Many people have been criticized for abandoning their well-known talents or gifts and using other or lesser known skills to garner success. The major reason for this criticism is that society gets use to associating the person with their well-known talent. Often times when we are achieving some level of success in our current position, we are reluctant to accept new challenges and chase new opportunities because we fear failure. Anyone that is seeking to reach great heights in their professional career must be willing to push themselves beyond their natural talent into new areas that can broaden their skills and catapult them into a new level of success.
What you are meant to do can easily be said, but not easily done. Using your talents to form connections that yield results is an equation worth finding out and exploring. The problem with a lot of people is that they skip the discovery phase of their life and let others tell them who they should and should not be. The harsh truth is no one knows what you should and should not become but yourself.
There is no formula for success. A high level of success usually comes from challenging yourself in an area in which you may not be custom to. You must not become complacent but push yourself to embrace new opportunities that may bring a greater reward. If you really want to see yourself as being successful use all of your skills and many talents and do not solely rely on your natural ability.
