At this workshop we will dive into the importance of focusing on strengths. We will touch on what are strengths and dive deep into what are YOUR own unique strengths. The focus will be on discovering but also on applying your strengths more in everyday life.
Strengths are strongly related to happiness, resilience and meaning. Using the strengths often makes us more happy and satisfied because working with your own strengths is very enjoyable. It also builds our confidence and improves results, leading to higher resilience. Last but not least, using strengths makes you feel authentic and makes you feel authentic and strengthens the feeling of meaning and purpose in own life and everyday activities.
Your strengths are a bit like your sails.
In some ways, life is a bit like a cruise and we are a sailing boat. And on that sailing boat, weakness are like holes in the boat, and the strengths are like sails. Of course, if holes are too big, sail won’t really help. But just focusing on fixing weaknesses won’t take you far, and does not bring in nearly as much fun and success as engaging your sails more.
Using the sails is what really takes us forward in life and provides much more enjoyment than fixing the holes. Sails are what really moves us towards the destination.
