If you have even a single skill on which nobody can beat you, you may be able to make a difference and enrich your life. People call this kind of person “expert” or “specialist”. It does not matter whether it is your hobby or job. It does not matter which category it falls in such as sport, arts & crafts, foreign language or professional job such as lawyer, certified public accountant, financial analyst, sales & marketing, engineer, human resource, internet marketing etc etc.
If you think that you do not have any special skill, talent or ability with which you can win the competition in your life, it is required for you to implement personal development for improving self-knowledge and developing strengths or talents so that you will enhance your lifestyle or the quality of your life.
If you have no outstanding skill, talent or ability which you are proud of, you cannot have a strong confidence in your life and you may have difficulties in taking positive actions for challenging your goal in your life. Even an outstanding talent or skill in a single area COULD help you enhance your activities in other areas. This can be said also for a school score as well. Suppose your scores are generally poor in all subjects and you lose confidence in working with positive mind. However once you get a very good score even for one subject, you must have confidence and such fact will affect other subjects. Once a student is successful in improving a score by making efforts, such student feels motivated to make the similar way of approach to other subjects as well because this student knows that he/she proved making his/her own efforts resulted in bringing good outcome.
Now I would like to focus on flower arrangement in which field I am a specialist. If you love flowers and you feel like being comforted by beauties of flowers and motivated to live together with flowers surrounding your daily life, you qualify to become a good floral designer because I believe nobody can beat a person who enthusiastically loves floral designs and this fact certainly helps him/her make continuous efforts which will bring remarkable progress. If he/she feels like doing floral designs as a duty assigned by somebody else, this person may have difficult time in making progress.
Loving flowers is different from loving floral designs. Suppose you love flowers but you have no idea about how to arrange flowers or how to make floral designs, your satisfaction may not be complete. Suppose you have kids and you do love them, if you can successfully grow, educate, teach and train them and consequently they develop themselves, you can be even more satisfied with what you did for your kids. You must be really happy with a fruitful result. The same thing about flowers. If you love flowers and you make them more value-added by doing arrangement and decorations and as a result they become even more beautiful and attractive, then you will love them even more deeply than before.
If you successfully earn decent skills of flower arranging by taking lessons from an experienced instructor, you can freely design and make flower arrangement of your own taste reflecting your idea and concept at any time you like. This will satisfy you and feel comfortable with your achievement every time you make your own floral decorations. What a wonderful situation this is because this helps not only satisfy your wish but also make other people happy who enjoy the decorations you made.
Some people who have an aggressive business mind may challenge opening a floral shop by making the best use of flower arranging skills earned from lessons. If your efforts work successfully, you may be able to enjoy making profit from your business.
No matter whether you do floral designs for hobby or for business, as far as your wish is fulfilled, you feel comfortable and satisfied with the result. In my case, I often donate floral decorations at the time of party I attend. I get nice words from people who hold a party and attend a party saying “Thank you for beautiful floral arrangements with which we are impressed”. It is so wonderful to enjoy making flower arrangement myself and share the pleasure with other people by donating floral decorations . I would really like other people to feel the same way as I do.
