At the heart of who you are lies the secret to your greatest success, best quality of life, and biggest contribution to the world. This is your Unique Ability — a special talent that always has these four qualities:
- Superior skill. You produce outstanding results with this talent. It’s so natural to you, you can’t help but do this extraordinarily well. Others notice this skill, rely on it, and really value it.
- Passion. You love to do this, and probably did it in some form long before you got paid for it. (In fact, many people continue to give their Unique Ability away for free because they don’t appreciate how special and valuable it is.)
- Energy. Using your Unique Ability gives you a boost of energy. The people around you get energy from you, too, because it’s fun and exciting to be around someone who’s both passionate about and talented at what they’re doing. Likewise, when you surround yourself with other Unique Abilities, your days are filled with positivity, dynamism, and creativity.
- Never-ending improvement. You’re already exceptional at this, yet you could do it for the rest of your life and always find new ways to do it better and better.
Discover this special part of yourself and bring it to the fore, and you get the chance to be celebrated and rewarded in life for doing what comes most naturally to you. It’s the truest freedom possible!
