Multiplying Your Talents …
Yesterday we talked about the difference between talents and skills.
We said that getting clear about your talents, strengths, and gifts, will lead you to your purpose.
Well maybe that got you thinking … how will I know if I’m getting close to my purpose?
Here’s how you know you’re getting close …
Answer this question: “Is my purpose about serving me, or is it about serving others?”
You see when you utilize your strengths and talents to serve others you accomplish 2 things:
- You have a greater sense of fulfillment and joy in your life.
- You will be multiplying your talents by inspiring others to work and live from theirs!
Marianne Williamson in her famous “Words To Live By” says it so eloquently …
“There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine as children do.
And as we let our own light (talents) shine we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.”
Think about that … living and working from your talents actually inspire others to live from theirs.
And THAT my friends … is a powerful multiplier of your talents.
I think this may be the first time I can truthfully say that I like math!
