Knowing what your talents are is a huge accomplishment in itself, but it’s not enough. After you know what you are naturally gifted to do and how you are hard-wired, you have to place yourself in a position to use your talents. This means finding the right fit between you and your career. It can be an even bigger challenge but it’s the one that will pay off – both in terms of satisfaction & success.

However, discovering what your talents are is in itself a huge accomplishment; putting your talents in the right place can be an even bigger challenge!

When looking for a job or a career, most people’s focus is on the Externals: What are the jobs that pay the greatest?  What are the professions that gain the most prestige? What industry offers the largest stock options?  Is there a secure career track?  What fields will capture headlines in the next century?

This [External & Internal] discrepancy is the biggest reason why people cannot get an ideal job, are unhappy about their jobs, or get into the wrong job…

Yet, when looking for a talent, corporation & employer’s focus is on the Internals: Who are you?  What are your strength?  What do you have to offer? How can you benefit our company in the long term? Why should we hire you?

Unfortunately, these are difficult questions to answer for anyone who has never examined in any detail just what s/he has to offer an employer and does not know what her/his greatest strength & talent are in the first place.  This discrepancy is the biggest reason why people cannot get an ideal job, are unhappy about their jobs, or get into the wrong job; this discrepancy is also why companies hire the wrong people and lay off people.
