Food for thought, inspiring quotes and examples.
I always meet brilliant people. And what strikes me: they under-estimate their own potential and make themselves smaller than they are. Entrepreneurs do not realize that their own uniqueness determines the uniqueness of their product. Professionals are captured in an organisational structure that too often limits them in the use of their utmost potential: their natural talent.
This is such a loss of the great resources that we can build on, whenever and wherever we are. Our talent is the most powerful resource that we have to realize our dreams and contribute to a better world. We may lose everything we have, our job, our business, our house, even country; your talent will always be with you!
During the 15 years that I lived and worked abroad I discovered that this applies to everyone in the world. All people in the world have a unique natural talent and I really wish that we could all work based on our talent.
I seriously mean everyone, from farmer, confection worker, director to president, and worldwide. We are all connected and dependent on each other. Through the internet, through nature, through the air that we breathe and the food we consume; e.g. we only enjoy chocolate and peanut butter because someone elsewhere has contributed to its production.
Working based on your talent means that you work based on your own genuine strength, your positive energy and your own abundance. This gives room for sharing, caring about other people and supporting them in the development of their talent. Talent gives hope and confidence. For the successful outcome of meaningful initiatives that are talent-driven.
