Do you want to know your natural habitat? Or would you like to confirm what you already suspect to be your calling? Well, let me offer you an easy guide. There are several ways for you to understand your calling. However, one of the simplest and surest ways is to simply look at your talents.
Your talent is an indication of your calling. It’s really that simple.
You were created with certain talents because you were meant to use them. It’s not a coincidence that you have a natural aptitude or inclination for some things or can do some things better than other people.
Let me illustrate with a personal example. When I was in secondary school, I was consistently the best English student in my class. I excelled at it, and at Literature-In-English, too. I loved stories, I loved writing and I loved to play with words. I write easily and I write ALL the time. It didn’t start today. On the contrary, I disliked of all my Mathematics teachers and what they represented. I struggled with Mathematics. It was like another language to me and I just couldn’t get how a group of numbers ended up as one number. I found it frustrating, and I was finally very glad to read Law in the University, far away from Mathematics.
Now, the love of a subject may not necessary be an indication for you, especially if you had parents or guardians who wanted you to take certain subjects in school. My point is that there is a reason why you have certain inclinations.
If your gifts, talents and inclinations were not supposed to feature somewhere and somehow in your life, then you wouldn’t have those gifts. Believe me, God doesn’t waste resources. The fact that you have a certain talent is a pointer to the fact that you were meant to use it.
However, that’s only the beginning. It is one thing for you to understand your talent, and it is another thing to understand how and where to apply it.
That is why I’d like to recommend the e-book ‘Find Your Significance!’ to you. It will act as a guide to show you how you can tie your talents, skills and experiences together to contribute something significant to your world from wherever you are. You can buy it for N1, 000 at www.thelifeaholic.com/store.

It’s your ONLY life. Make it significant.
