Leveraging Your Strengths
A key to achieving personal significance, to feeling that we have made a difference in the world around us, is to leverage our strengths. When we know our strengths and send the majority of our time applying our strengths we will enjoy our lives more and add more value to our workplace, our community, and our family.
Here are a few ways you can identify your strengths:
List the things you love doing
Ask others what they think you do well
Take a strengths survey
Are you leveraging your strengths? For each area of strength, ask yourself whether you use each strength very little, moderately, or a lot, in your professional or your personal life.
To leverage your natural gifts and talents focus most of your work and personal time on pursuits that utilize these strengths.
