What is Your Biggest Strength?

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."

Business Tip:
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.

  1. Naomi,
    I enjoy readi.g your weekly blog. I have missed our weekly calls and this is a great way to at least feel connected again. I will miss the meeting at the end of the month but I do have several downline who plan to attend.

  2. Naomi,
    I thoroughly enjoy reading your Tuesday posts- there is a TON of Wisdom in a tiny space :) You give me alot of food for thought! Love it !

  3. Hello Naomi~
    Leaving some goals for the year. One after finally finishing my taxes, one of my goals is to try and keep up with it more regularly so it doesn't take me so long to find everything. The second one is to try and use my business in a way that compliments what God is calling me to do, which will hopefully benefit me all around.
    Hope you have a great week and see you Saturday!

  4. Hi, Naomi
    Great artwork and inspiration!
    One of my goals for this year is to de-clutter and simplify; this means scheduling time for this business, obligations, and fun. I want to be more deliberate in my choices where I'm investing my time.

  5. My goal for this year is to get enough ladies signed up to my monthly club so I can offer them hostess rewards; I only need 2 more!
