Natural talents are inherent abilities.
A natural talent is an ability or aptitude, e.g., a talent for sewing or cooking.
A talent is something we do naturally. It is something that we do not think about; we just do it.Natural talents are activities you can do or perform that others find difficult to do
Natural Talents varies from one individual to another .For instance ,my gift can be sewing and yours can be cooking.
According to Emily Lambert @Plum, skills and knowledge represent someone’s past performance, talents represent potential.” A talent assessment is the most predictive way to place people into roles where they thrive,
And accurately quantifying talents will only become more critical in the next few years.
According to Myles Monroe, your talent is your WORK .Your J.O.B(Just Over Broke)is the profession you learned
