Everyone from this planet have some sort of talent in them, where some might even have multiple talents. I know that people appreciate you when you are talented and when the talent is useful. But, do every talent needs to be appreciated? Everyone have their own opinion, so here I would like to share mine.
Now few might be thinking that how to make talent useful, let’s first talk about it; in the previous paragraph, I said that ‘people appreciate you when you are talented and when the talent is useful,’ let me clarify it, actually it depends on the person, like how he makes use of it, the person just need to find the best way to make use of his talent.
Whenever we hear the word “Talent”, the very first thing that comes to our mind is a person doing some unique stuff only few people are expert in, or maybe it’s only him. But, even if there are many, they will all present it in a different way. Let’s take ‘painting’ for an example; the number of people having this talent is high when compared to the other talents. But, many of them paints differently, it may be different in content, topic, color, painting equipment, style of painting etc.
Now, let’s talk about the people to whom you present it, what do they think and say? There is no guarantee that every single person will get impressed by seeing your talent, or every second person in the room, it depends on how expert you are in it or how different and unique is it from others.
Are Talent and skill the same?!
Every singal person on Earth have some sort of Talent, the only thing is to find what the Talent is! Skills are mostly acquired by hard work, but when we talk about talent, it gets mixed up with hard work then it could become an excellent package with enormous possibilities of becoming a successful person.
Can we master other’s talent?
Nothing is impossible. Can we really master other’s talent! Think about it, let’s make it easier, suppose a person have a talent of doing multiple things at a time using both of his hands which makes him easier to finish his works quicker and faster than others. Isn’t it beneficial to have such type of talent, suppose your boss gave you a lot of work and at the same time you have to attend your sister’s wedding and you don’t have any other choices, what would you do? You just have two choices, either to sit in the office and do the work or attend the wedding, you are stuck, now, you must be wishing of having the talent of doing multiple things at a time using both the hands so that you could hurry the work and then attended the wedding, this is a hypothetical situation, but making the talent useful in non-Hypothetical situation is upon you.
When you are mastering someone’s talent it is no more a talent, it is a skill which you have developed inside you by working on it, and developing a skill is not that easy, you need to work on it, work hard and in the end you will achieve the results of your hard work which would make all your works easy.
How to develop the skill in you?
Turning somebody else’s talent into your skill, you need to work really hard, but working hard isn’t enough, you need to work wise. How could you work wise? What are the things you need to do for that?
At first, Stay calm and think deeply about it, prepare yourself, it might take time to create the skill and mastering it, to do that you need to have patience and If u don’t have patience then make yourself for that first as it will be useful for you in many other things too. Without patience you can’t get success.
Since you have prepared yourself for the Mission, the next thing is you need to have a proper planning of how to learn and master the skill. Make a plan, without planning you can’t start it. Now the last and most important thing you need to have is the focus, without focus you will never pass the mission, if you don’t have the focusing ability then develop it, not only it will be helpful for you in this mission, but it will also be helpful in all of your missions to pass them successfully with better ease.
“WORK HARDER AND HARDER AND NEVER GIVE UP. KEEP TRYING AGAIN AND AGAIN NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU FAIL. A DAY WILL COME WHEN YOU WILL PASS THEM ALL, AND ON THAT DAY YOU WILL BE PROUD OF YOURSELF!“
