A spiritual teacher said you must avoid becoming one of those lost souls who wander through life trying their hand at every field of endeavor except for what they are born to do.
What were you born to do? The aptitudes you were born with provide the answer. Career advisors love talking about your skills. But hardly you’re your aptitudes. But it’s those aptitudes—the natural abilities you were born with—that will make what you do even more successful
While skills are those things you’re able to do right now—like singing, or operating a forklift—aptitudes are the special qualities inherited from your parents. But to turn an aptitude like singing into a skill, you must tap into it and train your voice to the level of a skill.
The wise teacher also said you were born with a unique mission in life. You’re granted the specific aptitudes, talents, and resources necessary to excel in the role you were born to do.
So discover your aptitudes by noticing what things and work you’re drawn to or vibrate towards. Chances are that’s what you were born to do.
