Monday Motivation: Invest in your Strengths
“Accept yourself, your strengths, your weaknesses, your truths, and know what tools you have to fulfill your purpose.”
― Steve Maraboli
Commit to your natural strengths that allow your skill sets and capabilities to thrive, and then invest in them. For example, if you are a good speaker, never assume that your technique doesn’t require improvement. Take a class, enhance your abilities and then put them to work more frequently.
Keep in mind that just because you’re good at something, that doesn’t make it a strength. How do you know what your natural strengths are?
Ask yourself these questions:
When do I feel the most engaged at work?
What activities make you feel strong?
What do you do differently than everyone else?
You can’t build your career around your best attributes until you know your strengths!
