When you live from a strengths-based perspective, you enjoy better relationships, greater job satisfaction and a happier sense of purpose in your life. 

Feel More Confident About Yourself

When you know what you are good at and where your strong points lie, you can start feeling much more confident about yourself. When you feel confident in your abilities, you are much more likely to take action which in turn will help you progress in life. Confidence will help you progress in your professional and personal life. It is always easier to succeed in relationships when you are able to feel confident about yourself. Focusing on your abilities and strengthening them will help you to become a much more confident person. 

Stop Questioning Yourself

Questioning yourself is a one way street to inaction. When you question yourself, you are much less likely to take the action it really takes in order to succeed. Focusing on your greatest abilities will lead to you massive action that will come without questioning yourself. The more your focus on your weaknesses, the more you will question yourself. Instead, develop your abilities and become a champion. 

First Impression Made Easier

Focusing on your abilities will help you identify who you really are. This will make it much easier to make great first impressions. When people are asking you questions about yourself during a conversation, you will be able to respond with engaging answers that will impress others. These first impressions can lead you to new jobs, relationships, and opportunities that you would have never stumbled upon otherwise.

Become a Better Leader 

Focusing on your abilities will give you the power you need to become a better leader. Becoming confident in yourself will make it easier for others to follow your lead. Whether you are trying to become a better leader at work or in your family, your abilities will help you to become the leader that you need to be.

These are just a few highlights showing how living a strengths-based life is beneficial. I would love to hear how living a strengths-based life is beneficial for you.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
