Because you have your own talent.
According to Dean Koontz, “I really believe that everyone has a talent, ability, or skill that he can mine to support himself and to succeed in life.”
You have your own talent. All you need to do is to find out what you are really good at. It is important to assess yourself before you commit yourself to it.
You cannot be good at everything. You can be good at something.
You cannot do everything really well. Don’t even try to do it. It won’t work. Just focus on what you are good at. Success comes from doing something you are really good at.
Failure comes from doing something you are not good at. If you want to be successful in your life, you must focus on what you are really good at.
“I want to hear you.” People want to hear us, but we are not listening.
“We judge people before we even have the time to know who they really are.”
We call them names. They are toxic, boring, lazy, dull, too loud, too soft, or even ugly. We call them names to make us feel better about ourselves.
All toxic or bad people want from us is to sit and listen to them. They want to hear you. They want you to understand them before you judge them.
They want to hear you. They want us to listen to them. They want us to appreciate who they are.
They are toxic because they don’t think like us, act like us, and work like us.
“If you want to understand toxic or bad people, change your own attitude toward them.” If you change how you view them, the way you see them will change.
As David Augsburger put it,
“I want to hear you, see what you see, feel what you feel
I want to be heard.
Here me as I hear you,
Listen, I’m listening to you.
So I will speak simply
with clear word windows
that let you see
all the way in
to where I live
