Develop your hidden talent.
What’s your talent? What do you do every day to cultivate your talent?
It’s not a good idea to expect someone else to do so for you. They might be able to help you develop in some way, but that doesn’t always mean they develop your own talent—most likely, they just train people who have the skills they need.
Even worse, it’s possible that you never have a chance to use your talent if you’re under someone’s control. If you have an artistic talent, you wouldn’t be so successful as an accountant. Or any occupation except an artist. As long as someone else decides what you do, there is a good chance that you wouldn’t be able to use your talent except for your weekend hobby.
Only you can develop your talent in the way you want. Hold yourself accountable for it, and do something every day.
