GIFTS for Achieving Sure Fire Success

With the giving season right around the corner, I thought this would be a great opportunity to talk about GIFTS again. This is the
perfect time to remember that you have all the GIFTS you need to succeed in business (and life)–you just need to use them
. Hands and Gifts

Most people would agree that it’s a shame to get a really cool gift and then never seize the opportunity to use it to its fullest potential. Well now is the time to start focusing on the invaluable GIFTS that you have that will ensure your business success.

Allow me to explain. You see, there are certain things that you need to focus on, and build your business and life around, in order to achieve a high level of success and satisfaction. I call these things your “GIFTS” and they truly are gifts.

Let me define them for you:

“G” is for Genius. Think of “genius” as your creativity, your brilliance, your expertise, and your uniqueness. It’s your ability to problem solve and think things that no one else is thinking. It’s what makes you you. It’s what sets you apart from the crowd and makes you stand out. Genius is your extraordinary intellectual and creative power. Your genius contributes to all of the other GIFTS in your bag.
• “I” is for Interests. Interests are the things that you like, the people you love, and the activities in which you wish to engage. You love spending time on your interests and learning all that you can about them. Interests draw and focus your attention
unlike anything else.
• “F” is for Fire. “Fire” is your energy and passion. It’s that spark that motivates you to achieve your goals and dreams. It’s the burning desire you have to be your best. It’s the fuel that drives you toward success. Fire is the compelling force that will not let you fail. Fire is the catalyst for action.
• “T” is for Talents. Talents are the things that you do exceptionally well. You don’t have to work very hard at doing them, but the more you practice them, the better you get. People often comment on how effortless you make these things appear. They don’t come so easily for everyone. Know what your talents are and how you can help others with your talents and you are sure to achieve success.
• “S” is for Strengths. Strengths are inner and outer sources of power. These are the characteristics that give you the power to resist stress, strain, and
adversity. They give you the fortitude to be a successful business owner and to withstand the ups and downs of life. Your strengths contribute to your overall effectiveness and ability to “get the job done.”

Take a few moments today to think about your specific GIFTS and start planning ways to incorporate your gifts into your business and everyday life. These things may sound “pie in the sky” for you right now, but they really are the keys to success. Everything you do should be focused on leveraging your GIFTS.

I would love to hear how you use your GIFTS in your business and life.  Please share your comments below.

Feedback & Comments:

  1. It’s sad to me that so many people actually don’t have a clue what their own gifts are. These are great ways to get at what it is you uniquely have to offer the world.

  2. Great idea. This post would also make a great gift for some young people who might need some support in finding their path/passion. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Love the acronym. I share my GIFTS through my writing, my sense of humor, and my work (which doesn’t feel like work because what I do is a gift in itself) .

  4. What a beautiful post …I can’t stop smiling and that in itself is a gift
