Being the Best You That You Can Be

by Marie Miguel

We all have something we are good at. However, some of us just have not figured out what that is yet. It may be something that you have always wanted to do or something that you never knew you could do. It does not have to be something that will make you rich quick, or ever.

For example, when I started writing, I wrote for myself in my spare time. I did not get paid for it. People do not get paid for writing on their blog. That is not how it works. But, by doing what I loved, I discovered how good I was at it and that I could turn it into a career if I did it right. If not, that is okay because I still love what I do and I can make money other ways. Luckily for me, I can write every day and get paid well for it, but I do it because I love it. If I did not love what I do, I probably would not be as good at it.

What Do You Want to Do?

So, what are you good at? What do you love? Are you doing what you love to do? Going to the same job day after day to do the same thing over and over just does not scream success to me. If you are just going to work to get a paycheck, chances are pretty good that you would rather be doing something else. So, go do it! Life is short! Be what you want to be now before it is too late!

Get Some Feedback

If you are not sure what you are good at and you have a lot of things that you love to do, ask the people who know you the best. Your friends and family can probably tell you more about yourself than you can. Ask them what they think you are good at. You may find out that it is something that you would never have thought of on your own. You know on those cartoons where the character has that lightbulb go on above their head? When you get that moment, you will know. That is what you should be doing.

Think Positive

Sometimes, your psyche gets in your way. You may be the one standing on your path to success. Being afraid to do something new or thinking you may not be good enough can set you up to fail. You have to think positive and surround yourself with positive people. Do not let others bring you down. Some people may try to tell you that you should not do what you love because you need to be like the "rest of the world" and get to work.

Make Sure You Are Ready

You may find that you are just too scared to try something new just yet. Maybe you need to talk to someone about your self-esteem before you begin a new venture. No matter how much you love what you do, if you are not ready, you may not be as successful as you want and this could make you give up and never want to try again. Try talking to a counselor or therapist about your ideas and they can help you build up your self-confidence. Therapy is not just for depression and anxiety.
