The difference between where you are in life and where you CAN be is how well you have put your talent to work in your life.
The time, energy and passion you devote to your talent will ultimately be converted into its monetary equivalent. Money Always bows to, is magnetized by and rushes into the hands of SKILL. Always.
Success is really not complex. I can accurately predict where you will be in the next 5 years by simply looking at what you DO with your talent. Those who put their talent to work will always be masters to those who bury their own.
There is a very simple reason why I don’t like multi-level marketing. You devote your energy to helping other people build their wealth instead of using your energy to develop your Talent which, if properly harnessed, can make you wealthy.
If you invest in the development of your talent, no matter your feild of endeavour, in the next 5 years, you will rise to the top 10% of your profession. The top 10% in any profession make over 80% of the money while the rest struggle for crumbs. Make a decision to be the head and not the tail in your profession and calling and start working on your God given talents to turn them into exceptional Skills.
You can accelerate your success by simply devoting your time to what is important to you. I am a writer, therfore I devote my time and energy to the use of words.each year I write about 200,000 words to stay at the cutting edge of my calling.
If you are a doctor, actor, pastor, pilot, engineer…etc, you should devote yourself to developing your talents and expanding and deepening the areas of your expertise. Money gravitates in the direction of exceptional people. The market is tough but the exceptional man or woman will always stand out like a star.
Through the years, many well meaning people have encouraged me to move into other areas of endeavour but I have declined their counsel. Focus and consistency have brought me to the top 3% in my profession and I am richly rewarded for my efforts. However, those who dabbled into several ‘opportunities’ have stagnated their growth and success because they lacked consistency.
The Bible says in the book of Proverbs 22:29: ‘See a man skillful in his work? He will stand before kings, he will not stand before unknown men.’
It is the transformation of your talent into a powerful skill that will mark you for distinction and greatness in your feild of endeavour. It takes about 10,000 hours of consistently applying your talent in a particular feild to become a master in it. Success is placed in the hands of the focused and the consistent. Mastery is the result of doing one thing consistently in an exceptional manner.
Having talent is one thing but transforming it into a skill is a completely different matter. It is those who persist at working on their talent who rise up to be leaders in their feild of calling.
