For each of us, there is a life that is uniquely and simply ours. A life that comes from our specific soul: from our strengths, values and passions.
Yet, like a fish who doesn’t recognize how special and important water is for him, we humans often have blind spots about our own natural greatness.
Someone compliments you on how empathic you were with the clerk at the grocery and you don’t quite understand. Doesn’t everyone notice what’s going on with others? No, we sure don’t! Then you tell a friend how great it is that he always seems to know the most efficient way to organize a project and he doesn’t know what’s the big deal!
If you feel you are living anything less than the life that is totally, joyfully yours, take some time over the next few days to notice your specific strengths, values and passions. What do you love to do? What comes naturally to you?
Ask a few friends or colleagues what they notice you doing naturally or with enthusiasm. What do people often turn to you for? Advice? In what area? Help with fixing something? What? Getting something started? What?
Just by focusing on this for a few days, you will be living a life that is more fully, uniquely yours!
I’d love to hear what kinds of things you discover about yourself and your best life . . .
