Everything takes perseverance to get good at.
I have been playing guitar for 12 years and I still suck, but I refuse to give up.
If you're not willing to stick with something and refuse to give up and place great amounts of time into it then you won't improve. Just doesn't
"Gifted" is a word used to describe people who spend insane amounts of time improving a craft they are passionate about and never give up or get
"disappointed" when they believe they have given 110%.
110% is a decade long process that takes hours upon hours of hard work.
With that said, instead of trying to find something you are good at, find something that makes you very uncomfortable and try that as a hobby. Also
get the idea of "gifted" vs "not gifted" out of your mind. It is simply however hard and determined plus amount of hours put in.
You don't become a great guitarist by watching Youtube videos. You become a great guitarist by practicing for hours a day and never giving up or
feeling too old or too late.
It is the same with every hobby.
One of the easy things to get into for most people is writing as it requires very little cost wise and you will become as good as the amount of time
and effort you put into it.
If you aren't too uncomfortable with the idea try writing fanfiction about your favorite show and posting it online. If not there are fiction sites
that you can get reviews online.
If that's not your thing then try gardening, try selling what you grow at a farmer's market.
