Serving Leaders, How Will You Bring Your Gifts In 2018?

What gifts can you provide along the path in 2018?What gifts can you provide along the path in 2018?

Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year! I hope you’re enjoying your holidays with families and friends. For many of you, 2017 has been an incredible year for growth and personal development. Many of you have accomplished things that you couldn’t have imagined at the beginning of the year. Your unique gifts from the heart have provided many people with inspiration and success.

For others, it has been a year of frustration and challenges. You have had to learn how to do things differently. It’s not always been your choice. You may be getting by on a limited budget. Having health scares with yourself or family and friends. For some people, you’ve lost a loved one. You have had little time left to share your gifts with the world. Not that you were in the mood to give gifts.

No matter where you are, I hope to inspire you this Christmas season. I wasn’t sure what to give you. It’s hard to decide to give when you have so many different readers in so many different situations. What size do you wear? Is this the right color, does it come in red?

I decided the best gifts come from the heart. I want to partner with you to bring your gifts to the world in 2018. Can you reach your greatest potential in the coming year? I might suggest your path is the goal.

I’ve found the best place to start is where you are. Then add a gift that energizes, empowers, and engages! I hope today’s blog helps you on your journey. I want to help you engage your strengths and gifts in 2018! I want to provide you a bridge to your future!

I have several questions that, if you take time to answer, take your life to the next level. They increase your self-awareness and knowledge about why you are where you are.

This life transforming process has worked for everyone who is willing to explore these questions more deeply. As Socrates said, “The life which is unexamined is not worth living.” Are you ready to go on this journey together? Let’s get started!

What is your highest vision of yourself? What were you put here to do? More accurately, who can only you be? It’s easy to get so caught up in doing you miss who you are becoming.  Who would the Divine say you are? Are you serving the greatest good?

Who must you become to express your unique gifts, strengths and life experiences? Are you engaging who you are in what you do? Who would you be if you knew you couldn’t fail? What would empower you to become who your really are?

What is holding you back? I could ask who is holding you back. Most people let old versions of themselves hold them back from becoming all they could become. How do you see yourself today?  What self limiting beliefs do you have? How will you overcome them to use your gifts?

Most people never empower themselves to reach their greatest potential. They fail to let go of who they think they are to become who they could be. What beliefs do you still hold onto that limit you from the life of your dreams?

In whom do you invest your life? Is your peer group supporting your aspirations with inspiration? What or who must you let go of to achieve your greatest potential?  Have your gifts evolved over the years? Which strengths have you cultivated? What gifts define how you see yourself today?

What must you embrace to obtain your personal freedom?  What must you embrace to take your life to the next level? What price will it cost if you choose to reach your greatest potential? What have you invested your life in that has never expressed itself more fully.

Your gifts need nurturing throughout your life. They were never meant to be put on shelf and never completely developed. What do you change starting today?

Many people have the same gifts they were given early in their life. They were exceptional for their age, but then they never grew. Who can help you accept your greater gifts? Are your ready to accept their help in developing your gifts?

What do you need to know to begin growing again? Are you willing to invest your time to embrace who you are and all you can become? Who can help you engage your strengths and gifts? What life experiences have transformed your life?  Can we seek to find a better answer to our deepest questions? What resources do we need to cultivate our highest potential?

As you celebrate the holidays this year, take time between the office parties, shopping, and family gatherings to get to know yourself just a little better. Consider how you might empower the people in your life to be all they can be. I discovered empowering and serving others is the greatest gift for both the giver and receiver.

If you want to bring your unique gifts to the world in 2018, you might want to consider bringing who you are bringing to the world. It’s not what you do. Doing can only take you so far. Being helps you bridge the gap to your greatest potential.  The world would be a much better place if we all showed up as who we are.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
