Most people start by looking at what is wrong with them, or what they “can’t” do. I was a psychologist for over a decade, and I always had to start my interviews with, “What is wrong?” This is completely icky and gross. Personally, I railed against this system and was always getting into trouble for asking people to focus on what was going well in their lives, how they could change things, and where they could create a better future.
Shame on me, right?
Instead of focusing on what you’re not good at, and wasting countless hours trying to “improve” yourself, let’s focus on what you are good at – your Strengths. When you approach life from a “what’s right” angle, you not only accomplish much more and do it much more quickly, but you get much more satisfaction from it.
