You are like a house

You are like a house. Not really, but sort of.

What I mean is, when you own a house, you’ve got to own all of it: The damaged roof, the leaky water heater, scheduling the cleaning company. Unfortunately, if we don’t take care of little problems, they turn into great big, expensive troubles.

Same in life…only reversed.

Raise your hand if you’re very good at taking ownership of all the crappy things you’ve done. I know I am. For example, I’m selfish. I procrastinate. Sometimes, I’m not a nice person. The negatives are easy to own.

But what about owning your gifts? Did you know you’re actually more selfish when you don’t take responsibility and own the amazing parts of you, too? Not only do you deprive yourself, you deprive the important people in your life from really connecting with you and supporting you. God has given each of us a skill set and a talent–own that, too!

Before I wrote this message, Posterous, a client called me to say, “Vasavi, I want to tell you 2 things. First, thank you so much for coming into my life. I love God because he put me into your life. Second, I’m so honored to be working with you.”

And you know what? It was hard for me to swallow that praise–I’m not even going to lie. But I recovered (!) I thought, “Vasavi, you must own that. It’s also who you are. You have so much love to give…that’s why you became a coach!”

Ownership is the “O” in my S.O.U.R.C.E. of Your Success coaching philosophy. When we own the good and the bad, the right and the wrong, we step into our humanity…and discover our real passion in life!
