helping k - college discover their talent


Q: What is talent?
A: Phillip says, “Talent is the artistic expression of all of one’s life episodes.

"These unique episodes could be expressed in the fine arts, in science or any other task. Yet, it is always done with a certain fineness of feeling that is unerringly autobiographical.”

Q: What is talentjournaling?
A: “Talentjournaling,” says Phillip, “is reading short sections about talent then journaling about one’s feelings.

“Yet, background to this ostensibly simplistic exercise is the process of giving oneself permission to accept, then fulfill one’s unfulfilled wish.”

Q: Who invented talentjournaling?
A: Phillip created talentjournaling. He says, “I created talentjournaling to help young people discover their talent. While it operates within the realm of those well established cerebral mechanics of the conscious and unconscious mind, the unfulfilled wish and other psychologies, talentjournaling is original.

"As John Bunyan said, 'I have not for these things fished in other men's waters.' I’ve never read a book or article about talent, never seen a video or documentary about talent, never listened to a lecture or attended a seminar or class about it. It was all derived experientially - especially from writing and painting."

Q: What inspired talentjournaling?
A: This is another question we’ll let Phillip answer:

“Talent became an inexhaustible fascination to me principally because I saw it from afar while longing to embrace it like a child standing before a toy shop window who longs to play with the toys. But because he can not do so, their colors, their music and the wonderworking of their spinning are made bright with a heightened sense of awareness like romantic dreams of unrequited love and the many facets of that tenderness.

"It was this longing that allowed me to stand in awe before talent and inspired my work about its phenomena.”

Q: Will I discover my talent by talentjournaling?
A: Some may find their talent while talentjournaling while for most it will be only the first step in a process that occurs over time. Yet, this we can say with confidence: talentjournaling may be the best opportunity you’ll ever have to discover your talent.

Q: Is talentjournaling like taking a test?
A: No. Talentjournaling is all about you (the student). You can't make a mistake since you’re an expert on yourself, especially your feelings. There are no wrong answers, only right ones. So, feel free to journal what you wish!

Q: Do I need to complete a talentjournal in any certain time?
A: No. We want you to relax, enjoying your talentjournal and completing it at your own pace.

Q: My grades and scholastic test scores were not so good. Is talentjournaling still for me?
A: Yes! Emphatically, yes!

While we applaud good grades and test results, their measurements are somewhat limited. It is not unusual for those with a superior intellect to be overlooked by these processes.

By contrast, talentjournaling was designed to bring out the absolute best in you that may have been overlooked! So get a talentjournal right now and get started!
