Sweet Spot “Spotters”- The Challenge (Wk 15)

I went through a time in my life where I was fRusTrAteD in almost every aspect of my life.  Things just didn’t seem to be going well for me.  I felt mediocre, or worse, like a failure.  That is when I remembered a couple of compliments I had been given years earlier by two separate individuals.  They both said the same thing, “Robynn is the NiCeSt person I know.”  I remember being floored that two people who didn’t even know each other and didn’t live in the same city said the same exact thing.

My point in sharing that story is not to say I’m the nicest person around because it turns out that I know fRiEndLier aNd NicEr people than I am and I try to emulate these people.  Instead my purpose in sharing this story is to show how these people had seen my gifting, my tAleNt which is being fRieNdLy and enCouRagiNg to others.  That is my StrEngTh.

When I thought back to these comments the LigHtBuLb went off!!  I wasn’t operating in my GIFT, instead I was trying to be someone else.  I was trying to emulate people who have strengths in the areas of my weaknesses and when I did I failed.

What gifts and talents do others see in you?  Maybe it’s not even something that you have ever considered being a gift or a talent.  Maybe you have blown off CoMpliMenTs thinking that people are “just saying that”, “don’t really mean it”, or “are just trying to be nice” .  It may be time to take their compliments to heart.  Could it be that they are pointing you to your “SwEeT sPoT” without you even knowing it?

If You Feel It Say It

How often have you thought of something NiCe about someone but didn’t tell them?  Maybe you ran into an old friend and you thought how GrEaT they looked, but failed to mention it…or perhaps someone said something nice about your spouse but you didn’t take the time to pass the CoMpLiMenT on to your loved one.

Many times we don’t stop to share a GOOD WORD because there wasn’t that right “break” in the conversation to bring it up, or maybe we fear the situation could get awkward.

The thing you have to remember is how GREAT you feel when someone says something nice about YOU!  Doesn’t that just make your day?  If a customer emails me saying how much they LOVE their blocks or a person mentions my new outfit, I have a JuMp in my step the rest of the day!  How would you like to have that same effect on someone else?  If you feel it, say it!  Don’t let another opportunity pass you by!
