Think of Yourself as a “Person of Talent”

The key to career success is to think of yourself as a “person of talent.” To do that, however, you must first recognize your talent.

Talent is not your acquired skills or even your field of expertise. It is your natural “capacity for excellence.”

Happily, all of us have such a capacity. It is an attribute of our species. Like our opposable thumb, it is a characteristic that defines being human.

Unhappily, most of us never discover our talent. We grind through a forty year career, and never once feel the genuine happiness that comes from doing our natural best.

So, first figure out what you excel at and then bring that capacity to work with you and exercise it every day. It will transform your career into endless opportunities for experiencing some of the best of yourself.
