Your gifts and abilities are activated by something external to you

Whatever your gifts or talents might be, there is something outside of you that activates them. If you’re a musician, and you hear a particular sound, you’re sense of melody is inspired. If you’re a writer, you might see an incident on the news that activates your creative imagination for a story idea.

Maybe you’re a cook, and you taste or smell a foreign food that provokes the thought in you to combine ingredients or spices that don’t necessarily go together. Maybe you’re a real estate agent, and you get a creative idea on a new way of selling homes by observing the sales process of a completely different industry.

The point is that inspiration, and the activation of your abilities, are usually the result of observing or experiencing something external to you. Therefore, I would encourage you to keep your eyes open and your head on a swivel. Great ideas are passing you everyday.
