For everyone of us its quite easy to get an idea whether we´re creative because we probably paint, draw or we simply like to design clothes or cars. Others are rather structured and love to take photos or do presentation slides for clubs.
But there is another area of talents at which we should also turn to! I talk about our strenghts.
Today I would like to recommend a book from 2001 by Marcus Buckingham and Donald O. Clifton (GALLUP Principle) with the original title “Now, Discover Your Strengths” (The Free Press). The German translation is: “Entdecken Sie Ihre Stärken jetzt!”
It walks from the anatomy of strength over to its sources and further on. I was amazed how much I was able to find out of “WHO” I am. The best is the online-test every reader is able to make. The book includes a code to sing-up and to receive the important result. If you haven´t been on that path yet – please GO!
I don´t want to add too much about the book itself ( read it ! ) and what it might deliver for you but instead will leave you with the result of what the test presented to me:
Activator + Individualization + Learner + Relator + Self-Assurance
Your level of self-awareness is what will crack open and boosts you and as so often, another fresh insight is the ideal start into a new year! Raise your level of self-awareness –
BE A DECISION MAKER. BECOME OUTSTANDING.
