Default How do I know if I'm good at something.

I always feel like I'm not the best at everything, (except school work). I don't know whether I'm good at something or not.

Any tips?

Pick something you like to do. Practice makes perfect. As you practice you get better.

Gift does not necessarily equal technical skill. It could be a soft skill, like having good insights. Maybe look for patterns of affirmation. For example, if people are always asking you to watch their bags, your gift could be integrity, or trustworthiness.

Do you really want to be the 'best' at something?
