Take Your Talent to the Limit

My mom had a multi-millionaire baker in her.

My family believed her baked goods were out of this world. But when family, friends and strangers enjoyed her cream puffs, eclairs, chocolate chip cookies, muffins and brownies, most folks were over the moon.

Rave reviews.

She even began selling her delightful, plump muffins at the coffee shop where I worked at as a college kid. Customers went gaga over ‘em. 

But when she attempted to open a bakery / coffee shop, she did not see the journey through. All good. My mom’s experience did not include being a millionaire, famous baker. 

I simply vowed to see my talents through after reflecting on her baked goods experience because she genuinely had the talent, skills and unique gifts to bring a smile to millions around the world while filling their bellies.

Take Your Talent to the Max

Some days, I publish 10 plus blog posts between my blog and guest posts. I intend to take my blogging talents to the max.

Of course I face fears along the way. Sometimes I do not want to work. Everything feels too overwhelming. But I nudge through fear, feel it and proceed to take my talent to the ultra limit.

I do not work hard. Nor do I push myself. But I slowly, patiently, and calmly test the limits of my blogging talents over 15,000 plus hours of my life……and counting.

Do you take your talents to the max? Or do you talk yourself out of using your gifts?

People fret about seeing good talent go to waste. I followed high school hoops in New Jersey, one of the basketball hot beds in the USA. The amount of insanely skilled, talented hoopers who vanished into obscurity in the Garden State would astound you. Either a lack of focus or severe problems away from the court seemed to pull these talented youngsters off track but the truth slowly revealed itself; these kids chose not to take their talents to the max.

But for every 100th talented hooper lost to the street in NJ, you have a Kyrie Irving. He grew up in the Garden State. Kyrie decided to take his talent to the limits. He practiced 10,000 hours before his 21st birthday. He became one of the best ballers on earth because he took his talent to the limit.

Explore Your Talents Now

Some gift or talent resides within you. Perhaps you explored it a wee bit before pulling back in fear.

I invite you to delve into your talent deeply. Nudge in. Edge forward. Begin public speaking. Write and self-publish an eBook on Amazon. Buy your domain and hosting to begin blogging. Sing and upload your videos to YouTube; all you need is your phone camera, voice and courage.

Nothing truly depresses humanity as the vast graveyard of wasted talent littering our species for fear of failure, fear of criticism and yes, even the fear of success scares people into not exploring their talents.

Take your talent to the limit.

Be a beaming bright light for humanity.

Enjoy the ride, experience worldly success and inspire a new generation of people to explore their talents, too.

  1. Yes, Ryan. I find it good to push myself even if I don’t achieve as many guest posts as you do! It still seems like a lot to me. It’s the bit about getting out of your comfort zone and achieving something just a little bit more than you thought you could. Keep on inspiring!
