Have you ever felt like you couldn’t handle one more thing? I feel like that sometimes. It’s human. It’s important to remember that those feelings are temporary. Take a deep breath and remember that this too shall pass. It can feel exhausting and hopeless when you are overwhelmed. Remember that you are actually stronger than you think.
We all have strengths. Make sure that you celebrate them. Own that you are good at certain things. Sometimes it’s easier for other people to see your strengths. I would bet if you ask your best friend to list five or 10 things that you are great at they would be able to do it quickly.
Try that out with a friend or colleague. You may be surprised that you are known for bringing certain strengths to the table. Thank those friends and colleagues for the feedback. Take a look at that list and realize you are stronger than you think.
Now – make your own list. Where do you excel? A strength is something that you are good at. It feels as natural to you as breathing. Self-confidence and strength are not the same as being conceited or a braggart.
To maintain a positive attitude it is important to acknowledge our own value. Acknowledge that we are unique. Acknowledge your strengths.
Once you’ve got that going – – start sharing with others the strength you see in them.
We are stronger together.
