Hope you are well and had a very Happy Easter!
When I was studying to become a Health Coach, one of the tasks we were asked to do was to write down a list of things we liked about ourselves. Anything from our features, to our traits, habits and personalities. I, of course, began with ‘I don’t know’ but then once I got over my modesty, I realised there are quite a few things about myself that I like.
You see so many articles out there on ‘How to be a better version of yourself’ and for so long I was reading them and even writing my own posts on them! I read one the other day and whilst the tips were helpful, it reminded me of doing the assignment above.
We are all programmed in this day and age to want more, give more, succeed more and be more. But what if in the question of ‘am I good enough’ we realised that we are already pretty awesome?
For this weeks ‘5 Top Tips on a Tuesday’ I bring to you ‘5 signs that you are already pretty awesome’
You give a damn
With regards to the life you live, you give a big damn. Whether that be in your career, your relationships, world issues, banking, your hobbies or all of the above, you care. If you decide to commit to something, you give it your best shot. Sometimes we fail, sometimes we succeed but you know you did your best.
You know your own voice
Whatever you speak, write, message etc is your own. You own your own voice. You create your own opinions and you are not afraid to stand up for what you believe in.
You no longer seek perfection
We all want to change things about ourselves. Heck I am constantly striving to be a better writer and CrossFitter! But there is a big difference between trying to be better at something and seeking perfection. No one is perfect and realising and embracing this fact can be a real eye opener in life.
You are confident
Confidence is a tricky one. We can all show it, but not feel it and vice versa. Confidence often comes with age and knowing and trusting ones self a little more. But knowing your pretty awesome doesn’t mean having to be confident in everything you do, it just means you are confident in the choices you make. It may be the right or wrong choice, only time will tell, but it feels right at the time so roll with it!
You are fair and equal to all
Awesome people are fair. They make great bosses, colleagues, teachers and sportspeople. They know that everyone in this world, regardless of gender, race or social standing are equal. No one is better than the other, no opinion greater than another. Everyone matters.
I hope that you can all see a little bit, or a lot, of yourself in the above. Not quite there yet? Don’t worry, all of this is within you. You just need to allow it to shine!
Tell me something about yourself that makes you pretty awesome?
Do you find that you see more of the above within you as you age?
How are you with being confident?
