It is my firm belief that everyone is irreplaceable. Each and every single person on this earth has a talent that no one else has, and you can almost always find a way to utilize it (or at the very least make it a very enjoyable hobby). As the quote says, by being different you can find your talent.
It’s amazing the number of people who found a passion project and turned it into their full time career (I’m looking at you, Casey Neistat). As Casey says, “if the work you’re making is interesting to anyone, that “anyone”, those people, can find it”. The only challenge is the method to reach the audience.
For some it’s YouTube, for others it’s an Etsy store, and for others still it’s setting up a standalone business or finding a business that holds the same values. Ultimately, it is up to you to create product or content that people are interested in and find the best method to communicate with that audience.
Long story short: find your talent, nurture it, and find a fulfilling way to share it with others. If you’re a musician, write your own songs (or put your own spin on someone else’s) and perform at open mic night. If you’re a film maker, put your projects up on YouTube or Vimeo. If you’re a creative, share your works on Behance or Github. Find your method of expression and share your work with the world!
Happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope you’re having a good week so far.
