It is often said that “no one is born empty”, which means we all have different innate skills and talents hidden in us to enable us achieve our purpose in life. Some people identify their gifts and talents at a young age, while others discover them later in life. If you are still trying to figure yourself out, here are three effective ways to help you discover your hidden skills.

1. Do some soul searching

Soul searching is one sure way to find meaning in life as well as discover some of your hidden skills. Create time out of your busy schedule to just sit down and reflect on your life. Find a quiet spot away from distractions and comb through your memories with the intention of finding out what your hobbies and motivations are. What are some of the activities that you find easy to do and enjoy doing them at the same time? It could be that you are a natural storyteller who is good with words, yet you have not realised that you can excel in content creation. Or maybe you have always loved decorating your house and would be a brilliant interior designer. 

If the things that excited you as a child are still the same things that you find thrilling as an adult, this will be a great place to start in your journey of self-discovery.

2. Ask your family and friends what you are good at

This is one of the easiest yet most effective ways to find out what your hidden skills are. Reach out to some of your friends and family members and ask them to give you genuine feedback on what they think your strongest attributes and talents are. Write down their responses and if you realize that the majority of them gave the same answer, it’s high time you put the said skills into practice.

3. Get out of your comfort zone

Do you feel unhappy or frustrated with life? Many people end up living dissatisfied lives because they are afraid of stepping out of their comfort zones and embracing change. What they fail to realize is that progress is impossible without change. The comfort of the status quo will hold you back in life and prevent you from reaching your full potential. Be open to change, overcome your fears and pursue your dreams. You will discover that you have the ability and skills to do the things that seemed impossible. All you need to do is try.

    I also believe that love is a clue to finding out your skills and talents. When a person finds what they truly love money is no longer the motivation.
