If you’re anything like me, you reflect on yourself quite often. You might even make lists of different things about yourself. This post is specifically focusing on making a list of things you think you are good at. And I’m not talking about that list you put on your resume. I’m talking about the random little things that you know you can do and have actually done.
It is always good to know what you’re good at for many reasons. For example, it can be used as a way to connect to other individuals and find people who mutual share in the “I can do this club”. You can also use it as a way to develop other skills or as an advantage when learning something new. It’s also a great tool when you need a little self esteem boost. If you’re ever feeling a little down just think “But I can do this like nobody’s business!” and go on with you’re awesome self. There are endless possibilities when you know what you’re good at.
Here is my criteria for making this list:
1. Not many other people can also do this.
2. You have done this multiple times.
It’s a very short criteria list, but it’s left to help you make your own criteria. One I considered adding is the optional number 3 of this is something you’re proud of, but if you are inclined to disregard this than by all means. You do you after all.
If you read my quarter life crisis post, you know that I, along with many, many others, often feel stress, anxiety, and inadequacies in life. By knowing what you are good at, and what you enjoy, it can help you get on a path of happiness and success.
