I’m sure that you are exceptional at something. It could very well be more than one thing, but I will guarantee that there is at least one. On this topic, you are the expert that is a great resource for everyone to learn from. Be unselfish and share this gift with everyone who is willing to listen.
Outside of your area of expertise, you are probably average or below average at other aspects of your life. This might include schooling, work, parenting, etc… you get the point. If you know you aren’t exceeding at whatever you are doing, resist the temptation to volunteer and speak to these as if you are the expert. Sentences like, “This is what I’m doing” will make you look like a hypocrite if your audience is performing better than you currently are. If you get the feeling that someone is rolling their eyes at you, it is highly likely that others are as well. They are just hiding it better!
Don’t feel bad, you can’t be the best at everything! Focus all of your energy on what you are exceptional at and be the voice of experience and expertise. Have the humility to admit the areas that you struggle with and look for others that are strong in those areas to offer you guidance. You will see that others will have a much greater respect for you!
Never stop believing in yourself! Talk to you soon 🙂
