Last week I wrote about my biggest weakness. It got me thinking about the flip side of that. I found this inspirational article that I'd like to share with you.
"Recently, while chatting with a friend, I noticed a paradox – we gladly forgive others their mistakes, but beat ourselves up for our own. My friend was telling me about being unable to learn programming and having to look for people, who could help her to manage her website. From my point of view it was not a big deal. Not everyone is born to be a programmer. But to her it was the end of the world. She continued repeating how “stupid” she was for not understanding a simple html code. However, when I mentioned that I am not a wizard at programming either, she instantly found several examples to demonstrate to me that I am better than I think I am!
This got me thinking – What if instead of being our worst critic, we become our own best cheerleader? What if we learn to be more tolerant of our shortcomings and acknowledge our strengths? Let us take a moment to practice self-appreciation, leaving forced modesty aside!
Take time to think “What is your biggest strength?” and then write down your answer in the comment section below for everyone to see!
Start with “I am…” – be daring!
For example, “I am intelligent”, “I am very determined”, “ I am indispensible, when it comes to handling stressful situations at work”, “I am great at creating relationships with people”.
Learn to compliment yourself as you so often compliment others."
Be sure that all of the stamp sets you are using in your gatherings and workshops are orderable for your customers. An easy way to do this is to go through any items you are unsure of and use the Product Search function in the Order Entry system or you can create an order and put in many items at a time.
