The trouble is that many people tend to undervalue the things they’re good at and overvalue the things they’re not. Ron built an extra room onto his home all by himself and he did a great job, but he says “Oh, it was no big deal.” And, unfortunately he means it. He thinks anyone can do it. But we know that is not true.I couldn’t do it, could you? Ron is a talented guy but he pushes any compliments aside that he gets about his work. He minimizes them. And you know what? He feels bad because of it, instead of stepping back and admiring what he’s done and being grateful for that talent.
You don’t have to brag incessantly about everything you do but appreciate your talents and celebrate them!
