Every single one of us is born with unique and invaluable gifts that only we can share with the world. The catch: It’s up to us whether we want to share them or not.
Why Do Some People Not Share Themselves with the World?
An easy question to ask is why wouldn’t someone share their authentic self with the world? Well, to be honest it’s easier said than done. To fully share yourself with the world takes a whole lot of courage. It’s making yourself more vulnerable than you probably have ever been. It’s exposing you – the great and amazing and perhaps the not as amazing as well.
Why share Ourselves with the World?
So why should we share ourselves with the world? Well, for starters there is only one us and if we don’t share ourselves with the world, the world simply lives with a hole in it. The place where we should be filling with our unique talents, gifts and self. Once we figure out what these talents and gifts are, hey, let the party begin!
Living a life as your authentic self, with purpose, is when things really get exciting. And the good news it’s available to everyone. The trickiest part is having the courage to be you, to make yourself vulnerable enough to be yourself in every way. Now that is truly living!
How do you know what your Unique Talents and Gifts Are?
Much more to come on this in a future blog article, but for now I think it’s suffice to say do what feels natural to you. It may not feel totally comfortable to you at first, but it should feel natural to you. And the more that you do it the more comfortable you will feel being a bit vulnerable. In short, being you!
A few teasers for what is to come on how to find out what your unique gifts and talents are is to imagine you are an alien floating around yourself. What do you see? And, what does this person do? What resources and opportunities do they have available to them?
Another way to discover more within yourself is to simply do something, to take that first step to what might be your dream. You don’t have to know exactly where it is going to take you, you just need to start with one thing that feels right and go from there.
A third and final “teaser,” is to simply do the best you can wherever you are at. You never know who is watching or what moment might be the moment the opportunity comes knocking.
Now these are just a few brief ways to find out who your unique self is – more to come on that next week! Until then stay tuned and practice being your awesome self. Push yourself past any comfort zones and put yourself clear into the “you” zone!
Do you find it hard to be you at all times? Are there times you put on personas to make moments more comfortable? Have you discovered your unique talents or shall you be staying tuned next week for tips on finding them?

The start of 2022, did not start out as planned, having caught COVID in early January. Not thinking I was immune and couldn’t catch it, I knew it was a possibility. I was very careful to follow the rules, keep my distance, wear my mask and I was vaccinated. Again, I know vaccination is by […]
