Leveraging the Strength Within

Leveraging the Strength Within

The Powerful Paragraph

When I’m feeling depleted, frustrated, or uncertain, it’s common for me to seek external resources to remedy these emotions. Caffeine for energy, a good song to ease my frustration, or the advice of a friend to gain clarity. But it’s important that we don’t forget about our internal resources, most importantly, our strengths. My top strength is humor and playfulness, and I can leverage this in just about any scenario. For example, I can leverage this when I’m depleted by watching a funny video to recharge my batteries. I can leverage this when I’m frustrated by taking a break to play with my dog or cats. I can leverage this when I’m uncertain by making a game out of a decision-making process. In any of these scenarios, I know if I play to my strengths, I’ll come out on the other side feeling much better.

In coaching and other helping professions, self-awareness means knowing how our actions, thoughts, and emotions align with our values. Rather than something that indicates a sense of being hyper-aware or insecure, self-awareness empowers someone to make objective assessments of themselves and make choices to adjust in a way that matches with their internal standards.

We often forget the impact that external events can have on our mental health. Depressing news stories and second-hand bad news can take more of a toll on our stress levels than we might initially think.
