DAY 10: Change The Old Mentality; How To Discover Your Talents

“We are all gifted, God has given you that natural thing call talents, discover it.” – Saminu Abass Ola

I am a bit weak thinking there won’t be any piece for today. Quickly I realized today marks the double-figure digit for the series. It means the challenge of 30 days has reached its one-third already. Therefore, I need to double up and say no to missing a day.

After discussing the decaying system of the educational sector, I urged our youths to discover themselves. Funny reactions welcomed the DAY 9 write-up. Some people said they have no talents, some even said they don’t believe God has given them something natural or anything they could see as supernatural in them.

I will define talent as what you can do naturally. Let me put it this way, something people could see as a hard thing and you easily do without stress. Talent is that ability you are born with. However, you should know that talent without hardworking is a waste. Despite being talented you still have to work very hard if you want to be a specialist.

No much words tonight, I will list some things I could see as talents. Study the lists, identify the ones you can easily do without stress. Talent as a natural endowment may be easier to discover, however, some people can’t still discover themselves.
