I’m good at and because I do, my life changes for the better. I want you to remember this,
Now, it’s your turn to share. I want to know how have you discovered your strengths and talents. Are they congruent with what you actually enjoy doing? Please join the conversation and share your thoughts in the comments below. Thank you so much for hanging out and for sharing your journey with me.
