We all have sides to our personalities that can either help or hinder us in our success. Not just in business but in all areas of our lives that carry over into our work.
We can can focus on those negative areas and let them take over and define who we are, or we can grab hold of the positive attributes and run with them.
As human beings, we are all creatures of habit and habits are much harder to break than to form. If we have been allowing that negative side to rule our hearts and minds for much of our lives, it will not be an easy thing to refocus overnight. But we do need to break the habit!
If we are able to take an honest look at the characteristics that define our personality in general, we don't have to dig deep, they are usually right there and anyone who really knows or understands us well will probably be only too happy to confirm them for us.
We can then, upon reflection, find a way to use them to inform our future practice.
Time for change!
Find that quality in our personality that is unique to us alone and nurture that. Put your energy into forming new habits, changing the mindset to include that part in future decision making and goal setting.
Do not compare yourself to others as this is always going to make you feel like you fall short. Find that strength or skill that makes you the best at being you.
Use it in your business. Are you a great problem solver or a good mediator?
Maybe you enjoy organising or communicating.
There is always a way that you can use that skill, hone it to strengthen your business or work alongside others that have skills you can share.
Have a great weekend and be the best you that you can be!
