Have you ever noticed that when you’re doing what you love that time seems to fly by? Hours pass in what feels like minutes because you are pursuing your passion. You’re doing what comes naturally to you and when you’ve completed the task, you realize that even though you may be physically tired you are full of an inner energy, enthusiasm, and sense of accomplishment.
The reason...is that by using your strengths you are fed on a deep level. You are in alignment with your purpose when you use your unique gifts and talents. In contrast, when we try to force ourselves to do what does not come naturally to us we tend to be sluggish. This low energy causes us to procrastinate and delay engaging in those activities. This doesn’t excuse us from doing tasks that aren’t in our strengths spectrum. In those instances, however, we can recognize why we are de~motivated and re~frame the task by using our strengths or partner with someone who has a passion for that task. Strengths help us to create more motivation and energy.
If I were to ask you what your strengths are, what would you say?
Would the question challenge you to speak honestly about your good qualities…make you feel uncomfortable…or both? Or would you wonder, what’s the point, and dismiss this question as irrelevant? If you find it difficult to ‘toot your own horn’ and say aloud what makes you special….you are not alone.
In fact, many of us don’t know what our strengths are in the first place, much less how to talk about them in a confident and non~egotistical manner.
But really...What are your Strengths, what is your passion, what are your goals, what is it that you want most in this life? .
