Use Your Special Talent This Week...

Make Someone Happy and Make Yourself Happy

Do one thing for 1 person this week that makes them SMILE and I GUARANTEE you will SMILE.

Use Your Special Talent This Week To Make Someone Happy.

  • You have many Special Talents that you might not think are Talents because you have probably had them your entire life, but believe it or not there are 1,000,000's of people who do not have all of your Special Talents.

  • What better way to make yourself realize how Special your Talents really are than to share them, because when you see how happy you can make someone else with your Talents it gives you a whole new appreciation.

  • I know that is why I love the Nail Business so much: because what I do makes others Happy, so it makes me Happy. Tammy Taylor

When I am doing my classes, I am teaching Beauty Professionals how to make a career doing Beautiful Nails, and they get so excited when they realize they can make a living doing what they love; when I write my emails and Blogs helping others have more successful businesses, and when my clients send me responses letting me know that I really am helping them and their businesses, it makes me happy.

When I first started in the Beauty business 28 years ago, what really got me hooked was when I would make my client's short, chewed off nails Beautiful and they would get so excited, I could see how much their confidence was immediately boosted; or one of my clients would come into my salon sad and need someone to talk to; I just encouraged them to talk for an hour while I did their nails, and when they left they had a brand new outlook.

So, if you are trying to figure out what your Special Talents are, THINK about the things you do that make others happy, and those things are your Special Talents.

Is Your Talent Organization?
Help your unorganized girlfriend clean out her closet and organize it for her

Is Your Talent Patience?
Babysit your nieces and nephews for the night to give your sister a break

Is Your Talent Cooking?
Bake a delicious Cake and take it to work
Cook dinner for a sick friend

Is Your Talent Technology?
Fix your Mom and Dad's broken computer (if it is not really broken, maybe you could just take an hour and show them how to send an email)

Is Your Talent Listening?
Listen to a neighbor who might be lonely
Invite a friend out to coffee that you know needs a break

Is Your Talent Motivating People?
Talk to someone who seems sad and give them encouragement
Take the time to chew someone out when they are off track, and when you see them get back on track you are both happy

Is your Talent Writing?
Send a letter or an email to someone who needs a little lift

If your Talent is that you are a Business Owner then:
If you are a Nail Tech - Do a Free Pedicure on an elderly person or a single Mom this week
If you are an accountant - Do one free tax return this week
If you own a restaurant - Invite the single parent family down the street for a free dinner this week

Do one extra thing for 1 person this week that makes them Happy, and I GUARANTEE it will make you Happy TOO.

with love,

If your gift is that of serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, do a good job of teaching.

If your gift is to encourage others, do it! If you have money, share it generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.

Romans 12:7-8
