Your strengths are the things that lift you up, energise you and make you feel good. The more we understand and use our strengths the more joy we will experience in our lives.
Have a think about the following questions…
What do you look forward to doing?
What did you do this week that gave you a lift and made you feel good?
These can be seemingly small things – lending someone a helping hand, working on a new idea, solving a problem.
Write your answers down and be as specific as possible. Then stick them on the wall where you can see them. Remind yourself to spend as much time as you can using your strengths. It’s the key to fulfilment, success and wellbeing.
If you’re keen to make changes to your job, career or generally feel more fulfilled and confident you can find more help in The Strengths Workbook. It’s is an eight -week programme with short weekly and daily exercises.

It’s human nature to focus more on our weaknesses because we are programmed to be alert to risks in our environment. We end up focusing on what isn’t working, often overshadowing all the positives. But what if you focused on and played to your strengths instead? When you understand your strengths, you know what will make you fulfilled, happy and successful. It means you can become the best version of yourself as well as being confident about who you are.
Most people don’t know their strengths and struggle to know what’s right for them. The Strengths Workbook changes that with an eight-week programme that you can start anytime. If you want to become more energised and effective in life, work and relationships, this workbook is for you.

It’s human nature to focus more on our weaknesses because we are programmed to be alert to risks in our environment. We end up focusing on what isn’t working, often overshadowing all the positives. But what if you focused on and played to your strengths instead? This practical and succinct book aims to revolutionise your life by helping you to identify what exactly makes you happy so that you will make the right choices; decide whether a job, activity or course is right for you; and understand why things seem to flow with some activities and some people, and not others. Knowing these things about yourself, and spending more time on what really energises and fulfils you – your strengths – will ultimately lead to a happier and more successful life.
