Now it’s time to identify your talents and start using them – to give some meaning to your life doing what you are best in – with these seven simple and effective ways :

1-List Your Strengths and Weaknesses:

Do you really know, and I mean really know what are you good or bad at? I think the majority of us can’t tell what we are good or bad at because we simply don’t truly know it unless we think about it and try to write it down. And this is what you need to do moving forward.

Try to do this right after your Mindfulness time, Either by writing on a blank paper, or on your personal journal book, first thing in the morning or last thing before bed, and outline in your opinion your various strengths and weaknesses. what you find so easy to do perfectly without any effort, and what you can’t do it even above normally with a lot of effort. you may find yourself cooking the most difficult recipes with just one try, and learning a language rather quickly. On the other hand, you may be unsuccessful in scheduling some appointments for yourself or to anyone easily or reading body language.

Continuous discussion of a specific topic can serve as a key indicator in identifying talents. When someone can engage in prolonged conversations on a particular subject without causing boredom or disinterest in their peers, it might signify a strong affinity and talent for that particular area. For instance, if an individual can passionately talk at length about various aspects of people interaction, photography, sports or any other topic, it could suggest that they possess a talent or expertise related to that subject matter. This ability to sustain engaging discussions and demonstrate deep knowledge on a topic can be a clear signal of where their talents lie.

Some people might say that they don’t know how to tap into their talents, but with a little bit of patience, thought, and concentration, you can easily identify your gifts.

2-To identify your talents try to Step Outside of Your Comfort Zone:

I will tell you a standard fact that will never change through time: ” people never like and appreciate change”, We don’t like change. We usually resist it. No matter how our personal life or our work is feeling unpleasant and agony for us, we don’t appreciate it when our comfort zone gets disrupted. Suddenly at that moment, we get anxious, angry, and apprehensive. But how can we advance our lives if we stick to what we know rather than what we don’t know?
The answer? You can’t – which means you will be stuck in neutral, dissatisfied with life.

The ability to take risks by stepping outside your comfort zone is the primary way by which we grow. But we are often afraid to take that first step. because the truth is, comfort zones are not really about comfort, they are about fear.
Stepping outside of your comfort zone and resisting that fear is a necessity to identify your talents, and also if you are finding meaning, testing your strengths, or improving your abilities.

Of course, in reality, the process of moving from the comfort zone to a growth zone may not be linear. Peaks, troughs, and plateaus often complicate the journey. Sometimes, we even need to retreat to the comfort zone periodically before mustering the strength to leave again. Nevertheless, appreciating the steps can help in tolerating uncertainty. And as we say: “The best sailors, however, aren’t born in smooth waters.” so bit by bit you will be able to reach the growth zone.

Here are a few ideas to help you leave your comfort zone just a bit:

  • find out how you occupy your time when you’re not in the office and then prioritise.
  • make sure to apply mindfulness, self-discovery requires only ‘you time’.
  • Try -like we said earlier- to find your points of strength and try to improve them, like (poetry, music, or even managing others
  • try to enter and walk on undiscovered lands for you, something you never experienced or thought you will be good in it, you may find gems!!
  • Try to satisfy yourself a little bit by maybe enrollin in a class that teaches you a subject you’re interested in and never practiced.
  • As we say that giving, the key to success, fulfillment, and a life of prosperity; try to volunteer to help your community, meet new people and become passionate about something.

3-Take a Personality Test:

Because we sometimes feel like we’re not ourselves like we are some kind of a ghost of someone we don’t know, can you imagine that we can find and identify our talents?!!! I don’t think so. So, how exactly can you discover who you are?

personality test is a popular source for self-discovery. A simple Google search will yield dozens of free, accurate, and reliable personality tests that utilize a great number of measurements, theories, and algorithms. Some elementary questions that dive deep within your mind, a character quiz can assess your strengths, help you find hidden talent, and even employ a desire to improve yourself.

4. Ask your friends what your best and worst qualities are:

I suppose that everyone in the world has some trusted one, whether be a friend or even a relative, just ask them about the best and the worst qualities they see in you, and the great thing about asking a handful of trusted friends about this is that they all usually say the same thing. It’s illuminative to hear different people see you in the same aspect and this is definitely an indicator of talent.

Use your friends’ perspectives here to work on what you’d like to do better. On points of strength to swim with the current not against it, to take courses and improve yourself in that field, and slowly you will reveal those hidden talents.

5-Look for talent in others:

Sometimes being inspired by others’ talents makes us realize what we’re good at, too. if you see yourself as a designer of anything you like and saw some awesome designs that took your breath away, just try to define what exactly lit you up.

Conversely, if you see talent in others and feel jealous a little bit (absolutely normal by the way), use this in the right way like Asking this person to mentor you, for example, give you advice or simply chat over coffee. Reaching out and seeing talent in others will open up opportunities and connections while helping you define your own.

6-Remember what you have been thanked for:

When people thank us for something, they have been helped in some way. Notice what you are thanked for on a regular. Are you a good listener? A good teacher? A good motivator? All of these things are talents even though they seem small.

Also childhood activities can offer valuable insights into one’s talents by identifying recurring patterns or interests that may have started at an early age. Oftentimes, the activities that brought us joy or captivated our attention as children can provide clues about our innate abilities and skills.
For instance, a child who enjoyed organizing their toys or keeping their room tidy may later exhibit strong organizational skills in their adulthood. By reflecting on our favorite childhood activities or seeking input from family members about them, we can uncover potential talents or strengths that have been present throughout our lives. These early indicators may help us recognize and nurture our abilities, guiding us towards fulfilling paths in our work or daily life.

remember that if you are trying to identify your hidden talents, then you are searching for some hidden talents that you don’t feel yet, it is real and exists in you, but need some effort and patience to reveal them, so whatever you are thanked for is a small thing, you can know it and make it a big talent.

7-To identify your talents just try to Be open to change:

Being open to change means letting go of preconceived notions and honestly absorbing the world around you. This kind of openness will lead you to discover new talents and help prepare you to tackle any challenge life throws your way, because as you know that as we age, our tastes change and our strengths grow, so don’t imprison yourself on some old thoughts that might be now changed in your mind, and that you are now ready to try it and even be the best in it.

It’s totally up to you to identify your talents, and to change your life.
It’s totally up to you for inding your neglected talents that have been hidden all your life under tons
of unpleasant work, unstopped bills, and maybe the life you dislike.
your role now is to let that fear of the unknown, leave your comfort zone, and just embrace the new you, you that you want not the other, I know it will be difficult and painful, but we really live only one life, and you know it’s too short to waste the rest of it hesitating or afraid of change.

Finally just keep in mind very important fact, success is a multifaceted concept that involves various factors beyond just talent. While talent, defined as a natural aptitude for something, certainly plays a significant role, it is not the sole determinant of success. Effort, often described as the degree of activity invested in achieving goals, is another crucial element. Without consistent effort, even the most talented individuals may not reach their full potential or achieve success.

Moreover, having a clear understanding of one’s goals and the unwavering desire to accomplish them, known as ambition, are essential components of success. Without ambition, one’s talents may remain untapped or underutilized. It is the combination of talent, effort, and ambition that truly paves the way for success to flourish. Each of these elements complements and enhances the others, leading to the realization of one’s full potential and the achievement of desired goals. In conclusion, while talent is undoubtedly important, success is a holistic result of talent, effort, and ambition working together harmoniously.
