Are you bad at everything? Then What to Do?

Firstly, it is impossible that you’re bad at everything. Yes, you may be bad at few things but trust me there must be at least one or two things you are good at. You just skip thinking how you could be better in your life. Giving up is not the last option. Are you excited to know if you’re good at something? Find your good sides by following these tricks:

Can someone be good at something they hate?

Yes, if you have dedication you can do everything productive. Skill is also important. May be you don’t like your job but you have to practice and continue work to fulfill your needs. These practices make you perfect for doing the job which you don’t like. If you’re a student there may be one or two subjects you don’t like, but for exams you read and got good marks in those subjects for a brilliant result. Like this you can be bad at something you love. Yes, you may love doing swimming but you don’t know properly how to swim.

You just have to keep going with dedication/patience and perform the things you’re good or bad at.
