10 Things That People Love About You

10 Things That People Love About You

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.

10 Ways To Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone And Enjoy Taking Risks

10 Ways To Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone And Enjoy Taking Risks

The ability to take risks by stepping outside your comfort zone is the primary way by which we grow. But we are often afraid to take that first step.

In truth, comfort zones are not really about comfort, they are about fear. Break the chains of fear to get outside. Once you do, you will learn to enjoy the process of taking risks and growing in the process.

Here are 10 ways to help you step out of your comfort zone and get closer to success:

1. Become aware of what’s outside of your comfort zone

What are the things that you believe are worth doing but are afraid of doing yourself because of the potential for disappointment or failure?

Draw a circle and write those things down outside the circle. This process will not only allow you to clearly identify your discomforts, but your comforts. Write identified comforts inside the circle.

2. Become clear about what you are aiming to overcome

Take the list of discomforts and go deeper. Remember, the primary emotion you are trying to overcome is fear.

How does this fear apply uniquely to each situation? Be very specific.

Are you afraid of walking up to people and introducing yourself in social situations? Why? Is it because you are insecure about the sound of your voice? Are you insecure about your looks?

Or, are you afraid of being ignored?

3. Get comfortable with discomfort

One way to get outside of your comfort zone is to literally expand it. Make it a goal to avoid running away from discomfort.

Let’s stay with the theme of meeting people in social settings. If you start feeling a little panicked when talking to someone you’ve just met, try to stay with it a little longer than you normally would before retreating to comfort. If you stay long enough and practice often enough, it will start to become less uncomfortable.

4. See failure as a teacher

Many of us are so afraid of failure that we would rather do nothing than take a shot at our dreams.

Begin to treat failure as a teacher. What did you learn from the experience? How can you take that lesson to your next adventure to increase your chance of success?

Many highly successful people failed plenty of times before they succeeded. Here’re some examples:

5. Take baby steps

Don’t try to jump outside your comfort zone, you will likely become overwhelmed and jump right back in.

Take small steps toward the fear you are trying to overcome. If you want to do public speaking, start by taking every opportunity to speak to small groups of people. You can even practice with family and friends.

Take a look at this article on how you can start taking baby steps:

6. Hang out with risk takers

There is no substitute for this step. If you want to become better at something, you must start hanging out with the people who are doing what you want to do and start emulating them. (Here’re 8 Reasons Why Risk Takers Are More Likely To Be Successful).

Almost inevitably, their influence will start have an effect on your behavior.

7. Be honest with yourself when you are trying to make excuses

Don’t say “Oh, I just don’t have the time for this right now.” Instead, be honest and say “I am afraid to do this.”

Don’t make excuses, just be honest. You will be in a better place to confront what is truly bothering you and increase your chance of moving forward.

8. Identify how stepping out will benefit you

What will the ability to engage in public speaking do for your personal and professional growth? Keep these potential benefits in mind as motivations to push through fear.

9. Don’t take yourself too seriously

Learn to laugh at yourself when you make mistakes. Risk taking will inevitably involve failure and setbacks that will sometimes make you look foolish to others. Be happy to roll with the punches when others poke fun.

10. Focus on the fun

Enjoy the process of stepping outside your safe boundaries. Enjoy the fun of discovering things about yourself that you may not have been aware of previously.
