I know its hard to find something about yourself. For example, talent. Till now, I do not know what am I good at. And I do not know whether i have those "super power" or "super mind" hahahah. No one will know till they discover themselves.
Let's just talk about talent. Its very very hard to find your talent. But when you discover it, you will use it to the fullest and will actually love yourself more. I believe every single of us have different talents and they are not the same. And I believe everyone is talented in MORE THAN 1 THING.
But then, what if you see your greatest enemy is talented in the stuff that you know you are not talented in? Are you going to keep practising that particular talent? I know practise makes perfect but, some stuff cannot be forced. To me, no matter how much you practice but no talent, I think lower chance you will actually be greater than people with talents.
This can be related to many stuff.
Lets give for example.. design.
Someone with talent in design
Someone that is hardworking in practicing design but 0 % talent.
Indeed, hardwork + attitude + talent = the best thing ever. But to me, I think someone with talent in design is totally better than someone that is hardworking in practicing design but 0% talent.
Again , this is what I am thinking.
These are just my thoughts.
What if your greatest enemy is the one talented in designing and you are the one that is 0 talent but hardworking?
Obviously you will feel jealous, and this creates anger in your heart. Making you even more hardworking in something that you are not talented. Right? How about telling yourself and always remind yourself,
Jealousy is the greatest enemy.
In such a state, you should completely ignore your greatest enemy. Do not give a single care. Sometimes you need to act a little bitchy and tell yourself, " who cares he is actually good in design? Stupid. I dont give a single damn and I am sure there is something I am better than you." Then just walk away from there.
It seriously help for me lol.
But most people do not do that. Instead, they became jealous and from that moment, they start comparing their works to his.
Tell yourself, do you really think you are doing this right?? They just keep comparing and comparing. But when you are done with the semester and you got greater than him,what do you get?
You will only have a little happiness that will last for just a short moment and that happiness is gained from the wrong way.
To be honest, after completing my latest assignment. I am actually rethinking whether I should continue or no. This is because in that assignment, I have 0 talent in it. Then I told my mum that I am rethinking. She did not lecture me and scold me. Instead she ask me to think harder. hehe ♡
But for now, I do not want to drop it yet, I will want to finish my semester 2 and only see how. That assignment requires me to draw. And my drawing is damn shit hahahah.
I think everyone should at least sit by themselves once in a quiet place, relax and maybe listening to song, and talk to your innerself silently. Instead of trying hard to copy a talent of others, why not find it out yourself? Your own inner talent.
If your job is about doing what you love, you will love your job and instead of job, its a hobby. If your job is about doing what you love, you will love it everytime you travel to work and you wont feel tiring and whatever. Because everyday it brings you excitement. This goes the same to talent.
Instead of doing what you have 0 talent in, just to be the same as your greatest enemy so that you can win him, why not just find out what is your talent, make it as your job and be successful from there? Imagine you are doing a job you really like and successful, your greatest enemy will be jealous. It makes you feel way better than you working hard to win him. This is what I am thinking about.
Other than talent and design, it applies to many other stuff too!
Stay positive and do what you love. Indirectly you will be successful in your own way. Do not gain happiness the wrong way.
Just another last warning, this is what I am thinking and I am not accusing any of my enemy and friends.
