A lot of talk in the ‘self-improvement’ field can tend to sound like there is something wrong with us. Well bad news first, I don’t care who you are, we all have something wrong with us. Funny thing is we can sometimes be the last to see it. That is a subject for a different post. Now for the good news, we all have many things that are great with us! When people tell me they are going to try to “fix” this or that about themselves so they can start living a more fun and positive life. My first thought is to commend them, but let’s face it thinking about our weaknesses and how to better them is really no fun at all. Instead I have a better suggestion. Focus on what we all do well. Think about it, what do people compliment you on? Are you a great cook? Perhaps you could cook a meal for a friend and arrange to bring it over so they don’t have to worry about making dinner. Perhaps you play a musical instrument? You could plan to play at a senior center or veterans home? Truth is we all have talents and things that we both enjoy and are good at. Finding new ways to use our talents to bring joy to the world can quite often bring joy to our own lives! Plus, as we develop our strengths it will give us the needed confidence to tackle those pesky little areas we need to work on. Which may not look so important after all. So find the light inside of you and share it with the world today!
