Are You Underestimating Yourself…


Are you underestimating yourself? Are you underestimating your talents while overvaluing what others can do?

For example, maybe you’re a great interior decorator, and people, over the years have come to you for advice and everything you’ve told them has been exactly what they loved. You just have an eye for colors and fabrics and styles and, well you get the idea. In fact, you’re very creative. Many people have told you that you should be doing this for a living.

But somehow you don’t see it that way. You seem to think that anybody can do what you do. Anybody will know exactly how to decorate their own home or office. But then why do so many people come to you for advice no matter where you go?

You’re at the checkout line in the grocery store and you see your neighbor, and she has her friend with her. What’s the first thing she says? Oh, I’m so glad to see you. This is my friend Dave and he just bought a place a few blocks from us. I told him that YOU were the perfect person to help him decorate it! Hint… hint…

But instead you focus on your other neighbor who has a landscaping business. And you say to yourself “Now, that’s a talent! I wish I could create some of the designs that Larry can.”

Okay, Larry is talented but so are you. One is not better than the other. Larry has a talent for knowing how to create a beautiful garden with flowers; you create beautiful spaces using another medium. You BOTH are using your natural talents, but Larry has built a business around his. Hint…hint.

Don’t underestimate your abilities but instead use them to move forward in life.

Enjoy…


Enjoy your Saturday! Do something nice for yourself today. Or, even better, do something nice for somebody else.

Go watch a sunrise (or sunset). Go to a park with the kids. Get outside if you can and just take it all in. It’s relaxing. It’s fun. It will make you smile.

If you want to mop the kitchen floor I can pretty much guarantee the floor will still be there when you get home. It won’;t get up and run away if you don’t get to it first thing. But you may miss that spectacular sunset. You may miss those beautiful flowers. You may miss that “ahah!” moment that the kitchen floor will never give you.

Think about it.

 It’s how you measure it that matters…your success. It’s how YOU feel about what you’re doing and about the path you take that should be paramount.
Sure, you can listen to the advice that others give you- and it may very well be worth it. But if it doesn’t feel right to you, then no matter what they say, you should probably leave it alone.
Go at your own pace. Let others go at the speed that is comfortable to them and let them seek the path that is right for them- it might not be the right thing for you to share that same road.
I think you’ll find your own path, the one that sings to your soul, has the best view of all.

Leave It Behind…


Leave it behind…that junk from the past you’ve been carrying around. Maybe it came from a cross word said by someone no longer with us. Maybe it came from something someone did to you in ignorance. But where ever it came from ask yourself if its serving you well now or just making you feel bad. If its not doing you any favors then its time to leave it behind:)

Keep Moving…


Keep moving…the best way to get where you want to go is to keep moving.

Did you ever notice that once you pushed yourself to get up and get something done that you now had the energy to keep going and do even more?

If you just take that first step, if you just get up out of that chair and start something, even something small, you will soon find the energy and enthusiasm to tackle bigger things.

Be Good…


Be good to yourself. Take the time to spend a few hours in the park reading. See that movie or visit that museum. Take that little (or big) vacation.

It doesn’t have to be “all that” but we all have little things we’d like to do but we find excuses not to do them (and then we’re unhappy)

You deserve to feel good about yourself and to treat yourself well. It reflects itself in the things you do. People who are confident and respect themselves are happier and respect others as well.

Yes, you should be kind to others. But be kind to yourself as well.

Keep It Open…


You never know how wonderful things might happen unless you keep an open mind. Incidents that at first may seem dire to you may just be what you need to open the door to a new adventure
So before you judge it, before you toss it out as something you cannot or will not do just stop and think and let the idea “set” awhile…you may just change your mind and be genuinely happy about it.
