What is your true gift?
Find your true gift to thrive in business
We all get into business to win – but the key to winning in any business is to align with your true nature, because that is how you position yourself for success. Millions of people around the world are unhappy in their careers. This is because they went the “traditional route”: decided what they wanted to do early on, going to college, taking a job in that field and then trying to work their way up the ladder.
Unfortunately, most people don’t know what they really want in a career or have not figured out their unique gifts yet when they make this choice. This means they’re spending their lives trying to build a career they don’t truly care about or that they are not able to excel at. If you are a business owner, you may find that you’re in over your head or that you feel like an imposter as a leader. This happens because you have not identified your true gifts and what you can bring to your organization.
So what is your gift? When trying to figure out how to find your gift, you need to do a lot of soul searching. Take a close look at your values, what makes you feel energized and how you best interact with others. You can also take our business identity quiz now to find out which natural gift you bring to your business.
Building a team
Once you know if you’re an artist, a manager or an entrepreneur, you can build a team around your skills and talents. You can also help your employees ask the question, “What is my gift?” so they can thrive in your organization. Identify whether you have the right people in the right places based on their gifts and abilities to understand others, envision outcomes, inspire others and understand themselves. As Tony Robbins often says, “The secret to living is giving,” and when you equip your employees with the tools they need to find their gifts, you are truly building a unique business.
Stop surviving and start thriving
When we work in or run a business that does not tap into our true gifts, we go into survival mode. We don’t love what we do, we don’t feel a deep connection to our team and we don’t feel like we’re having a real impact on the world. It’s time to stop surviving and start thriving in your career. Once you have answered the question, “What is my gift?”, you can start utilizing it in every aspect of your business. Using your values and gifts as a baseline, you can turn uncertainty into action, focus on a meaningful vision and truly create the life and business you’ve always dreamed of.
Finding your gift and using it every day is the key to deep career fulfillment. If you want guidance on how to find your gift and put it into action, take the initiative to attend Unleash the Power.
