How To Know Your Talents

‘’MONEY IS GRACE’’ -  Ubong Edem

We’ve already known that when a seed of hope is planted in the womb of purpose, a destiny child is born.

             The question of how to know one’s talent has been in existence and has raised so many interests as many people under-utilized their talents simply because they were not in the field where they are naturally talented. The were always under force in doing things, they never got to do what they enjoyed doing, as such, they couldn’t perform more.
When you are in the field that you have natural strength, you’ll find the grace to get in front. As a front-runner, you’ll get noticed by all, your voice becomes heard and you become an authority to others.

If nobody has ever asked you this question, let me ask you today...   ‘’what is your talent or what are you talented at?’’
           The question above is what all the top people have answered over-and-over again, you must answer that to yourself, if you want to be highly respected, trusted by others and above all, become an authority. Let me tell you today, your talent should have to do with what you love doing, when doing such a thing, your earlier thoughts are forgotten. You simply forget about yourself.  This is where you fine the passion of doing. It is not like anything else, it is what you do to correct all wrongs to right.
         Actually, some people claim not to know these things in their lives. If you are such a person, let me take to a mirror, where you see who you really are.

        Firstly, if you can’t figure out your talent, permit me to drive your mind back to the past lane (your childhood).
 Answer the following questions;
                             What did you dream of doing?
Who or what type of person did you dream of being or being like?
The good news is that those dreams did not die, but, may have been buried under the ground, thereby making no sense, creating no result, generating nothing, benefiting nobody. Today, I want you to go back to where you buried your dream and fetch it out. Do you remember the parable of the talents giver in the ‘’HOLY BIBLE’’? If you do, remember that the person that one(1) talent was given was even collected and given to the one that had five(5) before, who traded to gain another 5, thereby, having eleven(11) simply because he buried it in the ground, later telling the master that the master wants to reap from where he didn’t sow. Count yourself lucky today as a person who has the privilege of reading this message. Perhaps, many talents have been taken away because the bearers decided not to make use of the talent. Today, I want you to go back to where you buried your talent and resurrect it. This is the reason why people keep calling me the ‘’Young Investor’’, because I’m one of the people who study things down to the root so as to know more how to utilize my talents to the fullest.

          Secondly, if you can’t still figure out where your natural strengths (talents) are, then the next thing that I should tell you to do is to ask your true friends and family members. These people have been around you enough to be able to capture what you are really capable of doing. They should know what you are good at. One of the problems a lot of people have in identifying their talents is that they come naturally to them, and as such, they don’t see them as talents. They don’t know that those things that they find easy doing are giving other people sleepless nights, you may not have noticed, but your true friend and family members will be there to tell you those things. It is just like every time I walk with my Mom, people always stand back and be starring at her as if as someone who is alienated to earth or a celebrity, but, I noticed that all those things happened as a result of her beauty. But, to my surprise, even when some of those people tell her face-to-face, these words, ‘’you are beautiful’’, she will always turn around and ask me, ‘’am I beautiful?’’, then I always laugh. This is the same thing that happens to me, every time I log into my facebook account, I receive messages from people all over the world, calling me ‘’Young Investor, handsome guy, fine boy, etc’’, but I don’t just believe that. But, I’ll believe that if after you might have read this message, I get a respond from you. The thing is as I always say ‘’Money is Grace’’- Ubong Edem (Young Investor). You may not have cherished what you have until your friends commend you for them. Until your friends openly tell you that they’ve been trying to do that same thing that you find very easy and natural in doing without them being able to do. But, I want you to know the kind of friends that you have because some friends do not motivate, they demotivate. They only see the negative side of you, not your capabilities. Wrong friends only see impossibilities in you. This write-up is not intended to showing you how to know your friends, but, how important your friends and family members are, in making you get to your right talent grounds. If you have ever been misguided by wrong friends, I want you to get back to where he/she made you to bury you talent today and resurrect it.

          Sincerely, I want you to go back today and model your life after your great dreams, start building both horizontal and vertical relationship with great people, start to ask your good friends some important questions like, what do you think I can do successfully, let your parents tell say great things about you. Perhaps, mothers should know what their children will become in life, right from time because they are the first to hear you scream and they watched you playing with metal, showing that you’ll be an Engineer, they saw some people flying papers, meaning that the child may be a pilot, some children use to sing, indicating that the child will be good music area (musician), etc. You must start looking for these things if you want the sky, not only to be your limits, but your starting point. 

          I want to believe that the topic has been of help. I will see you at the top as it is the only place that is best for you!

Money is Grace!
