As Sir Thomas Brown said, “All the wonders you seek are within yourself.” We all have within us beautiful gifts and talents. Two of my beautiful gifts are intuition and the ability to make people feel comfortable. What are your special gifts?
Yesterday, I had an opportunity to observe myself just being myself and connecting with people. I attended three different meetings and realized how alive I feel when I interact with others. During the meetings I sat back and noticed how passionate people felt and how willing they were to commit their time and energy to work together as a team. (This does not happen that often!)
As I drove home, I thought about how lucky we are to run businesses that are vehicles for our creativity and passion. When I worked for the State, we were pigeon- holed into job slots with very specific protocols and guidelines for getting things done. As business owners, we can try new strategies, create new projects and work with different people all the time!
Now, take a break and uncover some of the wonders you seek within yourself by completing the brief exercise below:
- Think about the different opportunities your business has been creating.
- Write them down.
- Think about different ways to celebrate your businesses’ greatness. Some ideas:
- send flowers to your company
- buy your business a gift
- meditate on what you are accomplishing
Expressing our gratitude and living in the success of our businesses will empower us to continue reaching our dreams. Through these dreams we create a better world for ourselves and others.
