Self-Esteem – Acknowledge Your Abilities to Boost Your Self Image
Time to Take Personal Inventory of Your Talents & Abilities and Boost Your Self-Image!
Self-esteem, regardless of how high or how low, is a powerful driving force in your life. It can hold you back and prevent you from being all that God intends you to be, or it can boldly drive you to a life of success.
Which just goes to show; you should give great importance to building up your confidence and self-esteem.
One way to do this is to acknowledge your strengths & abilities. Take inventory of what you are good at. We’ve all been given special gifts and talents. Some are more obvious than others.
Those hidden abilities may be discovered by asking ourselves what it is we are passionate about. What is it we desire to do and explore in life? What have we always wanted to do but keep putting off? Maybe learn to play an instrument, write a book, or paint.
“Most of us die with the great secret, with the sealed message which the Creator put in our hands at birth, still unread, because we have never learned how to open or how to read it.”
– Orison Swett Marden
As you acknowledge those things you are personally good at in life, you direct your focus on your positive qualities. Most of us waste way too much time taking inventory of our inabilities. Spend some time acknowledging the gifts and talents you have to offer this world.
We can’t excel in everything, but we can excel in some things. Start cultivating those abilities and talents you are passionate about. You’ll be empowered and see your self-esteem increase as you find ways to build on your strengths.
The simple fact of the matter is; once you discover and tap into your untapped assets, you’ll be able to provide an incalculable service to humanity. You will think more highly of yourself, and you will have more respect and self-confidence in your abilities. You will believe more in yourself. You will stand higher in your own estimate in every way and boost your self-esteem.
May you cultivate your God given talents and experience a life of growing prosperity!
