Think about all of your talents. What are you good at doing? Probably, you have many great skills. However, you likely have one or two things that you do almost perfectly. Imagine doing one of these things in front of many people. Imagine doing it perfectly. If you did this, then you totally crushed it!

To crush something is slang, meaning to do it wonderfully. Often when someone crushes something, they do even better than they thought they would. Actor and signer Vanessa Hudgens was a judge on the TV show So You Think You Can Dance. She watched an amazing performance by Mark Villaver and Comfort Fedoke. It was so good that she said they crushed it.

My friend Amy has been working with mini blocks these days, she is an expert at building them. The mini blocks is some kind of toy just like Lego blocks, but much smaller and complex than normal blocks that you ever see kids play with. She has done 3 of them so far, even though she is kind of crazy about them, she would stay up all night just to finish her masterpieces. Whatever, she really crushes it.

Do you have some special talents that differentiate you from others? I believe the answer is yes. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. Have you ever imagined that you show your talents through a way to a big group of people? If you can do it wonderfully, you just crush it and that would definitely be a shinning moment in your life. If you are not confident, it doesn’t matter. You can start preparing for it from now on.
