Not a Random Process for Talent Discovery

Once you understand that you can start deliberately planning for a life long talent in each one of your children, it becomes a very exciting lifestyle for everyone in the family. It is no longer a random process for the parents or the child.

In order to get started working on a talent, the key is to latch onto something tangible for your child.

Therefore, creating a focus of interest on which your child can build the first 100 hours of a talent is the outcome of the workshop I provide in the guide “How to Discover and Develop Your Child’s First 100 Hours of Talent.”

When you have a process, then you will not have your child waste his time with what might really turn out to be:

  • a party trick
  • a quaint hobby
  • or a distraction to fill your child’s spare time

Instead with the right plan on how your child can build himself a real talent, he is  going to at the same time be able to:

  • create value for other people
  • rise above the crowd
  • and live a professional life with passion

Don’t invent the process from scratch, because you can get the right process now from here:

Reasons for Hobbies that Do Not Matter

Without a talent focus, the only answer is group sports and cute hobbies – but it then creates problems later in early adulthood (Photo credit: Furryscaly)

Here are the common reasons parents sign-up their child for cute hobbies and group sports that are NOT talent related:

  • child is restless and needs something to keep him from boredom
  • don’t have anything in common to do or talk about in the evenings so it’s easier to drop child off at soccer or basketball
  • worried about child not being physically active enough after sitting in a classroom all day
  • worried child won’t make friends unless he’s involved in the same activity as everyone else

Those are some good reasons to address, but you don’t need to address them by sacrificing your child’s ability to have enough time to develop a real talent. With a serious talent focus, he can gain all of the above (motivation, friends, reasons for moving his body, and an interesting personality that even you will want to be around), AND, in addition, gain a meaningful productive life in early adulthood. The exception might be if your child’s talent does not involve anything physical, in which case, you may still need to get him out the door.
