You are an amazing, incredible, awesome person just the way you are. Never forget that. Sometimes we don’t feel awesome or great and we struggle stepping into it. I have four strategies that will help you step into your awesomeness so that you can go after your goals and chase your dreams!
The first strategy I have is to count your blessings. You don’t physically need to number them or reach a certain number, just think of them. Then after you think of them, write them down. When you write them down you have a better and more meaningful connection connection with them. Writing them on paper with a pencil or pen is the best way to go about it. They can be huge, they can be tiny, it doesn’t matter the size but think of them and write them down.
The second step ties into the first one, and it is look for the positives. Look at the amazing things around you happening in life. It could be in someones actions like a young person helping an elderly person put groceries in his car. It could be from the beautiful day outside and the sun shining down. Once you start looking for positives you will start seeing them more and more over time. You won’t even need to focus on looking, they will come naturally. It’s the same way with the first strategy. Maybe at first you will only have one or two blessings to write down, but eventually you’ll start realizing more and more of them. It might be hard at first to look for the positives but keep trying and eventually you’ll see more and more. I also challenge you to find different ones each day. You can still recognize the same ones from the day before but looking for new things will help you expand your awareness of the world.
My third strategy is seeing what you did well. What are your successes? This is a tricky one because your ego will want to get involved, and we need to let go of our egos. I have struggled with my ego for a long time, and I still struggle with it sometimes. I used to have a huge ego and thought I was a superstar, but eventually it came crashing down and I felt empty. If we can put our ego in check and make sure we are honest with ourselves, that won’t happen. That doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate our successes and recognize the things we did well! Think about where you first started and where you are now, chances are you have improved and grown. See what you’ve learned and how you’ve grown. Think about how you can teach others and help them to grow. Enjoy and savor your successes but don’t let them go to your head.
The final step I have is to share your awesomeness! You are amazing just as you are, you are a light in this world. Why would you want to keep your life hidden? Share it with the world! Do random acts of kindness for people, hold the door for someone, it could even be as simple as a smile. You never know what somebody else is going through, sometimes even a simple smile can make somebody’s day. Together we can change the world and make it a more positive place to live. That’s pretty awesome. Some people might not like all of the positive energy you’re sharing, they may tease you for it. That will be dwarfed by all of the other positive energy you receive back from the world. The more you give, the more you get. So share your light and your positive energy with the world!
