Everyone has been endowed with some sort of talent or another. Some are visual, others are not. Not all talents though are easy to be found in one's soul. They must be looked for and to do that means one must be willing to try something new, something different and something unique. They must keep trying until they find the talent that clicks and then continue to practice, nurture it and cultivate, until that talent becomes a skill.
To often people excuse themselves from finding talents, with the lie that they just have none. There is no drive there, no motivation to try something different and it's a lie that can really deflate the moral of a person's spirit.
So that is the challenge. To stop making excuses and start experimenting. Try something different, something unusual. The age-old adage of "you don't know if you like it, til you try it." is true. You will never know what your talents are, until you get out there and try and then try again.
Every artist, musician, cook, dancer, singer, writer, jump-roper, crafter, etc... started by trying something new one day, and then doing again and then again and then finally again. Finally finding something they truly enjoy and that they were good at. Yet it came down to trying.
So before you complain or compare, take a moment and get up and go try something new. Build a model, give a talk, learn to can fruit, or even just learn to be a good listener and you might find some of the unique and incredible talents that are locked deep down inside you. Then when you find them keep practicing, keep exploring and keep enjoying where those gifts can take you.
Yet it all comes down to one thing....
and that is you and you alone...
