What Are Natural Abilities
Each person has a set of abilities that make certain interactions and tasks happen more easily and with less energy spent or even providing energy. Having a career that takes advantage of natural abilities provides satisfaction, is less exhausting, and more productive than working without them or against them. Working outside of your abilities is possible - you can even be successful - but it will require considerably more energy. This can impact other areas of your life creating a work/life imbalance and leaving you feeling drained. Discovering your natural abilities provides an understanding of what comes easily to you and highlights a place to begin your decision making process.
Abilities are different from interests, skills or values
Interests (what's important or meaningful outside of you). What are you drawn to, what excites you? Considering what your interests are will help direct where you want to use your abilities. An interest assessment can add value to understanding what to pursue with your natural abilities.
