Often we hear the word thrown around as if it is easy to determine who has talent, and who does not.
It does appear, however. that the definition of talent depends upon the judgement of the observer.
I believe that everyone has talent, and is capable of doing (and doing well) anything they desire. Of course, many will point out that statement is simply not true. Truth is, however, also in the eye of the observer.
If someone has great desire, is willing to do what is needed to follow a dream, and believes 100% in themselves, I am convinced they can achieve anything.
Rare is the person to seems to be incredibly talented at everything they attempt. All of us really do have at least one observable talent. One? Only one?
Could we have more? I believe so. Perhaps though, we have found only one thing that really appeals, that gives us tremendous satisfaction, and that keeps inspiring us. That becomes our talent.
Talent is born – but it is born within each of us. We respond to comments of others at a very early age. A friend or a relative remarks upon our infant scribbles as talented. We believe and pursue art as our life’s joy. Perhaps a childish essay is hailed as the beginnings of a prodigy, so we become a writer.
Who knows what will trigger within us the desire to pursue some career or pursuit.
Once our belief is firmly entrenched we will definitely be hailed as talented.
