accepting your strengths

“Accepting your strengths” sounds like a straightforward thing to do, right? Who doesn’t like them?

Well, maybe you would like to explore other skills that you have, maybe you don’t want to rely on them too much, maybe you don’t think they’ll help.

Until they do. Or at least that was my experience. I recently realized that one of my greatest strengths is willpower.

I’ve known it for a long time, but I didn’t really rely on it as I do now. Why? Furthermore, I’d say mostly that I find it hard to have sustained willpower over the course of many days.

But guess what? It helps my life immensely, so even if I feel “will-deprived”, trying and keeping up makes a difference. 

Embrace yourself, because if you rely on the good things you do, the others will become easier.
