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.
