15 Reasons You’re Probably Amazing Though You Don’t Know It

15 Reasons You’re Probably Amazing Though You Don’t Know It

Through difficulties and struggles we find direction and purpose. Sometimes making necessary sacrifices to keep going may seem daunting and impossible. Importantly, we find beauty in ourselves and through our tribulations should know that we are always amazing — and that no one has the right to take this splendid quality from us.

“Those who have courage and faith shall never perish in misery” ― Anne Frank

1. You can tolerate others despite their faults

Even when you are taken for granted and inflicted with scorn you can still find reason to smile and give an individual or a group of people a second chance. You are not stiff and see the beauty of the world in the sunrise rather than the sunset.

2. You can wait for your turn

You are not always in haste or in a hurry; rather, you understand the value of time and patience. At the end of the day you understand everything will turn out in your favor.

3. You are empathetic

You can relate with others who are going through difficult situations. You understand their tribulations and in you there is a desire to help or to alleviate their pain.

4. You do not seek perfection

You do not seek perfection from yourself or from others. You know that this is practically not possible and you can learn to live life this way and stop acting too seriously. Thus you are more relaxed and live with fewer regrets.

5. You can take risks

You can take a chance and attempt another kind and purposeful act. You do not give up hope easily as you are able to show grit, determination, and resilience in the face of obstacles and defiance.

6. You do not compare yourself with others

Making comparisons and trying to be what you are not doesn’t help your self esteem. This behavior bruises it. You understand this and find reasons not to be jealous or envious of others.

7. You are grateful

You can appreciate others and say “thank you.” You are not afraid or unable to show appreciation or express gratitude. Somehow you are healed when you do this.

8. You are willing to help others

You are selfless and you find joy in offering your time and energy. You understand purpose is in contribution rather than setting boundaries.

9. You live with no regrets

You will make mistakes and others will also. You’ve come to terms with the fact that you cannot change the past. There is purpose and peace in letting go of the hurt that comes from past events.

10. You are self-aware

You know your limitations. You also know what you can take and what you cannot take. Beyond this you do not stretch yourself, rather you can embrace yourself and work positively within your abilities.

11. You can deal with pain

Just as there are joys and fun moments, there are struggles you have to put up with. Through these struggles you can fight and win. You do not let pain define you, rather you define pain.

12. You can listen

Sometimes what others need from you is for you to listen, for you to be attentive and offer them support. You are approachable and always ready to listen.

13. You are the light in darkness

You are rare and unique and something worth keeping. You offer this light and illumination when everything turns sour or negative. You do not keep the light or store it. You shine it.

14. You are positive

You understand that whatever has gone wrong today can be made better tomorrow. You do not dwell in negativity or swim in your misfortunes rather you are optimistic and you treat every day with the amazing potential it has to offer you.

15. You enjoy life

You smile and you are interesting to be with. You enjoy life as your joys are in the simple things and sharing them with others.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
