Calling Out Your Natural Talents to Make Life More Fulfilling

Every one of us is born with a unique set of talents. They are natural, God-given abilities that come so easily that we often overlook as ‘special’. Our talents are the core of who we are - that never-changing part of ourselves that endures despite the tumultuous nature of the world we live in.

As we go through life, we have a choice concerning our talents; and it’s a pretty big one! We can choose to struggle through life attempting to thrive in activities that really don’t align with our talents. In other words, we can ignore our talents in favour of focusing our effort on overcoming our weaknesses. Most people believe that their greatest improvements in life will come from overcoming their weaknesses. Do you believe this? On the other hand, we can choose to be in that growing camp of people who know otherwise, those people who have chosen to honour their talents and make sure that they are making the most of them in all they do. These are the people that know that leaning into their talents rather than focusing on weaknesses turns out to be a much better use of time in the quest for happiness and fulfilment.

Of course, to use our talents first suggests that we must know what they are. Only in this way can we leverage them. So, do you know what your talents are? Do you even know how to recognize them operating in your daily life? If the answer to either of these questions is, no, this teleseminar will show you how to learn the language of your talents.
