Everyone Has Talent But Not Everyone Uses It

Suyog Raj Shrestha

Grade 10

In this world, people belong to three categories: 1) Who has talent (Everyone has), 2) Who knows they have talent. (Some of us know) and 3) Who use their talent (Only a few qualify here). When we are young and finishing our education, we know what makes us alive. We believe in our dreams. We know our specialties. Often we forget our talent when we choose our profession based merely on our educational qualifications and certifications. We neglect our interest and specialization and our talent starts vanishing.

Talent is never static. It’s always growing or dying. Everyone is born with the potential to do extraordinary in life. Unfortunately, we settled for ordinary. When someone asks what our talent is, we think for a while and say that we do not have any talent. Everybody has talent, it’s just a matter of moving around until you’ve discovered what it is. In most cases, we have never tried to explore our talent. Everyone is unique in one way or another. Even if you examine a person with disabilities, you will find something special within him. Therefore, never, doubt your existence in this world.

As Buddha said, “Everyone is gifted here, but some of us never opened their package”. Have you opened your package? Where can you find your talent? You can find it in your hobbies. You may be born with some natural gift. You can find your talent in your skills acquired during education. It may be in the form of writing, speaking, programming, designing, painting, singing, or managing employees or customer. It may be decorating the g home or cooking. It could be anything.


Sometimes we simply ignore our talent because it seems an ordinary thing to us. For example as a homemaker, you prepare food for your family. You know that you cook well and you like it. Therefore, you might be asking yourself, “How can it be a talent? This is my regular work and every homemaker like me is doing it.”There should be no question of talent as big, small, or ordinary talent. A talent is a talent. If anyone asks you, what your talent is? Say it proudly, “I can cook well”. If you appreciate your talent, you give it a new direction to evolve. You never know where it may take you in your life.

With ordinary talents and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable. If you have finished your education and do not yet know your talent, you are getting too late. If you are doing business or pursuing a job and do not know your talent, you are fooling yourself. One-third of your life already passed and you do not know what you want to do in this world. Do not wait too long. Trust your instinct and follow your heart. Identify one and trust it. You can always sharpen your talent by learning the required skills later.

Along with it expressing our talent is the key to a successful life. It can be opened by participating in various opportunities and platforms. Hiding a talent results in your problems so just show your talents rather than suppressing them. You might also ask “What if you are not good at anything and know for a fact you do not possess a talent or gift? Some people feel they are not smart enough to find a skill and excel in it.” Simply talent is not represented by smartness. In various life stories of various successful people, they are not smart but they take decisions wisely.

Express your talent!!!
