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.

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.

7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

What do I want to do with my life? It’s a question all of us think about at one point or another.

For some, the answer comes easily. For others, it takes a lifetime to figure out.

It’s easy to just go through the motions and continue to do what’s comfortable and familiar. But for those of you who seek fulfillment, who want to do more, these questions will help you paint a clearer picture of what you want to do with your life.

1. What are the things I’m most passionate about?

The first step to living a more fulfilling life is to think about the things that you’re passionate about.

What do you love? What fulfills you? What “work” do you do that doesn’t feel like work? Maybe you enjoy writing, maybe you love working with animals or maybe you have a knack for photography.

The point is, figure out what you love doing, then do more of it.

2. What are my greatest accomplishments in life so far?

Think about your past experiences and the things in your life you’re most proud of.

How did those accomplishments make you feel? Pretty darn good, right? So why not try and emulate those experiences and feelings?

If you ran a marathon once and loved the feeling you had afterwards, start training for another one. If your child grew up to be a star athlete or musician because of your teachings, then be a coach or mentor for other kids.

Continue to do the things that have been most fulfilling for you.

3. If my life had absolutely no limits, what would I choose to have and what would I choose to do?

Here’s a cool exercise: Think about what you would do if you had no limits.

If you had all the money and time in the world, where would you go? What would you do? Who would you spend time with?

These answers can help you figure out what you want to do with your life. It doesn’t mean you need millions of dollars to be happy though.

What it does mean is answering these questions will help you set goals to reach certain milestones and create a path toward happiness and fulfillment. Which leads to our next question …

4. What are my goals in life?

Goals are a necessary component to set you up for a happy future. So answer these questions:

Once you figure out the answers to each of these, you’ll have a much better idea of what you should do with your life.

5. Whom do I admire most in the world?

Following the path of successful people can set you up for success.

Think about the people you respect and admire most. What are their best qualities? Why do you respect them? What can you learn from them?

You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.[1] So don’t waste your time with people who hold you back from achieving your dreams.

Spend more time with happy, successful, optimistic people and you’ll become one of them.

6. What do I not like to do?

An important part of figuring out what you want to do with your life is honestly assessing what you don’t want to do.

What are the things you despise? What bugs you the most about your current job?

Maybe you hate meetings even though you sit through 6 hours of them every day. If that’s the case, find a job where you can work more independently.

The point is, if you want something to change in your life, you need to take action. Which leads to our final question …

7. How hard am I willing to work to get what I want?

Great accomplishments never come easy. If you want to do great things with your life, you’re going to have to make a great effort. That will probably mean putting in more hours the average person, getting outside your comfort zone and learning as much as you can to achieve as much as you can.

But here’s the cool part: it’s often the journey that is the most fulfilling part. It’s during these seemingly small, insignificant moments that you’ll often find that “aha” moments that helps you answer the question,

“What do I want to do with my life?”

So take the first step toward improving your life. You won’t regret it.
