W.I.N. Wednesday: Lessons From Life's Most Powerful Question - Are you undervalued?
"Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are."
Malcolm S. Forbes
Is your tendency is to talk about what you are not good at rather than talk about the areas of your life where you excel. Are you quick to tell people about your weaknesses instead of focusing on your strengths? Do you recount stories of your failures and mistakes without talking about the lessons learned and all the ways you have grown as a result of those experiences? I see and hear this theme play out in people's lives all the time and often catch myself doing it.
We often use humility as a form of justification for this focus. However, as the authors of the book Whale Done: The Power of Positive Relationships remind us "Attention is like sunshine to humans. What we give our attention to, grows. What we ignore, withers."
What's Important Now? - Give your attention to what you are. Let the sun shine on your strengths and talents. This will not only help you to grow and be more positive, it will set a shining example for your children and those around you.
