Still Searching for Your Dream Job? Identify Your Gifts and Use Them

This holiday season I’m contemplating what a gift is. At this time of year, I typically think of a gift as something wrapped in bright Christmas paper with sparkly ribbon. Or maybe it’s a brown cardboard box from Amazon. When it comes to our human “gifts,” that is, our natural talents, sometimes it’s a little trickier to identify what they are. They don’t necessarily come wrapped with sparkly ribbon. Sometimes, we even have a tendency to dismiss our gifts as unimportant or frivolous. We may not use them often or spend much time developing them because we assume “They won’t pay the bills.” And that’s the first mistake I think we make. We assume our gifts won’t earn us money. Ummmm…how do you

It IS the Thought That Counts

When it comes to holiday shopping, careers, relationships, life happiness, or basically anything, for that matter, it IS the thought that counts. In fact, it may be the ONLY thing that matters. I “should” be holiday shopping RIGHT NOW, if I want to get gifts to my family before December 25. But I’m not. I’m procrastinating. I love my family. I want to get them gifts, but right now my bank account might not agree with my desire. I can assure you, the LAST thing anyone in my family wants is for me to spend money I don’t have. So why am I even considering it? Pride. Tradition. Because this is what I always do. Because I don’t want to admit to myself, much less my family, that maybe it’d be wise
