30 Day Challenge: Day 17

Confidence, swagger even.  I know you’ve got it.  Those areas of your life that are under control.  Perhaps you’re brilliant at your job or one of the best parents you know.  Maybe you put the other knitters to shame in your knitting circle or always wow the relatives with your holiday meals.  The point is you’re good at something, probably several things.  Everyone is.

So what can you take from those areas of your life to bring to this challenge?  Are you organized?  Do you execute tasks well?  Do you find determination goes a long way?

Make a list of your strengths (seriously go write ‘em down, I’ll still be here).  Now look at your challenge goals.  What do you have on that list that will help you get to your goal?  Are you using it?

We talked about perspective yesterday and shifting how you view what you’re doing.  Now think about how your talents can tip the scales to your favor.

So how are you doing today?  How is the challenge going?

    I’m totally using my strengths to meet my challenge…
    and ironically even using one of my ‘weaknesses’ (or rather one of my annoyances) too, because the weakness/annoyance is a driving point to make myself better/stronger/more determined
    (side note: the annoyance/weakness is a person–and find it motivating to use that very annoyance to exceed my challenge)
    I should’ve posted all that in my blog about today’s challenge at http://www.taraburner.com/health-wellness/day-17-of-revabs-push-up-challenge.php but didn’t…I’m waiting for awhile to release some big time truths so til then tidbits are all I let out! LOL
