Our motivations are the reasons behind our actions. We tend not to think about our motivations as they are intrinsically part of who we are. Different people are motivated by different things.
What are your deeper motivations?
Maybe you’re motivated by challenge, perhaps you really need to feel secure, maybe you want to have autonomy to do what your choose.
Your motivations are your strengths too because they’re such a fundamental part of you and what you stand for. And they’re the fuel that keeps us wanting to do what we do.
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.
