If you tell me you don't have a talent, I have to say I don't believe you. Everyone Has an Identifiable Talent. Your personality, skills, and uniqueness contribute to that talent. Maybe you don't know what it is, which could be a true statement, but I know you have talent.
How do I know?
I know because every soul who comes into existence as a human, has a gift wired explicitly for their success. It is part of the makeup of the soul. It is an agreement it has with the human self.
Are you human? Do you have a soul?
Well, then, I think we have it covered. I know it, now maybe you could discover it.
But, Vicki, how do I do that?
Glad you asked. First, you remove that whine that I heard when you said that. It’s not going to be that hard. I promise.
Next, you start with a few of these steps:
Name a few supportive qualities that you possess. (or positive if you like that word. I’m not a battery with positive and negative ends, so I use supportive.)
What words would someone who loves you use to describe you?
What are you passionate about? How about lukewarm? Give me something here.
What helps you feel alive and for time to fly by? What interests you about it?
If we used the word unique in a supportive way, what would the characteristic be that you said is unique about you?
Then, you begin to act on it by:
Researching how you could learn more about what is innately within you.
You could spend some time with a journal to ask yourself what it would look like if you fully embraced your own uniqueness. (YOU)
You sign up for coaching with me, and I can help you discover it. (Shameless plug, but I am running a business here!)
You pay attention to the limiting beliefs that show up and decide they are no longer beneficial to you and learn to release them.
You dig those paints out of the closet and begin working on a project.
You connect with the part of you that is tired of hiding.
You celebrate being you, and that is good for today.
Listen, you are the only one who can be you. I can help you be more of you, but I can't do it for you. And neither can anyone else. The world needs your brilliance. You need your brilliance. You don't have to share it with the world, but you must acknowledge it. That's some of the sadness that lives in there. Imagine being a soul and having this beautiful human not acknowledge your existence or brilliance. You wouldn't do that with a friend; why do you do it with your soul?
Hard truth? Sure, but you were ready for it. I know you were. If you'd like more help with this subject, head on over and listen to this week's podcast. Or schedule a session. Up to you. Maybe do both!
