Let your talents shine
Category : Celebrate Learning DIY
There are certain things you know heaps about, and other things you can do that make you proud. Whatever they are, whether they help others or just make you smile, don’t hide them. Let them shine!
You have a unique set of things that you know and can do. Maybe you know about cars, clothes, animals, computers or outer space. Maybe you play a sport or an instrument or take photos, or maybe you can cook a delicious crème brulee. I can balance long pointy objects on my chin. Okay, so in itself that’s a pretty pointless skill, but I do it because I love making people laugh! Sir Ken Robinson nailed it when he said, “It’s about passion, and what excites our spirit and our energy.” Or, as civil rights leader Howard Thurman put it, “Don’t ask what the world needs, ask what makes you come alive and go do it, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” Your gifts, talents and interests matter. So don’t hide them, let them shine!
