Each of us is a somebody!

Nobody is a nobody.
Through my life and career, oftentimes I’ve heard phrases like “what does it really matter, I’m nobody,” or “I’m just one of the thousands, I’m nobody really”. Perhaps in the past you may have felt or are feeling now that you are a nobody.
“We do ourselves a great injustice when we allow ourselves, through tragedy, misfortune, challenge, discouragement, or whatever the earthly situation, to so identify ourselves. No matter how or where we find ourselves, we cannot with any justification label ourselves “nobody.”” – said Marvin J. Ashton.
Frequently life, work and family challenges can get us down and cause us to question who we really are. We doubt ourselves, we doubt our self worth and confidence may fail us. I have been in many coaching conversations where that has been the case.
But,… no BUT.., please, please be assured – each of us is a somebody!!!
All of us are individually endowed with great gifts, unique capabilities, special talents all waiting to be discovered, developed and finely tuned.
Each of us is needed. Each of us is unique. No one, absolutely no one can take your place. You are where you are supposed to be.
My simple invitation today is to invite you to be somebody, nobody thought you could be.
