The twin of Passion is your Talent. While your Passions energize you and others, your Talents guide you to make the best use of your time.
Discovering and using your talents is the second aspect of the relationship between You and You and allows you to find the path of least resistance to expressing your talent and experience your natural flow.
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
Talent is what comes naturally to you and is easy to do without having to think about it. You often do it quickly and without effort.
It may be that it comes so easily to you that you don’t even notice it or you think of it as nothing special.
Talent is your gift to others. Like a precious diamond in its natural state, we often see our talent as rough or ordinary, whilst others recognize its inherent brilliance and know our talent is invaluable.
Paradoxically, what may seem like nothing to you may be everything to someone else. Actually, a “talent” was originally a unit of money, something valuable that could be exchanged and traded. Equally today, everyone has some talent that can be used as a currency of exchange.
