When I was a little girl, my Mom used to tell me that I was “remarkable” and it made me feel very special. Then I heard her say the same thing to my school friends, my sisters, and so on. When I called her on it, she explained that in her world, every child was remarkable, every one of us had something beyond the usual, that we were all extraordinary human beings and that in our own special way, we stood tall and proud.
Those words had a big impact on me. Eventually, I realized that to her “everyone” was remarkable, and I was so moved by her perception which gave her a lot of empathy for others, I decided to join her in that particular set of beliefs.
Once I started to see everyone as “remarkable” in their own rights, I began to realize how amazing people are. No matter who you are, where you come from and what you do, you are simply and amazingly, “remarkable.”
So, if you don’t know how beautifully remarkable you are,
¨ Are you there for a friend when he needs you?
¨ Do you listen more than you talk?
¨ Do you feel people’s pains and offer possible solutions?
¨ You can say NO and walk away from it all, or really be a friend to your friend in time of need.
¨ You could do all the talking and not care or simply choose the alternative.
¨ You could choose to keep quiet and offer nothing or you can really listen from your heart and mind and come up with outstanding solutions.
POINTS TO PONDER:
¨ Do you see now YOUR image as it evolves?
¨ Are you happy and pleased with what you see?
¨ Is your heart bigger than your ego?
¨ Are you standing tall and proud?
¨ Ask a trusted advisor or confidant how they see you.
¨ Ask for feedback on your strongest points.
¨ Ask the same question of your inner and higher self.
¨ Make a list of the special things that make you stand out from the rest.
¨ Create a mini-plan on how to use your strengths, so that you can be more open-minded and relentless in your pursuit of excellence.
¨ Include in your mini-plan how to master the best of you, so that it can always be your constant companion and show-up when you most need it.
¨ Relish in your greatness, brilliance, and your unique way of being remarkable and go after mastering your own special brand of what makes you uniquely YOU!
