Discover your strengths and empower yourself for the New Year!
Christmas is the time when we should be thinking of others, sure. But that doesn't mean that you should ignore yourself. If you're like a lot of fangirls out there (me included), and you have heroic aspirations and the need to be someone, to make a difference, to be recognized for something greater than yourself, then there's a pretty good chance that you're a tad too hard on yourself. You try to be your best at everything, perhaps giving away too much of yourself along the way. In the end you're tired, you feel used and unappreciated, and you may not even recognize everything you've accomplished. To that I say, "No more!"
If any of the above rings true for you, then you absolutely must complete this assignment. It's time for you to step up and declare your awesomeness. And in order to do that, first you have to recognize, accept and appreciate everything that you are and everything you can be.
"But Professor, I'm not awesome. I'm a nobody compared to Jared/Jensen/Misha/Harry Potter/The Doctor (fill in the blank with your most idolized actor or character). I'm not even half of what they are..."
To that I say, "Bull. Shit." Your favorite celebrities and characters have insecurities, imperfections and weaknesses just like you and everyone else. Those aren't the things that matter. What matters is that you discover your strengths, and use them to make the world a better place. Boom.
Now, do your freakin' homework and discover your strengths so we can get on to the more exciting stuff (like learning to fly... or at least soar to new heights). This is what I call setting yourself up for an amazing 2017.
- Save or print the worksheet.
- Invite a friend to Fangirl University so you can keep each other accountable.
- Answer openly and honestly. It's ok (more like necessary) to recognize the best parts of yourself!
- Think about what you've learned throughout the week.
- Leave a comment below when you've figured out your greatest strength.
If you get stuck, don't fret my pet. This stuff ain't easy, which is why most of us haven't done it. It's overwhelming. But luckily, I have a plan for that. Head over to the Fangirl University Student Facebook Group to ask your questions and get support from me and the other students.
