What Is The Highest and Best Use of YOU?

(This post is #7 in a series of 20 Questions to Self that I recently posted on this blog.)

I’d like to encourage you to ask and answer these questions, too.  The insights you discover will inspire you.

Q:  What is my highest good?

A:  Seriously, how am I supposed to know the answer to that one?

When I think about good, I think about “What is the highest expression of who I am as a person?”

Each of us are gifted with unique talents and abilities, and at some stage of our lives, we begin to seek to more fully express those gifts.  Some people are connected to the awareness of their gifts early on, and others might go through the majority of their life without ever realizing how truly gifted they are.giftbox

In my role as a coach, one of my greatest joys comes from helping a client recognize and grow to believe in their gift.

I’d say that my highest good is transforming lives through inspirational and motivational stories.

My mentor Les Brown once told me, “Sometimes you’ve got to believe in someone else’s belief in you, until your belief kicks in.” (TWEET THIS)

In my life, I’ve discovered that most of us could use a lot more encouragement than we’d ever admit.

So what is that talent or thing that you used to be really good at, that you’ve shelved or allowed to go dormant?

Maybe you have a knack for art or photography?  Or perhaps you have the ability to make people laugh?  Maybe you have the gift of patience and you are an excellent teacher?

Whatever it might be I’d like to encourage you to spend some time reflecting on it and see if there might be a way for you to call it forward into your life.  It’s never to late, unless you’re dead.

And since you’re reading this, my guess is you haven’t been dead for very long.
