Final night time, nine-year-old Anton did a kind of kicky handstand scenario. Then he checked out me and stated: “I’m a god at cartwheels.”
Sure! I laughed and clapped.
However his unapologetic confidence made me consider a ladies’s management group that my pal Juliet just lately attended. To kick off the session, they had been requested to go across the room and say what they had been specialists in. Though they had been medical doctors and professors and scientists, not one of the ladies may deliver themselves to say that they had been specialists of their fields. It felt too daring, too blunt, too absolute.
However why not? Everybody has experience in numerous areas, massive and small, severe and lighthearted. Why can’t we are saying it out loud?
So! I’ll go first: I’m an professional at discovering killer Airbnbs, even with a number of parameters. I’m good at speaking to little youngsters. I’m an professional at operating a ladies’s way of life web site. I’m good at faking an English accent. I’m at professional at giving again tickles and drawing phrases that you just then must guess. I’m good at not taking issues personally. I’m an professional at climbing many flights of stairs as a substitute of taking a scary elevator!!!
On the flip, I’m decidedly not an professional at cooking or operating or listening to small noises with out freaking out.
What about you? What are you an professional in? Be trustworthy! Be proud! Harness the boldness of a nine-year-old boy!
P.S. A superb trick for worriers, and what’s your professional tip?
