free space

what’s your free square?

Victoria Moran, author of Creating a Charmed Lifetalks about the fact that every one of us has “a FREE square,” something like in Bingo, where each of us automatically gets something for nothing. You can take a look at a few of her ideas here.

Think about your FREE square as your special gift/talent. What do people admire you for? What are you particularly good at?

As a rule, we’re not used to thinking this way: we tend to get modest and say we don’t have any special gifts; when people compliment us, we downplay it, etc.

Tell us about your FREE square—even if you think you know (and especially if you don’t!), here’s an assignment:

Call, text, or email 10 people who know you well, and ask them:

  • What do you think I’m particularly good at?
  • What do you think I’m an expert in?
  • If you came to me for advice, what would it be about?

Then let us know what you discovered in the comments below. You may have your own opinion confirmed … or you may be totally surprised!
