Passion: Discover & Deploy Your Strengths

DO WHAT YOU LOVE

As we’ve worked through these areas, you’ve probably started to think about the areas you’re strong in and how those are the things you love to do.  Often our passions and our strengths are mirrored closely in each other.  There are times where we’re really good at something we don’t like to do, but those are the exceptions.

Thinking through this process of discovering your strengths, here are some good questions to ask yourself:

  • What do you love to do? 
  • What are your hobbies? 
  • What’s your favorite activity? 
  • What’s your favorite part of your normal day to day job? 
  • What would you do for free simply because you love doing it?

The things you love to do have a good chance of being the things that you’re great at.  Those might be the things where you have some natural talent that should be used and developed.

  • There are plenty of things that I love to do but circumstances hinders me from doing them. Like I don’t have a budget for certain things that would develop my talent. I just don’t think of it that much so that I won’t get disappointed.

  • Brad,
    My suggestion is to start by taking little steps today.
    Is there anything you can do that does not cost money?
