Are you using your strengths or your weaknesses ???
Start a list Identifying your strengths and weaknesses.
To implement the above process in your own life, you’re going to need to build your awareness of your strengths. Try starting with a list of strengths and weaknesses. Write them down in separate columns, and then draws some arrows from the strengths to the weaknesses where you think you could potentially apply a strength to a weakness. You don’t need to be 100% sure how you’re going to do it just yet. Go with your gut of what you think might be applicable.
For the weaknesses, focus on things that are actually getting in your way and that you have some motivation to change. For example, they could be related to negotiating, finances, relationships, or health behaviors.
The types of strengths that can be good are
being good at researching information
resourcefulness, persistence, conscientiousness
planning for and overcoming obstacles
finding workarounds for problems, decency / following the “do unto others” principle
ability to follow instructions, ability to synthesize information
being calm and emotionally, patience
We all have strengths and weaknesses. Being reminded of our weaknesses is unpleasant. Therefore, we learn to avoid tasks that require skills that we think of as weaknesses. This avoidance can cause problems and hold you back.
Know your strengths to be more effective and successful in life.
While you’re having your first cup of coffee, sit back and think of the things that you’re thankful for.
The aroma of the coffee;
That first sip of coffee;
The beautiful morning;
The beginning of a new day full of promise;
The quiet just before the day officially starts.
Grace Before Meals. Giving thanks before each meal recognizes all of the people whose hard work was necessary for you to have food on your table–everyone from the farmer who grew the food, and the person who cooked the meal.
It’s a moment to pause and be mindful, as well as feel blessed that you have all of the food and nourishment that you need.
Things You Take For Granted. Imagine losing some of the things that you take for granted, such as your home, your ability to see or hear, your ability to walk, or anything that currently gives you comfort. Then imagine getting each of these things back, one by one, and consider how grateful you would be for each and every one.
Obviously, things won’t always go your way. However, gratitude isn’t an emotion that is reserved for those moments when you get what you want. When things go wrong you can use the power of gratitude to release some of the negative emotions that you may be feeling due to the failure or setback that you just experienced.
After a negative event put things in perspective by remembering that every difficulty carries within it the seeds of an equal or greater benefit. When faced with adversity, ask yourself the following questions:
“What’s good about this?”
“What can I learn from this?”
“How can I benefit from this?”
“Is there something about this situation that I can be grateful for?”
LETS BE GRATEFUL TODAY! SEE WHATS THERE, INSTEAD OF WHAT ISNT!
Your Assignment is greater than things that you allow to waste your time. You don’t deserve to believe you need to have people that shatter you, to Feel Alive. You don’t deserve that kind of Broken Love. You deserve sad songs with Happy Endings, you deserve the Deepest Love, someone who will look at you and echo your name forever. Everyone wont be wiling to go where you want to go, don’t cheat your life because you’re afraid to leave people behind. Be with someone who makes you fall in love with God more everyday.
Illusions, wrongly perceived or interpreted by the senses, deceptive appearance or impression. A false idea or belief. You cant keep hanging onto who or what has already left or what’s gone, and you cant keep waiting on who or what, that was never on their or its way. Let go of all Illusions. Let go. Move forward with your life, move on. Its never to late to start over, surround yourself with people who lift you up to a higher standard of living in reality. Let go of all illusions in your life.
The Greatest Enemy of knowledge is not Ignorance, it is the illusion of Knowledge.
Your only Obligation in any Lifetime is to be True to Yourself.
All Human Unhappiness comes from not Facing Reality exactly as it is.
If the World was hungry????
WOULD WE HUNT OUR IGNORANCE & GATHER OUR COMPASSION?
WOULD WE BE SATISFIED BY THE SAME CUP?
WOULD WE BREAK BREAD INSTEAD OF BONES AND FEAST ON GRATITUDE?
WOULD WE EAT AT THE SAME TABLE?
