This is the time of year when we reflect on everything we are grateful for. We give thanks for all the wonderful people in our lives; family, friends, business colleagues. They all contribute to our personal and professional well being and it’s important to take the time to appreciate their presence and contributions to our lives.

I think we should also look inward and be thankful for our own talent and the wonderful and unique qualities we have. We tend to take ourselves for granted. We put ourselves down. Often we don’t take ownership of our accomplishments and successes.

This Thanksgiving give yourself the gift of YOU. Take the time to write out what is special about you, personally and professionally.

What have you accomplished this year?

What qualities do you bring to your personal and professional relationships?

Write it all down and review the list.

Celebrate and be thankful for everything you are!
