When was the last time you acknowledged all the things you’re good at?
My guess? It’s been a minute.
Acknowledging our strengths gives us a confidence boost, making our success all but inevitable.
Set your timer for five minutes and list your strengths – what are you good at?
If you have trouble coming up with things, Five Minutes in the Morning offers the following tips.
- Ask those closest to you to name three things they think you’re good at (believe them!)
- Consider the times you feel most capable and empowered. What skills are you using? (those are things you’re good at!)
- Recount that challenges you’ve faced and overcome. Is there a common theme? (that’s something you’re good at, too!)
- What did you do that made you stand out as a child? You still possess that talent, even if you don’t do it anymore.
- Don’t be bashful!
Here’s what I wrote:
I am sensitive to the moods/needs of others.
I have such a capacity for love.
I can light up a room – I’m a born performer.
I am resilient – two car crashes in three years proves that.
I believe – deep down – I am magical (if I could only get past my logical brain).
I am intuitive. I can get the sense of something or a room instantly. I’m aware of energies.
I know how to play, even if I don’t always do it.
I’m compassionate & friendly.
I can see the positives in any situation, even if the only positive is my willingness to look for the positive.
I am the life of the party.
I am comfortable with silences.
I’m not afraid to acknowledge my shortcomings (most of the time).
I am determined to see things differently.
I believe everyone has magic in them.
I know that making myself better will make the world better.
Happy Friday, dear readers. I wish you a weekend filled with love and light! <3
