Everyone who has the good fortune of being born into this world desires to live life to the fullest, spreading joy and happiness all around. People have different set of talents and skills that are as different from each other as chalk and cheese.

There is no dearth of gifted people all around but the competition is so fierce that many are, unfortunately, relegated to the sidelines while influential ones, with little to no talent, make their way through without any kind of struggle and easily get what they want.

Apart from competition, there is another thing to watch out for that is growing fast all over the world and will spell the death knell for talented individuals who were not born with a silver spoon in their mouth but achieved success on the basis of merit. It is called nepotism.

Nepotism is defined as the situation where a spoilt brat of an elitist family and affluent parents gets the required top position in a company or organization, no matter what field it is.

This problem is quite severe and has to be taken care off before it is too late as real talent is overlooked and undeserving ones get to have the cake and eat it too, without trying it out too hard.

Social Media

Luckily, things have changed for the better with the advent of social media and inborn talents that are neglected in the real world get to try out their skills in the virtual world with portals such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. to name a few.

It has served as a medium for people to cultivate their skills through online training where they can add up their own content without deviating from the topic.

Embroidery in Digitized Form

One such skill that comes to mind is embroidery, which is defined as the art of designing fabric with a piece of cloth and is done so without needles. Any person who can do so is considered a skilled craftsman in the field of embroidery.

There can be nothing better for an embroidery expert than to try out his skills through digital medium as everything is available online and there is little struggle for it.

Embroidery consists of various designs and everyone will apply their own skills as they see fit without confining to one particular color, size and shape. While it is true that embroidery digitizing can be difficult to learn and harder to do, it can be achieved if you follow it with focus, dedication and commitment.
