Answer the following questions so you can begin to design a successful plan, avoid drifting and ultimately reclaim your life:
- What are your strengths? Take a look at your life, work, proficiencies and the activities you enjoy.
- What are your weaknesses? What subjects or tasks do you naturally avoid? How can you use your weaknesses to your advantage?
- What are your differences? What makes you unique? How can your experiences, talents and proclivities make a difference to others?
- What are you passionate about? Which tasks excite and energize you? How can you become more involved with them at work?
Somewhere at the intersection of these four questions lies your foundation for success and happiness. Your time is best spent on blending these components into something productive.
When we operate from – and leverage – our strengths, we function at our personal best. This holds the greatest possibility of living and working in flow, which often leads to greater satisfaction and happiness in all aspects of life. Each of us needs to have faith that we have been given just the right strengths to be all that we dream of being. We need to claim these strengths and gifts, aloud. It is our responsibility to make the most of the role we were born to play and to live our strongest possible life.
