I have to respond to your interpretation of the comment Neil. I do things because they make me happy, not because I am happy to start with. Helping other people grow and improve is self empowering. I've had 3 wonderful occupation and I couldn't have been happier. Before that I had occupations that did not make me happy. This conversation is like "The Chicken or the egg". It may very well work both ways depending on the person you are.
Nikki, great observation and approach.
I don't HAVE any talents.
I'm sure you do! You just have to look deeper. Think of what you want. You might be talented at that.

I would like to share to you my experience.
I really like music a lot. My taste in music is quite diversified if you would ask. Anyway, I long to play the guitar when I was in High School but I don't know where to start. But that want led me to buying a cheap guitar and I started playing. It became an obsession. Then after two years it became one of my talents. My friends were amazed at how good I became and in a short time. Then I started showcasing my talent with everyone. I even taught some of my friends how to play.
Same with my voice. I was very shy to sing because I don't think my voice is not good enough. But when I got the confidence to do so, it turns out that I have a great voice.
Just seek within your Self. I'm sure you can find something your good at and worth sharing to the world. It doesn't have to be in the "Arts and Entertainment" section.
