Finding your best talent requires some self-reflection and exploration. Here are some steps you can take to help you identify your talents:
○ Identify your passions: Think about the things that you enjoy doing and that come naturally to you. These may be things you do in your free time, hobbies, or interests you have pursued in the past.
○ Look for patterns: Look for patterns in your interests and activities to help identify common themes. For example, if you enjoy writing, you may also enjoy communicating with others in different ways, such as public speaking or podcasting.
○ Get feedback from others: Ask friends, family, or colleagues for their input on your strengths and talents. Sometimes others may see things in us that we are not aware of ourselves.
○ Try new things: Experiment with new activities or hobbies to see what you enjoy and what comes naturally to you.
○ Reflect on your accomplishments: Think about times when you have excelled in a particular task or activity. What skills or talents did you use to achieve that success?
Remember that discovering your talents is an ongoing process, and it may take time and effort to identify your true strengths. Be patient with yourself and keep an open mind as you explore new activities and experiences.
I once started an online course that was focused on starting my online business. But I had no idea how to start, where to start. This course indulged me to reach out to the closest people I knew, and ask the following questions:
If you were in danger, would you consider calling me for help? Why, and what reaction would you expect from me?
Can you tell me three qualities of me? And three things I hate?
Considering these three characteristics, what do you think I should focus on in my life?
By gathering these information from people who you are intimate with, you would have a picture of your boundaries, your qualities, your strengths, and your weaknesses. At least you'd have a draft of the surface of your characteristics.
That actually works. But don't fall into the mistake that what people think about you is what defines you. Instead, use it as a picture of yourself according to the ones who spend the most time with you.
I took a long time to explore myself, as my childhood was not as experimental as I wished. I always wanted to play an instrument, to learn how to play tennis, learn how to play chess, how to drive, and other particular things.
