Sharing your talent and your passion with others is one of the best ways to de-stress and boost your self-esteem. When you help someone else achieve a goal, you are also helping yourself. Have you ever noticed how great you feel when you have done a good deed for someone else—especially if you volunteered without the person asking? It is gratifying to be able to share a talent or a skill that you may perform well, with others.
There are always opportunities for sharing your talents with others. Sharing these talents with others helps you reconnect and re-assess yourself. Stress is reduced by the inner peace that comes by having a purpose greater than oneself. It is common in the frenzied pace of life today, to get caught up in the details of your specific tasks. But there are larger goals that can be accomplished by working together with others. Projects can be completed when we pool our talents and resources. The impact of sharing talents and passions with others can have life altering effects.
Her biography is an example of sharing your talents and passions with others, no matter what the circumstance.
"In 2002, I was diagnosed with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, a type of terminal cancer and was told I had three years to live," Tina Stull recounts. "I had to make some decisions about what I wanted to do with the time I had left. I decided that racing was one of the things I had been putting on the back burner but something I really wanted to do."
When Stull went back to the doctor they told her, "You don't have cancer, we can't find it; we don't know how to explain the pathology reports, so just go home."
"If I was going to race when I was dying, why wouldn't I race now that I was living," she said.
Today Tina continues to pursue her racing career as a National Hot Rod Association Super Comp Dragster driver and is using her talents to help others overcome their obstacles and reach for their dreams.
