When you think of strengths what comes to mind?
Have you ever worked on a project that bored you to tears and then move on to another that engaged all of your senses and really energized you? Those experiences hold the clues to finding your strengths. If you look in the dictionary, strength is defined as a beneficial quality or attribute of a person. Researchers have identified twenty four different personality strengths, which everyone in the world has. While these strengths are part of everyone’s personality to a degree, different strengths will be more dominant than others in different people. These are known as ‘signature’ strengths.
Think of all the different activities and various situations you encounter in your day. You will discover many clues about your strengths. Take time to pause and pay attention, keep a note book to record patterns of skills and strengths that you notice.
Imagine you have settled in to watch a movie and you are watching an autobiography called A Day In The Life of Me , and as you see your day in this detached way, what do you notice?
Enjoy the journey!
