Great book on how to develop your potential Apr 27, 2009
This book explains that having talent is not enough to be successful. You must work hard to develop your talent in order to become successful. The author outlines 13 factors to maximize a person's talent. They are:
1. Beliefs lifts you talent. When people believe in themselves, they unleash power in themselves that could allow them to reach their potentials.
2. Passion energizes your talent. Passion creates fire, provide fuel and sustain your energy. Passion allows you to carry on no matters how many times you fall down or how other people say that you cannot succeed.
3. Initiative activates your talent. You don't wait for everything to be perfect to move forward. You don't wait for the problem to disappear. You don't wait to gain your confidence or fear to subside. You start by taking the first step and things will get easier when you get momentum.
4. Focus directs your talent. Focus channels your energy to the right place. We should focus on developing our potential. We should focus on the present. We should focus on our strength, not our weaknesses. We should focus on the result to stay grounded. We should focus on the present and not worry about the future.
5. Preparation positions your talent. Preparation precedes opportunity. Preparation for tomorrow begins with the right use of today. Good preparation leads into action. Preparation allows you to position yourself when opportunity arises.
6. Practice sharpens your talent. Consistent practice sharpens your talent. Practice make perfect. Practice requires us to make the extra effort that differentiates us from success with failure. You can never arrive at your talent; you can only continue to strive towards it.
7. Perseverance sustains your talent. Talent provides hope for reaching your potential, but perseverance guarantees it. Perseverance cannot survive without a purpose. Perseverance means succeeding because you are determined to, not destined to. Perseverance recognizes life is not a long race, but many short ones in succession. Perseverance draws sweetness out of adversity. Perseverance means stopping not because we're tired but because the task is done. Perseverance demands all that we have.
8. Courage tests your talent. Courage is a daily virtue. You cannot do anything worthwhile without courage. Our courage will be tested as we seek a truth that we know may be painful. Our courage will be tested when change is needed, when our convictions are challenged and when learning and growing will display our weakness. Our courage will be tested when we face obstacles during our progress. You need to want to reach your potential and be willing to trade what seems good at the moment for what's best for your potential.
9. Teachability expands your talent. It is the desire to learn, unlearn, relearn and apply. You will expand if you keep expecting and striving to learn. Learning is a lifelong pursuit.
10. Character protects your talent. Character comprises of self discipline, core values, sense of identity and integrity. Character builds what's inside you. Character makes a difference in you. Character communicates consistency, longevity and influence. Character affects and influences your choice.
11. Relationships influence your talent. Surround yourself with people who add value to you and encourage you and your talent will go in a positive direction. The relationship in your life can make or break you. You should embrace relationship that expands your energy and avoid relationship that saps your energy. Your relationship will define you, so choose wisely.
12. Responsibility strengthens your talent. Responsibility is the foundation of success. It is a sacrifice that brings tremendous rewards. Responsibility when handled correctly will lead to more responsibilities. It will maximize your ability and expands your opportunity. Take responsibility of being a contributor instead of a liability. Responsible people enjoy an increasingly better reputation.
13. Teamwork multiplies your talent. You cannot do it alone to fulfill your dreams. Partner yourself with others who have strengths in those areas that you do not posses. Teamwork when done correctly has the compounding effect of achieving results. It will also expand your potential. If you think and achieve as a team, the individual accolades will take care of themselves. A talented person who is part of a right team becomes more than he ever could on his own.
So versatile! Mar 12, 2009
I have used this book very successfully in working through attitudinal entitlement issues with employees and in career counseling. I can strongly recommend this book as just good reflectional material for those assessing their worth in personal and professional development.
