Booster Shot: Develop your aptitude

Aptitude. This is best described as your natural ability and your capacity for learning. Whether it is teaching, designing, building, or any activity where you can use what can be described as your natural skills. Everyone has the opportunity to develop their aptitude. The key to taking advantage of this skill is to first identify what it is! If you are unsure where to start then ask your friends or colleagues to write down what they feel is your unique capacity. You can also find interesting assessment tools on the internet. If you combine attitude with aptitude you will find that you are now doing what you love to do, have fun doing it, be happier, and influence a lot of people. Just imagine what will happen if many people take this approach. What a different world we would have. Start today to have a positive attitude and with your aptitude, create a better world for yourself and others.

“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude”. —Zig Ziglar
