Say Yes Every Day by Laura Brandao

Finding the greatness inside of you is the first step saying, “YES”, but how do we identify what our greatness is?

For me, it was to listen vs hearing.  All of my life, I’d heard people say how energized they felt after spending time with me, but what they were saying to me was that I had a gift that they received – my ability to impart my enthusiasm and energy onto others was appreciated – and needed!  Once I started to listen to what others were sharing with me about my gift – my willingness to grow with it became a passion for me.  

What do others share with you?  Are you told you’re curious?  Perhaps they’re telling you that your curiosity is due to your creative mind that seeks out variations to what is in front of you. Be fearless in tapping into your greatness!
