Those are definition from scholars but i define talent in a single short sentence as

Talent is the abundant deposition in a man

Now you wondering you have the definition of the talent but you want to know what your talent is

In A single word “Your talent is what you have inside of you”

To help you, here is a step-by-step guide to help you discover where your true talents lie.

  1.  Separate ’to have’ and ’to be’

Now that you’ve written down all your dreams, you need to separate them into two categories:

’To have’ dreams: those which involve you gaining posession of something you don’t have right now.

’To be’ dreams: those which involve you taking on some new role in life.

Now write out the ’to be’ dreams separately — we’re only going to work with them.

  • 2. What provoked a reaction in you?

    Do you remember if you ever felt a quiver excitement when you looked on at someone else fulfilling a certain role in life? Do you want to be in their place? If so, write it down.

    3. What did you enjoy doing?

    Note down any activities or hobbies which you have enjoyed doing in the past. What did you like doing when you were a child, or a teenager, and as an adult? What do you enjoy doing now?

    4.  Get rid of what you don’t need

    Look through all that you’ve written down so far. Think hard about each of your ’to be’ dreams, and see which ones still cause an emotional reaction in you — that feeling of excitement discussed in step 3. Now imagine yourself in those roles. What would you be doing at this moment if you were in that role? How do you feel?

    5.  Group things together

    So, now you have a list of your real, innate goals for life. At the moment they’re all jumbled together in a list. Look at the list carefully and ask yourself — which of my dreams can I group together? Which ones are interconnected or in essence very similar?

    6.  Search for an outlet for your talents

    Think about and then write down all of the possibilities for realising your dreams in real life. What area of professional or your personal life are we talking about here? What kind of activities does it involve? Do your dreams and talents have a bearing on more than one area of activity or profession? The more ideas you come up with here the better.

    7.  Define your life’s purpose

    So, now that you’ve got your list of potential outlets for your dreams and talents, evaluate each scenario on a scale of 1 to 10 — from the least to the most attractive idea.
