Do you know that you were born for greatness? Are you aware that you have special gifts and talents that no one else on the planet has? I promise you that I’m not making this up. You were born with unique gifts intended to help you live out your greatness. Your gifts were given to you at birth. You didn’t have to ask for them. You didn’t learn them at school. They are yours and only belong to you.
So what’s holding you back from using your gifts and talents?
If you’re like most moms, you probably haven’t thought about your gifts lately. It’s not a common thought on your mind given all the other things you have to do. You might feel like you don’t have enough time to do anything outside of your ordinary routine.
It’s normal for mothers to subconsciously forget about their amazing talents and gifts when they’re hyper-focused on being everything for their children. Often this happens subconsciously, as the demands of everyday life encroach on your time and energy.
Moms typically start their days thinking about all they need to get done – what school projects are due that week, what they’re making for dinner and how the kids are getting home from practice. Days run into weeks. Weeks run into months and before you know it, years have gone by and you’ve totally lost sight of what makes YOU great.
So how can a mom with an active lifestyle reconnect with her gifts?
Once you decide that discovering your gifts is a priority you will find time to go through this process. Even the busiest mom can schedule this into her life by making a conscious effort.
If you have no idea where to start with discovering your gifts, you can start by asking yourself questions like:
• What am I really good at doing with little or no effort?
• Am I an awesome cook?
• Do I have a keen eye for fashion?
• Do my friends often come to me for advice?
• What was I really good at doing as a little girl?
I’m sure if you take time to think about this you’ll discover many things that you haven’t paid attention to before. These are your gifts and talents. Now it’s time for you to own them.
Embrace your gifts. If you haven’t been using what you were born with, I challenge you to start today. Before you know it you will have discovered your zone of genius and will be living in your greatness.
