Go With The Flow – The Challenge (Wk 17)

I love to watch people who are “NaTuRaLs”.  Whether it be in music, theatre, business, communication, athletics, etc, I find that these people are mesmerizing because they are so good at what they do.  They make it look EffOrtLess and in a way it is, because their gift just naturally flows out of them.  It’s as singer and actress Pearl Bailey observed when she said,

“There are two kinds of talent, man-made talent and God-given talent. With man-made talent you have to work very hard. With God-given talent, you just ToUch iT Up once in a while.”

I’m not saying you don’t have to work hard to achieve your dreams, because from my experience, hard work has always been a requirement, but I do believe that you will have to work a whole lot harder if your talent is a man-made one.

One way to find your “SwEeT sPoT” is to find out what you’re God-given talent is.  This may take some time and definitely some experimenting but it’s well worth it.

How do find what you’re good at?  Take a look at what comes easy to you, but not necessarily for others.  That is where you are going to get the greatest return on your investment, the biggest bang for your buck.  

If you are looking for your God-given talent, remember Go WiTh tHe fLoW, Baby!
