“True happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose.” – John Mason Brown
One of the main reasons why people find themselves unhappy in life is due to the fact that they have not found their true purpose.
There are many individuals who still feel desolate in spite of all their achievements, recognition, affluence and possessions combined.
This is why it is so essential to reframe our perspectives so that we can find our bigger purpose in life sooner than later.
Our REFRAME Masterclass is a discovery programme that enables you to achieve greater clarity, capability and context around your purpose.
It can help reframe your experiences and successes to design the best life possible for you – a life which can be filled with joy, engagement and meaning.
The masterclass can be broken down into 4 simple steps for easier comprehension and today’s article will provide you with a little more information on the first step – knowing your Strengths.
Knowing Your Strengths
Every individual has his or her own unique strengths. Strengths can “reveal a way to see how all perspectives are true, all visions should be heard, and all individuals have potential for generative influence”.
Comprehending this idea, especially when one finds himself/herself at the crossroads offered by life, is critical. This has been true to such an extent that the Gallup organisation created an assessment tool called CliftonStrengths “StrengthsFinder”.
This assessment tool helps individuals find which among the 34 talent themes people resonate with and use strongly in their lives. This can help people find the top 5 qualities that make up their “unique talent DNA”.
StrengthsFinder was created by Don Clifton who felt that there was “no more effective way to empower people than to see each person in terms of his or her strengths”.
We, at StrengthsAsia, use this tool frequently with our audiences to help both individuals and corporates find ways to become stronger, smarter and sharper in life.
On the basis of a study conducted by Gallup, it was found that employees feel more confident, self-aware and productive when focusing on strengths rather than weaknesses.
Consequently, this led to “higher employee engagement, increased performance and significantly lower attrition rates” as well.
Identifying and knowing your strengths is therefore, the first fundamental step you can take to recognise your true potential. Subsequently, building up on your strengths can help you learn how to play them to your advantage in the future too.
After knowing your strengths and recognising how they can benefit you, the only thing left to do is to know how to appropriately apply them to your life. Your strengths could be applied with regards to your business, or your even personal life.
In conclusion, focusing on developing your strengths can allow you to feel more confident, provide greater motivation and even become an effective source of influence as well as energy.
