A Few Things I Really Admire About You

by | Mar 30, 2021 | Self Confidence | 0 comments

Regardless of how well we know each other, here are some things I know are true:

You’ve always given your best and tried your hardest. You did the best you could with what you knew at the time, how much energy you had and what resources were available to you. Yes, you might wish you had been able to do more or that things had turned out differently, but you did your best, and you can feel proud and satisfied with that.

You have amazing inner strengths that shape your character and influence how you engage with the world. You are probably kind; kindness is the most common strength worldwide. You may also possess great amounts of creativity, courage, spirituality, humor, modesty, leadership or almost two dozen other qualities that are valued worldwide and are a huge benefit to humanity. If you don’t know what your strengths are, you can find out for free by taking the VIA Survey of Character Strengths or download a workbook I created called “24 Ways to See the Best in Yourself” here. 

Your smile lights up a room and can make someone’s day. 

All the nice little things you do for others — from holding the door to making someone’s favorite meal to saying thank you to the kid who bagged your groceries — add positivity to the world. Every one of them matters. Your simple gestures might be the nicest thing that happen to someone else all day. 

Keep up the awesome work and don’t forget to use some of that kindness on yourself.

Feeling Inspired

Feeling Inspired

One of the ways I like to feel is inspired. I feel it in my heart center the most, but often get goosebumps and feel “zhoozhy” all over. I can get this feeling from a beautiful vista, the smell of pine sap on a warm day, music, Super Bowl ads, stories of overcoming...

Sailing Out of the Doldrums

Sailing Out of the Doldrums

There is an area extending about five degrees north and south of the equator that scientists call the “itch” (for Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone, or ITCZ) and sailors call the doldrums. In this belt, the prevailing trade winds of the northern and southern hemispheres...

Eat That Popsicle

Eat That Popsicle

Imagine you’re a kid, in the back seat of your parents’ car, heading out on a road trip. At your feet is a bag packed with all your favorite things: activities, snacks, maybe a plush toy or a blanket. What’s in there? (Take a good look, I’m in no hurry.) In my bag,...

What’s the Point?

What’s the Point?

One of the biggest and most common questions I’ve heard as a coach can be summed up as, “What’s my purpose?” At some point in our lives, I think most of us ask this question. We’ve maybe done all the “right” things so far—school, jobs, relationships—and yet the day...

Absorbing Goodness

Absorbing Goodness

A couple of months ago, I got some great advice: “Take time to absorb the things that inspire you, rather than rushing to share them with other people.” The point my friend was trying to make is that while I’ve made a career out of helping other people love themselves...
