We often take our most powerful talents for granted,
and many of us may not be fully aware of them Gallup Strengths Centre
We’re so glad you’ve stopped by.
Right now, you might be in high school. Maybe you’re thinking about university or further study, maybe not. Maybe you’ve got absolutely no idea what you want to do. And it’s getting tricky to make decisions about thee future when jobs are changing so quickly with all the technological advancements.
More people are freelancing, working flexible hours, or heading down the entrepreneurial path.
That’s ok. You’re not expected to come up with all the answers on your own.
We know a great place to start.
We’re here to help you discover your talents – because you have plenty of them, even if you don’t know it yet. We will help you decide how to invest in your talents by adding knowledge, skills, and practice to amplify their power.
You can then use those talents to set goals and design your life (whatever that ends up being).
We want the world to benefit from your unique gifts. And, I’m guessing you’d like that too?
Why is this important?
You’re going to spend a large portion of your life working, in whatever form that might be.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you loved getting out of bed every morning? Wouldn’t it be awesome if the life you designed used your talents, and made you a happy person?
Yep, we think so too.
Where you once focussed on all the things you couldn’t do as well as someone else, you now see that there are areas of talent within you that have always been there and that flourish best in certain kinds of environments. Strengths Quest, D. Clifton et al, 2006
So what exactly does The Inkling Effect do?
We enter your life right before you start talking course and career options with your friends, family and career counsellors.
Before you begin navigating questions around what subjects you’ll be choosing for your final year and what you want to do at uni, or if you even want to go to uni at all.
We turn up when when you might be feeling stuck, and like you have nothing to offer the world. You may have lost your direction, and need a glimmer of hope to get you going.
It’s that time when your school workload is getting bigger, homework and assignments are ramping up and you have more to read and remember (you can check out our Study Skills Playbook here if you’d like to learn more about how we can help you study successfully with the right tools and methods).
Discovering your talents and working out what kind of life you want to have shouldn’t be scary, it should be fun.
We know the pressure is on you to choose the ‘right’ job, subjects or course of study – we’ve been there too. We also know that you can’t choose ‘right’ if you don’t know what excites you and more importantly what you’re naturally good at.
Take a breath, relax, that’s where we come in.
Your friends, family and teachers can offer wonderful support and advice, but at the end of the day, they’re not you.
Only you can choose where you want to go and what you want to do.
You hold ALL the answers.
The key is being asked the right questions. Our Online Find Your Magic Academy will do just that. We will dive into those questions to help you get to those very important answers.
• It’s important to recognise how you want to feel every day and to set personal goals based on those feelings in all areas of your life.
• That you are unique in your talents (1 in 33million people share your same Top 5 talent combination) and that by identifying them, you’ll be able to design a career you’ll love and live a life of happiness.
• That you have super-powers, everyone does, you just don’t know it know it yet. Whether you want to become a surgeon, a zoologist, a dancer, a plumber or you’re just not sure yet, exploring your talents and setting yourself goals will help you understand where you want to go, why you want to get there and help you find a way to turn those dreams into reality.
We believe the world would be a better place if everyone loved what they did. You deserve to live a life you’ll love.
