Just commit yourself to whatever you want to do. Far too many people give up. When you want to give up tell yourself no and push yourself further than you thought possible.

Pick a specific thing you want to be talented in, and learn to do it?

it looks like unless youre a pro talents don't count for sh*t once you're done with school and college and pubs and clubs and all that, how many kids picked up guitars in the 70s and now how many 50 year olds do you see cranking them up? it's kind of disproportional

seriously, it's a far too common misconception that talent is given and can't be learned, sure a good set of genes will help, but as long as you commit to doing something and becoming good at it, then you can achieve it. It's not like talented people don't need practice, they might need a little less but everyone needs to practise. So if you want to be talented then you should start with practising, a lot. Good luck with it and don't give up!

Let me get this straight. You're asking a bunch of people who are sitting at their computers, likely due to boredom, what to do for fun.

Talent is a natural thing, you either have it or you don't, BUT skills can be learned. For example, Cezanne, a very famous painter - he couldn't paint for crap naturally, but he persevered and learned techniques and skills and painted some seriously awesome pictures. I love his work.

If something really isn't for you, don't force yourself to do it - pick something you enjoy, regardless of your natural skill, and keep at it, keep practising, and don't let people put you down. Most people who are "good" at something have been doing it for years and years and working hard at it. Good luck, and don't give up

Talent can't be learned. That's the definition, it not learned. What you're talking about is hard work. That being said, most talented people don't work very hard, and don't go very far because of it. And yes, hard work can produce similar results to talent when you mix in dedication.

If you learn it, it's not really talent; you're talking about skill

Other than that, good advice. TS, even if you're like me and have no natural talents whatsoever, that doesn't mean you can't learn to be awesome at something
