My Talents

Before I’m going to make you happy (or I might just make your day) with my talents, let’s briefly go into the definitions of talent and let’s discover what kind of talents others have. Keep in mind:

Everyone’s got a talent or probably several of them. Unfortunately, not everyone’s aware of it or must even hide it from others such as family, society etc.

Some might not have the chance to live out their talents as their making of a living keeps them quite busy – and the professional life only in best cases matches one’s true talents (or vice versa).

Everyone’s talents are unique. Let your strengths speak for you. Show what is inside you. But in general: What’s talent all about?
