Some of us just know what we're good at. Instinctively we know what motivates us and we go for it. Such people can be found at the top of their professions and success seems to follow them wherever they go. The rest of us may be forgiven for thinking that we simply don't have such abilities.

It may surprise you to know that this is not true. Everyone has something that they're really good at. Most of us have several skills and talents that could make us into winners if we only knew how to use them. The first part of learning to use our abilities is to identify them in the first place. If you don't already know what you're good at, think of taking a job skills test to identify your strengths and weaknesses.

Born to Lead?

Ambition is a large part of most people's career plans. The ultimate test of success is whether you are appointed to a position of leadership in what you do. This brings additional demands on a person alongside the original talents that are requirements of the job. Leadership requires certain skills and qualities that cannot always be learned.

A recipe for certain success is when someone finds the exact job to match skills and abilities, and then discovers a further talent for decisive leadership. Some people lead without even thinking about it. They do it because it comes naturally to them. They make good leaders because others learn to trust their wise decision making and their ability to assume responsibility.

If you desire leadership then you can build on whatever leadership abilities you already possess by training yourself. Volunteer for tasks involving leadership. Gain skills and experience doing the work that you love in the environment you prefer, and practice your leadership skills whenever you get a chance.
