Talents and Skills

You can easily go through life without realizing that you have certain talents or skills waiting to be uncovered. Whether it was other priorities getting in the way or not having enough time, these skills remained dormant.  That alone is a very good reason to do something about it later in life when you do have the time.

Another and perhaps stronger reason is to show yourself just what you can do. That you can push out your personal achievement boundaries, become a more accomplished individual and enjoy new successes. Doing this can be such a powerful experience at a time of life when you perhaps regret not pushing yourself more in the past or simply relish the idea of new challenges.

What are my dormant talents and skills? Why could finding one change my life? How should I nurture and develop my talent?
