Your Skills Have Value
Everyone has skills that are valuable to the world. You are here for a reason, and that reason adds something to the world. Your gifts provide meaning in some form or fashion, whether you know it or not. There is tremendous value in your skills, regardless of what those skills are, and your job is to find and recognize those skills, and accentuate them for the benefit of others.
One of the ways you can identify your gift is to think about what do you do naturally with little effort that others find difficult? What comes to you with ease? Write it down and take some inventory of yourself. Think about what you enjoy doing? What would you do if no one ever paid you to do it? Are you good with your hands? Good with helping people? Good with administratively organizing things or ideas? What gives you energy regardless of the time or circumstance? Just because you can't think of your gifts, doesn't mean you don't have any. It just mean that perhaps you have to do some more thinking, more praying, or some more work.
We all have gifts, and each gift has both an intrinsic value, and a monetary value. There is great value in the skills that you bring to the table. In Proverbs 10:10, the Bible tells us that "a persons gift makes a way for them and brings them before great people". Your gift is designed to make room for you and bring you what you need. Your gift can provide for you, but you have to learn how to monetize what you do well. You don't necessarily need a promotion, a job offer, a book deal, a headliner at the next conference, or any accolades. You just need to identify your gift, relish in your value, and monetize your skills, if you so desire. At the very least, embrace your gift, and put your gifts to work for the benefit of the world.
