I am just coming off a spiritual retreat in Baltimore, a weekend with my honey in Philly and am now emailing you from Cleveland where I am speaking with Progressive Insurance about how to “Succeed from your Strengths!”
This topic made me think about my strengths – and wondering about yours. So often, people see me speak, or hear me on the radio and ask, “How do you do that? How can you speak to 500 people so easily??” I look at them and ask, “How do you do what you do so well?” We are often so caught up in what we aren’t that we forget to focus on who we are. The fact is that many of you are great with numbers and I am NOT – even though my mom is a mathematician! Some of you are incredible with direction – and I get LOST in my own neighborhood. You may have a gift with children, with art, with baking, that would totally amaze me and make me wonder, “How does she do that??”
That’s the beauty of individuality – we each have different strengths and talents. We each have collected distinct wisdom from our experiences. We each have a different purpose.
Your “job” is to know those strengths, hone those talents, and amp up your unique purpose to the world. So today, I taped this video for you from the airport as I’m getting ready to “amp up” my strengths in speaking this week. Amp up my energy, amp up my passion, amp up my purpose.
What strengths are you going to amp up today? How will you BRING IT this week? The world stands up and takes notice when you bring your best to it. I’ve seen this happen in my own life time and again. Just last week, media branding experts sent me a proposal to work with me because they see that I’m bringing my full passion to you. And this summer, I won a writing contest to have a chapter published in Christine Kloser’s anthology “Pebbles in the Pond Wave 3”, because I amped up my purpose through the contest entry I sent her. And as a bonus gift from G-d, 17 of my co-authors in the book were at the retreat with me last week and they graced my soul with their distinct strengths, beautiful souls and nourishing spirits.
I promise you, when you work from your strengths, amp them up and bring your full purpose to life, miracles unfold before your eyes. So I ask you, how are you going to amp it up this week? Email me – I can’t wait to see!
