Nobody Does it Better

“Nobody does it better.

Makes me feel sad for the rest

Nobody does it half as good as you

Baby, you’re the best”

These are lyrics from the song, “Nobody Does it Better” sung by Carly Simon.

When it comes to the combination of your unique talents, nobody DOES do it quite the way you do. The problem is discovering what that unique thing you do IS. What is it that makes you special that makes you stand out from the rest?

If you’re really good at singing or playing sports it’s obvious what your thing is. But even with these obvious talents there’s the underlying tenacity and driving force that makes the person strive to be better.

Therefore, even though someone’s good at sports what makes him stand out might really be his willingness to go the extra mile, to have laser like focus on the task at hand. That’s his real talent and it’s what will bode well when he’s an adult.

However, let’s say you can’t quite get a handle on what it is that makes you grand. Perhaps instead it’s your encouraging words that lift another person’s spirit, to carry on, or your ability to listen intently when anyone tells you what’s going on in their lives.

These are the talents that aren’t going to make you stand out in a crowd or win awards but are going to give you the respect a and admiration of the people you have touched. It’s up to you to decide what is more important and what would give you the greatest satisfaction.

Nobody’s Perfect

Guess again. Don’t strain yourself on this one because it’s not a “who” that’s perfect but a “what”. What’s perfect, nature?

It may teeter a bit one way or another but it’s always striving to remain in perfect harmony. It may not appear that way to us humans but nature has been doing fine long before humans arrived. All the natural resources that existed eons ago are still here.

Species come and go naturally on their own without any interference from humans. Some species evolve, adapt, and expand like the various types of big cats and bears while others disappear like the dinosaurs. The same can be said for the various types of indigenous people and cultures that we now know existed.

We live in a world of constant change. As a human race we can learn to adapt and evolve or we will also become extinct. That’s not to say that we’ll all die but rather our cultures and way of life will no longer look the same tomorrow as it does today, but then nothing ever does stay the same does it?

Is that bad? No. Who’d want to stay the same anyway? That’s boring. It’s going to change with or without your cooperation so you might as well get over it and go with the flow. Instead of viewing change as the enemy view it as an adventure with the attitude, “I wonder what life has in store for me today.”

The whole world is in chaos right now. There are still some adjustments that need to be made before the pendulum can swing back and find its own harmony again. Out of chaos comes order. Unfortunately, we are still in the chaos stage.

Action Step: If you look at our own life and compare it to one, three or five years ago, where are you on the pendulum swing? Are you still swinging more to chaos or do you feel you’re on the back swing and you’re finally adjusting to a new order? Take comfort that order is on the way and like nature we’re also striving for harmony.

Raise Your Credit Score

Give yourself credit for what you’ve done and how far you’ve come.

Too often we overlook the things that we do on a daily basis as insignificant because it’s easy. It’s what we do. In reality for you it might be easy but for the guy next to you it’s a struggle. That’s why it’s so hard to give yourself credit, it’s easy. For some reason we believe that to be valued it must be hard to do. Nonsense! I’m on a revolution here to change that kind of thinking. Are you with me?

Here’s a clue. When someone gives you a compliment about something you did and your response is something like, “It was nothing or no big deal”, that’s your clue that it’s one of your talents. Remember those moments when you’re feeling a bit down on yourself.

Here’s another easy test. Look back at the week and reflect on what you’ve accomplished. Take it a step further and look back at the last six months. How far have you come? What goals did you set for yourself and meet? If not, have you gotten closer to it? Every step you took brought you closer and closer to where you are today. Give yourself credit.

It fluctuates. One week you may give yourself a three while another week you were hitting nines. That’s really good. Give yourself credit.

Instead of looking at how far you have to go to reach your goal, look at how far you’ve come. The results may surprise you. Sometimes the goal isn’t’ so much a “doing” thing but a “being “ thing in that you’ve grown as a person. Others may not notice the growth that’s taken place but you have. Give yourself credit.

Every course, conversation or book you’ve read has brought you closer to who you want to be. Give yourself credit.

How high is your score now?

I Confess

I’m a feel good junkie. Guess what, so are you? It’s nothing to be ashamed of.
You always want to feel good about yourself. You seek out activities that you’re already good in. If you’re not good at math you’re certainly not going to apply for a bookkeeping job or play hockey if you can’t skate. No, you’re going to choose the job or activity that you’ve already had some success in and hopefully build on it.

Deep down what you’re looking for is to feel good about yourself. Why take the chance of receiving a bad review from your boss or embarrassed because of your lack of skill on an ice rink? You consciously choose what you’re good at. It’s as if your spirit has a safe guard mechanism to protect your self esteem. Isn’t that sweet?

Even the language you use is part of this mechanism. When you hear a put-down it’s indirectly a way for the person talking to feel better about him. By drawing attention to another person’s fault it makes him look good. In extreme cases the person may adopt a poor-poor pitiful me attitude which is like him screaming for some positive feedback. Make me feel good. Make me feel good.

If you really think about the underlying reason why you do what they do, it’s to feel good about yourself. You’re a feel good junkie.
