”Let’s face it you are amazing! There is no one else in the world like you. It’s almost too hard to believe, but it’s true. You are one-of-a-kind. You have a gift that you were brought into this world to deliver. No one else can do it but you.” – Will Craig.

The fact is that we are all blessed with a unique combination of talents that make us special. All we have to do is to own our excellence. That is the catch! In order to fully live to your potential, you must acknowledge your greatness and all the reasons you are special.

Many of us are so busy trying to fix our weaknesses, that we completely forget about nurturing our talents. And we are not just doing it to ourselves, we are also doing it to other people. In organizations and in marriages for example, we focus on trying to fix people rather than identifying what their talents are and supporting and celebrating their excellence.

Don’t get me wrong… I’m not saying that you should ignore your weaknesses. That wouldn’t be realistic. In a job situation, it might get you fired and in a marriage situation it might get you divorced. But does it make sense to actively WORK on improving them? Wouldn’t it be better to learn how to manage your weaknesses and rather spend most of your time on nurturing and developing the things that you are naturally good at?

I belief that most of the really successful and happy people in the world are the ones that focus on their own talents and the talents of others. They learn how to identify and surround themselves with people who are strong in the areas where they are not so strong. They learn and use tools that help them to manage their “weaknesses”, instead of trying to fix it.

In 2011, I want to encourage you to discover your talents, learn to nurture them and find ways to manage your weaknesses. I bet you will live a much more relaxed, powerful and happy life.

What are you waiting for? Move forward towards a more fulfilling life!

With love and warm wishes,
