Use Your Strengths to Find Success…

December 21, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

From my friends at Navigating Life’s Journey:

Here’s a great idea …

In their publication, The Personal Journey, Wally Goddard and James Marshall say “Each person has strengths and weaknesses. The greatest joy and progress come from using our strengths while managing our weaknesses. We discover our strengths by noticing what we love to do, those things that challenge us and get us so engaged that we lose track of time.”

In other words …

One of the best ways to be happy and successful is to find ways to use our strengths in our day-to-day lives. The things we are good at are often things we find enjoyment in doing. We can even use our strengths to help us compensate for our weaknesses.

Here’s how you can use this idea to have a better life …

Learn what YOUR personal strengths are by taking the free VIA Survey of Character Strengths at www.authentichappiness.org. This 240-item survey will help you determine which of the 24 identified human strengths are most characteristic of you.

Once you have identified your personal strengths, look for ways to use them. You may even redesign your career and life to better use your strengths. Let the happiness begin!
