Who Are You? Part Eight of Discover U

Uncover Hidden Talents as you continue on a journey of self-discovery with the Discover U series. In part eight you will think about your talents and dreams.

What do you dream about doing someday? What activities fill your heart with joy? What are you passionate about? What is your unique contribution? Be still and listen to your heart. Think big and imagine what you would most want to do if money and time were unlimited.

The book “How to Find You Mission in Life” by Richard Bolles is a little book with big ideas.

What talent causes you to lose all track of time while exercising it?
Look for the place where your greatest talent and the world’s greatest needs intersect.

Or as Aristotle said: “Where the needs of the world and your talents cross, there lies your vocation.”
The book “Now, Discover Your Strengths” by Marcus Buckingham and Donald O Clifton presents results of a study by the Gallup Organization. Now Strengthsfinder 2.0 is available. You can identify talents within 34 themes.
