It’s about time you stop putting yourself down! Each and every one of us was put on this earth to impart our wisdom to the world. We have so much to teach everyone we meet, directly and indirectly. You have value and you are valued.

What are 10 things that people love about you? We are pretty sure the following make it on to the list:

1. Your Courage

Think of all the hardships you’ve been through. How else do you think you got through the tough times? It certainly wasn’t because you got scared and buried your head in the sand.

And yes, it certainly wasn’t fun to, say, go through unemployment or even a family loss, but think of how others looked up to you when you braved the stormy seas. Whether you realize it or not, you probably encouraged many others to become more courageous, just like you.

Being courageous also means taking risks. Think that what you’ve done so far in life isn’t risky? Recall those times when you hopped on a plane to go on vacation to Thailand or other places where English isn’t the first language. Many people would be terrified to do something like that.

2. Your Energy

You work harder and give your time to those you love a lot. Don’t even try to dispute that because you know it’s true! You’ve got so much enthusiasm that people feel more energetic just by being around you. The way you talk, the way you walk, it’s just so electrifying!

3. Your Ability to Love

Your friends and family are around for a reason. You obviously bring a smile to their faces and value their time. The care and attention that you bring to each and every one of your relationships is one of the many reasons why people love you. Don’t believe it? Go through every single email your friends and family have written you. How many thank-yous do you notice? Better yet, do you have any handwritten cards or thank-you notes people have sent to you that you’ve kept? Obviously, the way you show love to others has made a bigger impact than you thought.

4. Your Passion

The way you dedicate yourself to your job, or even your hobbies, shows others the amount of passion you have. You are probably passionate about helping others because people love to be around you. People can’t help but admire the way you talk about the love of your life, the latest charity event you went to, or even the way you describe the oh-so-perfect photo you took of that sunrise last week.

5. Your Sense of Humor

Everybody loves a good laugh. Perhaps you are the life of the party, telling fresh and witty jokes at every turn. Or perhaps you like to tell embarrassing stories about yourself, when people hang on to your every word. That means you have a great sense of humor. People love people who don’t take themselves too seriously.

6. Your Creativity

People love problem solvers. You love to fix issues at your job: that’s creativity at work. Love painting and photography? People admire artists. So, who cares if it doesn’t make money? Keep doing what you’re doing, Picasso!

7. Your Positivity

Nobody knows how to put a positive spin on things like you do. Whereas many people concentrate on the problems at hand, you look towards coming up with solutions. While some people complain when they get a cold meal, you are thankful that you are able to eat at such a lovely restaurant. Go on Buddha, spread the love!

8. Your Looks

Hey, let’s get real—you’re a good-looking person. So why shouldn’t people stop and stare every once in a while? Heck, you might even be the sharpest dresser at work. Move over, GQ and Victoria’s Secret models.

9. Your Smile

As if you aren’t good-looking enough already, you’ve got a dazzling smile. Carry on being so awesome…

10. Your Listening Skills

People love to be heard. Surely there have been times where people have turned to you for advice or even a shoulder to cry on. Why do you think they keep coming back again and again?

Only a special person like you is able to master the skill of listening. You really take the time to look at them, be in the present moment, and pause before you answer.
