What are your strengths? Within the workplace, you identify your strengths as communication skills, technology, people management, writing, leadership and more. What about within your life – how would you identify your strengths? When you update your LinkedIn profile, what changes do you make? Perhaps those changes address your workplace, your functions, your responsibilities. Think beyond your professional profile; think about yourself.
I encourage you to consider the following areas: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and intellectual.
The physical you requires good nutrition, appropriate weight, beneficial exercise and adequate rest.
The emotional you needs to give and receive forgiveness, love and compassion; needs to laugh and experience happiness; needs joyful relationships with yourself and others.
The mental you needs self-supportive attitudes, positive thoughts and viewpoints and a positive self-image.
The spiritual you requires inner calmness, openness to your creativity, and trust in your inner knowing.
The intellectual you requires fulfillment, personal development, and satisfying relationships.
It is mid-year, and perhaps it is time to realize your strengths and reach your potential.
Resolve to be the captain of your ship – your body/mind/spirit. A comfortable, healthy balance between your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects doesn’t happen accidentally. Someone has to be in charge, and that someone is always you. Sit back, recognize your strengths, and prepare to launch anew in mid-2017!
