A must read for anyone who can’t figure out what area to focus on when it comes to their passion or talent.
I can hear the sound of frustration and confusion coming from the hearts of so many people especially some young ones who are distracted by the myth called
” I don’t know what I should focus on because it looks like I have passion and talent for almost everything “
Accepting this myth will make you do the following;
1. YOU WILL NOT MAKE ANY MOVE
I have seen a lot of individuals especially youths who are filled with passion and have the awareness that they are talented in so many things but the confusion of which to start makes them stay back and do nothing about their passion or talents.
2. YOU WILL BE TEMPTED TO DO EVERYTHING
About 4 years ago I began to discover the different areas I had passion and talents in but one of the mistakes I made was to go all out instead of checking which one is more demanding to start with.
After making so many mistakes, I came to that point where looking for answers to my frustration was the last option.
So many people are deceived to think that if they don’t start with all they have passion or talents in then life will not give them the chance to carry all of them out but that’s not true.
Every great man who you admire today started from somewhere.
3. YOU WILL PAY NOT LEARN IN A STRUCTURED MANNER
The day I found out that my major problem was lack of a learning structure for my passion and talents, I had to solve that issue and today I can boldly say my learning structure has really improved.
If you can’t connect the dots between what you should learn and who you need to learn from then everything both online and offline that has knowledge or information in it will be your pursuit.
For example you have passion for business, music, cooking and dancing, it is not wise to be learning everything you see on business, music, cooking and dancing because a time comes where you will be frustrated and feel like nothing is working anymore.
It is wise to pick one of your passion and stay consistent in it by learning everything about it. When you start getting results in the first passion then you can pick another one.
4. YOU WILL MAKE YOUR FOCUS TO BE ON THE WRONG PATH
Trying to doing everything you have passion for and talented in will make your focus to be on the wrong path.
Today you will be tempted to focus on business and next week you will want to focus on cooking, all of a sudden you see yourself in the wrong path which you thought was the right path to follow.
The wrong path most times can be you trying to do what others are doing instead focusing on your uniqueness.
The wrong path can be you wanting to follow everyone doing the trending thing online or offline without asking yourself why you should do it.
I have being there before and it can be frustrating and energy consuming.
One of the rules I always give to my clients or in trainings on the subject of passion and talents is that you need to pick just one among others which is screaming within you for expression.
Not all the talents or passion you have that is screaming for expression. There is one major one which you need to sit down and find.
Sometimes you just have to put off the noise from social media and find it. Other times you need to find a coach or pay for a training where you will be taught how to find it.
I believe from now on you will no longer chase after everything you either have passion for or talents in at the same time rather you will take out your time to check which screams louder than others.
Do comment below how this has shaped your thinking and helped you quench the fears within your heart.
