Make your mark by plussing your unique talents!
Every single one of us has a unique talent that will make us different from everyone else and can stand out in the crowd. There are some people with the ability to sing yet no one else does it that exact same way. Think of all the singers throughout history such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Dean Martin, Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett, and the list goes on and on. They were all unique in their own way.
Other people were brilliant painters yet each had their own flair with the brush that allows them to create their individual masterpieces. There are also a ton of motivational speakers out there but each has their own philosophy and how to help people achieve their goals in life.
If you have already discovered what your talent is then you should hone it and craft it, build on it and nourish it as this is your “niche talent” that will give you the best chance to take you to the top of your field.
If you do what you were meant to do it will create fun and excitement in your life as well as contentment and satisfaction and will also affect the lives of the people around you. Have you ever been around someone that is excited about something? If you have you probably noticed that their excitement is contagious. Maybe you have already been following your path that you were meant to walk and if so that’s fantastic! Not everyone acts on doing what they were meant to do.
There are times that even if you know it’s the path you’re supposed to take and that you’re supposed to travel on, it can start to lose some of its excitement and shine for you. If that is the case here is an idea for you.
The great singer Tony Bennett a few years ago was performing in Las Vegas to the older crowds. His manager, which is also his son, had this idea to put his dad on MTV. Tony thought about it a little bit as he was very skeptical of it but in the end he agreed. Neither one of them had any idea what was to follow.
This one innovative idea absolutely exploded into Tony’s renewed career. He became one of the hottest and most sought after talents on MTV and VH1. He once again topped the charts and his CDs were hard to keep in stock.
He started performing to sellout crowds at his concerts and not only was drawing grandmothers and grandfathers but also they were accompanied by their grandkids that were now converted Tony Bennett fans.
Tony and his son plussed his career by simply exposing his talents to a new generation and all it took was one creative idea. If Tony can do that then you can do it to.
Last week we talked about your natural talents and how to find them. Once you find them you need to start placing them and upleveling them. By up leveling and placing your talents you can create or even re-create a career or life that you didn’t even think is possible anymore.
