How To Profit From Your Gifts And Talents

gifts and talents

We all have special gifts and talents. Is it possible to profit from them? Is it possible to make them our career or turn them into a business?


Yes it is possible and it is what we are meant to be doing.


We are here to use our unique gift and talents to help others. In fact I have come to believe that if we do not share these gifts and talents there are negative consequences. I will explain this later.


Last year I read the book “The Millionaire Messenger” by Brendon Burchard.  In the book Brendon says “We all have a  life story and a message that can inspire others to live a better life or run a better business.”


His book shows how you can share your message to make a difference and also make an income.


He says…………..

…………if you  have struggled through something and survived your story is going to help others who are going through that same struggle.

………..If you have figured out how to do something well there is a market for that knowledge.


You can read more about the book in my blog post  How To Make a Difference By Sharing Your Advice


And the follow up post I did  How To Become An Expert And Make A Difference


Brendon says that the 9 most lucrative topics in the expert industry are:


  • Motivation Advice
  • Leadership Advice
  • Financial Advice
  • Business Advice
  • Marketing Advice
  • Relationship Advice
  • Spiritual Advice
  • Style Advice
  • Productivity Advice


What is it that you know how to do very well?


What life struggles have you been through?


Whatever the answers are,  know that you can help others by sharing your gifts and talents, or your story  and at the same time build a career. That is a win/win situation.


 Sharing your gifts and talents from a health perspective


Recently I picked up a book I have owned for about 20 years. I intended to have a quick browse through it however I  found myself glued to every word.


The book is “The Body Is The Barometer Of The Soul – So Be Your Own Doctor” by Annette Noontil. The author says that everything we think has an effect on our bodies.


Having battled with a major health issue this year  it felt like she was talking to me as I read.


Early in the book she says “Everyone of us has different strengths that we have mastered and if we do not use them we lose them. We need also, to teach our skills and our “know how’ to others.”


She teaches in her book that when we are not following our purpose and using our skills it shows up in various ways in our bodies.


This is what I mean by saying that if we do not share our gifts and talents there are negative consequences.


Annette’s advice….. “Find out what you like doing best in the world and that is your profession for this lifetime. If you are earning your living from what you love doing, that is when you will be happy.”


Reading this book served as a reminder to me of the message in The Millionaire Messenger.


We all have a unique message to share. You and l have our own gifts and talents and it is our responsibility to share them.

    I would love to see many many more people living a happy life because they were making a living from sharing their talents and gifts. I love that Brendon Burchard seems to be on a mission in his life to help more people do just that. Very much like yourself Sue. 🙂

      Thanks for your comment Shaun.

    Hi Sue… loved your post today.. Great advice here and a reminder that we all should be sharing our experiences with others. If you can make a bit of money doing so all the better. The Millionaire Messenger is an excellent book and if you’re willing to do the exercises that are introduced throughout…. you’ll experience some personal growth… I know I did… Thanks again Sue for a great post..

      Hi Robert, Great to see you on my blog. The Millionaire Messenger is excellent and yes if you do the exercises I think it is not possible to experience some growth.

      Thank you for your comment Robert.

    I had a school teacher who always told me I would be a good actor. She said actor because she thought I would be good with drama lol. I think she was just mad because I sometimes distracted her class. Nice post Sue!

      Did you ever think of being an actor Rory. You are great on video but that is being you. 🙂

      Thanks for your comment.

    Hi Sue,

    Yes what skills, what passions, what gifts do we have to share?

    WE often don’t share as we get older, We often think that others can do it better or its already being shared or we are too busy, or what we know doesn’t matter.

    Often our excuses get in the way…. until….. we are woken up with our excuses.

    Thank you Sue

      Hi Di,

      I think your question “what skills, what passions, what gifts do we have to share?” is great because I think often we do not see our own gifts.

      I agree with the reasons you have said as to why we do not share our gifts, passions, knowledge etc and I will add to it that we can assume everyone knows how to do whatever it is.

      Thanks for your comment here Di.

      Hi Deirdre, They are great books and I am sure you will enjoy them. Yes we are all gifts and we have much to give.

      Thanks for your comment.

    Hey Sue,

    When you know what your talents are, you feel more in tune with your life. You can also use those talents to excel in the business world. Whether you leverage those talents in your product or service, or you use them to network and make quality connections, they are important to know.

    When you capitalize on your talents, it no longer feels like work, it just feels like living. And anything that makes business and life more enjoyable is bound to be a good thing. Eventually, thanks for sharing your interesting post with us.

    With best regards,

    Amar kumar

      Hi Amar,

      It is interesting you say “when you know what your talents are” as there are many people who do not know. I know for me I used to take the things I did well for granted and assume everyone did them. It is important to know what they are.

      I agree with you that anything that makes business and life more enjoyable is a good thing.

      Thanks for your great comment Amar.

      Have a wonderful rest of the week.

    Love this post Sue!

    I totally agree with the “if you don’t use it, you lose it” concept of sharing our gifts and talents with those who need them. I also feel it’s very selfish to keep these things to ourselves if someone else can learn from them.

    I loved where you shared Annette’s advice, “Find out what you like doing best in the world and that is your profession for this lifetime. If you are earning your living from what you love doing, that is when you will be happy.”

    Awesome share, thank you!

      I agree that it it is selfish to keep things like this to ourselves when we can help others.

      Yes that is great advice from Annette. It is so much the message within our community too so I guess it resonates with us.

      Thanks for your comment Kristine. 🙂
