I’ve been known to advocate the importance of using your natural talents to propel you through life. Our innate strengths are often what we use most, mainly because they are the things that come easy to us. Regardless, I haven’t duly credited drive, which is equally, if not more, necessary in succeeding (whether at work or in life). For example, I love to write and would consider it an area I’ve excelled at from an early age. However, if I’m given a college English assignment that has no interest to me, I won’t do very well at all. On the other hand, computers and technology have basically been non-existent to me growing up. I hardly touched a computer until I came to college and now web design has grown to be a large part of what I do.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
