Since I was a little girl, I knew that I had “it.”
What does that mean? To this day, I can’t fully describe this, but I still know. ‘It” can look like a lot of things. The determination to succeed, the drive to always find a way when there isn’t a clear path, the ability to understand people and read a room in a nano second. To be able to make someone you have never met feel comfortable in just a few words or an athletic ability that comes so naturally, it's hard to imagine why other people have to work so hard to do the same thing.
I don’t think what sets me apart from other people is that I have “it.” I believe the reason I know in my gut that I have “it” is because I have always chosen to take action. If I feel like someone could use a compliment or a hug, I will approach them and serve it up on a silver platter. If I get a sudden urge to help someone in need, I do it. I don’t think about if it is the right thing, enough or if they will really like it. I just do it.
Guess what?? YOU have “it” too. How many times have you gotten a sudden urge or feeling that you should say something, stick up for someone, push yourself to find a way when everyone says there is no way? Pay attention to IT. You have it and the universe is continually placing her hands upon your shoulders to tell you its time. Your gut doesn’t lie, listen and get to it.
