The second step of learning to like yourself is:
Amplify your strengths instead of your weaknesses
God has gifted each and every one of us with various talents and skills to be used upon the earth. However, many of us spend too much time focused on our weaknesses instead of our strengths. As a young child, I wanted to be an athlete; I soon realized that it was not something I was created to do. Through trial and error, I was able to find my skills in teaching, writing and speaking. Do not be afraid to step out on faith and try something new. Once you discover your strengths, perfect those gifts. For example, if you find your strength is writing, write new blogs, articles, poems as much as you can. If possible take a few professional classes to enhance your skills. If your weakness is sports, don't strive to be the next Lebron James or Serena Williams, reserve sports activities for something fun to do in your spare time.
