As one of my monthly goals is to meditate every day I have signed up for a free meditation challenge with Oprah and Deepak. This 21-day challenge focuses on manifestations of success. Feel free to follow along, try it yourself and/or comment below.
Success Finds Its Own Path
Q1) You are unique in the world, and your success is also unique. Write down your special talents, gifts, and perspectives that will make your success in the world unique.
This one is hard for me. I hate talking about myself, it just feels very egocentric and comes off as arrogant to me. But I guess a special talent or gift I have is that I am very perceptive. I can tell how a person feels by just watching them and why they might feel that way by listening to their conversation. I don’t need anyone to say anything to me or even notice I’m there and I’ll know all about them. It’s creepy and kind of weird but I can do it and it has come in handy when working with others.
Q2) Learning how you fit in and relate to others is part of your uniqueness. It is how you gain support from others for your success and how you contribute to the success of others. List some of the ways you share yourself and enrich the lives of those around you with your talents, your conversation, or, simply, your presence.
I share myself by being very open. At first, I am very shy but once I get to know someone I have no problem opening up to people and sharing who I am and what my life is like. I am honest about the person I am, all my good sides and my bad. I am very okay with who I am and like myself. I think with my honesty in this area that people around me feel like they can do the same. They can be just as open and honest about themselves and their lives which can enrich them.
Another is that I’m not big on judging people. As long as you aren’t hurting anyone I’m pretty much fine with a person. And I think that I have shown other people in my life that judging people really just stops you from seeing the real person you are judging.
Q3) Consider how you are enriched and enlarged by those around you as well. List the ways your social network supports your uniqueness and your success.
Most of my support network encourages me and my success by going out of their way to support me. Any blog post I publish they read, and video I post they watch, any idea I come up with they give me honest advice. They don’t judge me for wanting to do out of the box things and they except that I am just different and do things differently. Their support is a large part of why I am successful.
Q4) Use this space to reflect further on your experience today.
Today really made me appreciate my friends and family and their support for me. I hope that I enrich their lives as much as they do mine.
