Love you Katy Perry!!
Have you ever sat down and wondered why others around you are doing better than you, or why some people seem to be extremely good at something that enables them to really develop in life, yet you don’t even know what it is you are really good at doing? If so, then you felt the way I do right now.
I was never outstanding at any subjects in school, Physical Education was always my best subject in middle school, and English was my strongest in senior school, yet I have never been a stand out student at anything and when I really think about it I don’t see in me any real talents. Some people are gifted with musical abilities, or great actors, others are extremely good with numbers, yet I fail to see any significant strength in myself.
Yes I have dreams, like everyone else, but I don’t see any way to realistically achieve those dreams.
One of my best friends is a computer programmer, he did well all round in school, knew from a very early age what he wanted to study at uni, went on and did it, graduated and is now one of the top programmers in the country. Another one of my friends is working in a prestigious law firm and anther of my friends was in the Miss Universe Australia competition, being edged out slightly by Jennifer Hawkins.
I guess I am a bit frustrated and disappointed that so many people have amazing talents or gifts that have made their lives so much easier, yet I haven’t been dealt a great hand or just haven’t woken up to my true talents yet, so I’m struggling.
What would be some advise able to be given for how to best find what you are meant to be doing in life?
How do you keep following your dreams when you look at your skills and you don’t see what is required to succeed in that path?
Any advise posted here would be great, I’m sure there are a lot of people with the same problem.
