Do you really believe that everyone has a special skill/talent?

I'm asking because I've graduated from college (psychology) but I'm not sure what I want to do in life or what I'm good at. The only thing I've ever been passionate about is writing but I have yet to get past 10 pages of a novel and I'm just feeling really old and loser-ish because I don't have a full-time job and all my friends do. It's a sucky feeling.

Not everyone, most. The main problem is many of us do not realise that we have at least one special skill or talent. There is a difference between what we want to be, and what we can really excel in. In certain cases some of us are lucky because some other people recognise the skill or talent that we have. In other cases an incident exposes our true calling. Let me give you an example out of many. One young man was the victim of witchcraft attacks. He was always disturbed by the entity sent by the perpetrator. His family brought him to see several ghost busters but there was only a temporary respect. His brother called me. My team realised that he was capable of fighting back. It took him less than half an hour to learn the ropes. Now he can at least defend his family against most attacks. Your talent? Seeing that you graduated in psychology, and are interested in writing, then there may be a place for you in online counselling service.

yes for sure everyone has a special talent^^ some are good advisers, some are good singers, good at drawing, good at writing,good at surfing... everyone is good at something^^ and you shouldnt feel bad about yourself but be proud^^ you finished college with a degree^^ not everyone did that. and is ok if you dont have a job yet. noone has the right to blame you. is very hard to find a job nowadays. you will find it soon dont be sad. also about writing if you like to write so much you should finish your novel and take it to an editor :) he might like your story and decide to publish it^^ you have to believe in yourself and never ever think bad about you. you must be proud of you bcs you have a dream and you are fighting for it^^

Yes I believe everyone has their own special skill or talent. I have the skill of being able to type realy fast. I beat my school record my senior year and I can type over 200 words a min with no errors. Everyone is unique in their own special ways.

I truly believe that everyone has a special skill or talent to call their own. some of us find it quickly and naturally. Some of us struggle to find that special talent. Find something that you enjoy and are very good at. Then you have found your special skill or talent. it may even be something you can pass along to someone else.

Yes, i believe that everyone has got some sort of talent which may be anything or in any field.. But some people never come to know what talent they have got and they choose some other way and thats the mistake that they make... Well, if you are good at writing then you should be involved completely in this.,

Yeah I do think everyone has a special skill/talent so long as you can be so sensitive that when it comes to you, you not will not miss it.When we can not find what our talents are, maybe we can forget the reality for a while and just consider our ideal.Though it may not be so practical to become true, it will tell us what we really want,then come back to real life,you can adjust it to fit your life.

I've been trying to find out what my talents are. I know that i don't have that many skills and talents, but i guess that people in this situation need to create their own skills and descover their talents. Skills are what we learn, and talents are something we've always has sense birth these are natural to us like being double jointed or something. So yes I believe that everyone has their own special talents and skills. thats what seperate us from other people.

Yes, I sure do believe that everyone has a special skill and/or talent. It is just like there is good in everyone, some you just have to look farther for it than others. Skills are not always what we expect them to be. Some are like being able to twist a cherry stem around in their mouths and tie it in a knot. Now how many people can actually do that?!
