Am I Talented?

Yes, you are.

But the question is, are you dedicated enough? Especially, to the vocation you have chosen to shine in. We wouldn’t have been blessed with a legendary Harry Potter series or the gorgeous electric cars, if their creators had spent their lives in chasing someone else’s dream. Or, weren’t persistent with their vision.

Believe me, it’s not out of the blue that a person comes and blows everyone away of their feet. It’s not a fluke. It’s rather searching for your gifts, persisting with your chosen/discovered/invented vocation, and spending days and nights with your beloved vision so that it starts running in your veins. With dedication and perseverance, you will start building your talents, and eventually they will manifest as the most precious arrows in your skills’ quiver. Indeed, it’s not an overnight glory although it may seems so.

So, the next time the question hovers in your head, just change it to, “AM I Dedicated enough?” and if the answer is no, you know what you have to do…

P.s: A cheat code when such questions disturb you: rephrase it in a question whose answer urges you to be the creator of your life and not just a mere victim of it. And life will change. 🙂
