What’s Your Unique And Valuable Skill?
When I was just a kid, I always dreamed of being an actor. Sure I loved to play dress up and act out my favorite cartoons, but what was it that made me want to be an actor.
Then, I moved on to other career choices like being a police man or even a firefighter. It was the dream of most young boys to be the hero and save the damsel in distress.
Now that I’m a month away from turning 31 years old, I discovered that it really wasn’t acting that I wanted or even wearing a uniform to save someone, my childhood desire was more about making a difference in people’s lives than studying scripts for movies.
You see, over the years, I’ve really come to realize that my personal unique and valuable skill is simplifying difficult things and making them clear to others. In the case of advice to friends, I have a gift to ask powerful questions that simplify their situations and help come up with a solution much faster.
In business, I am able to teach my clients more about themselves and their needs to show them how to bring more value in the marketplace through what they offer.
For my son, its taking the moments to listen to what he’s really saying and coaching him to find solutions on his own.
My unique and valuable skill is to make it simple.
What’s yours? Have you stopped for a moment to think of the one or two things that you do extraordinarily well?
My goal for you is that you search for it. Analyze your life until you find that common denominator.
Once you find your unique and valuable skill, your passion will follow and you’ll be able to achieve much more than when you’re trying to fill someone else’s shoes. You’ll also realize that people will completely value you when you focus on it!
