Talent is captivating, seductive and inspiring.

We are left speechless by the beauty of Michelangelo’s sculpture.

We become riveted and enthralled by Adele’s angelic voice.

We double over in laughter by the comedic genius of Robin Williams.

We are captivated and awed by the performances of Cirque du Soleil.

The purpose of this message is not to minimize nor denigrate the need for talent…but it is to emphasize and exalt qualities independent of talent which, when practiced, add value to others and ourselves.

While the following traits are not a comprehensive list…they are among the most prominent qualities that require zero talent and which lead to a rich, happy and fulfilled life.

All of these qualities are soft skills…they are smart choices which require no one to choose us or give us permission.

The best part?

They are all free.

Zero talent required.
