There lies within you a buried fortune; a treasure trove of talents, skills, and abilities just waiting to be unearthed. There are millions of people walking around with talents hidden away from the world. A buried wealth of possibility concealed by fear, worry, and doubt. Individuals shying away from their own greatness. Content in holding themselves back rather than face the possibility of criticism or rejection. Allowing the fear of failure or even success to paralyze them from taking action.
For far too many of us, this is our reality. What talent and ability within you have you kept buried? Why have you kept it hidden? Fear of failure? Fear of success? Anxiety? Shyness? Lack of confidence?
Let us do an honest self-analysis and then commit ourselves to the pursuit of unlocking our hidden wealth! Let us set goals that will force us out of our comfort zones. We don’t have to take giant leaps, but small steps out of our comfort zone is not only needed to help us grow, but that is what will give us the ability to bring our hidden talents and skills back to the surface. By stretching yourself just a little bit, you will learn not only about the skills you must cultivate, but you will probably discover that you already possess a lot of the tools needed for success. You will most likely find that you have either underestimated your current talent level or that you have overblown the difficulty and fear associated with a certain task.
Remember, action prompts opportunity. By taking action, you will not only expose yourself to greater opportunities for growth, but you could ignite a series of events that could one day bring you to a place you had no idea was even possible for you.
So let us take time to look within. What talents and skills have you overlooked? What treasures have you kept hidden from the world? Work to dig it up and bring it out, so we may all benefit from its discovery.
