What's In Your Front Yard?

There is a Proverb that says, “The perceptive find wisdom in their own front yard, fools look for it everywhere but right here.”
Sometimes we don’t recognize the value in something close to home. My son Joshua didn’t recognize the ability he possessed to effect his environment, which resulted in continuous job offers. He overlooked his inate ability to relate and communicate to people, because it was right under his nose and seemed so natural.

Likewise I didn’t understand the ability I possessed to connect and befriend people, because it was natural to me. I have a long history of bringing individuals together into a sense of community. Now I recognize the value this brings in a world where people long to feel connected to family. I'm not ashamed to say it!

What’s in your front yard that you are over looking? A clue is: it will be something, so natural to you that it slips your notice.

Ask five people who know you well to list your greatest strengths. Once uncovered, this element will be a key in connecting to what makes you thrive. The world needs what you have and were uniquely gifted to impart.

So what makes you great? Its time to follow your delight, be delight-led, and connect to your greatness.
