We all have unique talents. You might be good at writing, painting, communicating, math, organizing, building relationships, managing others, money, investing or athletics. Each of us has some genetically, god-given talent that is unique only to us.
Innate talents are skills that come easy to you. Where others are forced to toil for 7, 8 or 9 long, hard years to get good a something, such as playing the piano, you’re somehow able to master the piano in just a few short, painless years. Well, that’s an innate talent. That’s life’s way of telling you – play the piano for a living. If you focus all of your efforts on those things that you’re naturally good at in life, you’ll realize enormous success in life. Life rewards those who use their talents and their strengths.
But it’s not enough to find your talent. A talent must be put to use every day. You have to hone your talent, as if it were a little child. You need to nurture it and help it grow into an expertise. If you focus all of your efforts on those things that you’re naturally good at in life, you’ll realize enormous success in life. Life rewards those who use their talents and their strengths.
Habit is the repetition of thinking and behavior. Through repetition, any activity will eventually become a habit. As you engage in that habitual activity every day, you become better and better at it. Practice makes perfect, as they say. So, too with talents. If you can turn your talent into a habit and practice it every day, eventually you will become so expert at it that it becomes automatic. No thinking will be required.
This is why habits are so important. Habits transform innate talents into flawless perfection. When you reach the point where your talent becomes a habit, that is when you become an expert. The world pays a premium for experts. Experts make the most money and build the most wealth. So, find your inner talents, convert them into habits and, in time, you will become an expert who can command a premium for your expertise.
