As a life coach, I am honored to hear these words quite often from my clients. I remind them of who they really are, what makes them special and unique and what strengths they have.
What makes me sad, is that so many are surprised by what I tell them I see. Some insist that that is who they use to be but no longer are. Others tell me that they wish they were what I said but it is impossible. Then there are those few, who tell me thank you for noticing.
When did we stop seeing our personal inner beauty, strength, character and what makes us special and unique?
When we start comparing our selves to others or using others for a measure of our self worth, we begin to diminish our inner light. Why would we want to be anything other than who we are, who we were meant to be and who we can be at our best?
What makes you great is inside of you. It is how you show up not only for yourself but for others in the world. Your perspective, choices and opinions matter. You matter.
A person is at their most beautiful self when they are confident in who they are. It springs out of their eyes when they share what they are passionate about and how big they can love.
My challenge to you is to look in the mirror and verbally, out loud, remind yourself of who you really are. You are in there, it is time to shine and come out!
