This is a blooming Buckeye tree that has planted itself and made it to the next season.

100_3290There are often hundreds of Buckeye seeds that fall onto the ground but only a few turn into trees / bushes. Many Buckeye seeds are eaten by nature’s inhabitants before they can root, so this plant is probably very pleased to see a new day.

When I talk with clients who have challenges I often propose this idea, “In order to get where you want to go, you have to acknowledge your greatest strengths.” Interesting as it may seem, many people put their greatest strengths at the bottom of the list because it feels “so easy”.  I look forward to you listening to Bonnie Coleen and my interview with Bonnie. She is the pioneer of Self-Growth radio Seeing Beyond, with over 23 years interviewing the top leaders including Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, and more…

I’ve learned from Bonnie that acknowledging your inner strengths is important. Parents, siblings, teachers can say…. “you talk too much”, or “stop clowning around”, or” don’t be so inquisitive,” or “stop thinking about sports and focus on homework,” or “don’t dream so big” … but maybe what they are suppressing is your gift.  Honestly evaluate yourself and your talents. What is your style? What makes people notice you? What do you like? What makes you want to excel?

 

Lesson:  Follow your passion, intuition, talent and instincts. They are often more right than not.
