Creative solutions abound when you use your personal strengths and natural gifts. In this audio clip, I’ll give you some great questions to ask yourself to discover your innate gifts and get on the path to career satisfaction.
A big part of knowing and standing in your truth is knowing what comes naturally to you.
This is a great career planning question to ask yourself if you want to discover personal strengths that have the best potential for career satisfaction.
Because the things that come naturally to you are very often the things you do better than most other people.
They don’t require as much effort as other tasks and jobs.
They don’t make you feel like you’re banging your head against a wall.
And they don’t feel like work.
Doing the things that come naturally to you (and/or having employees in your business that do) fosters an environment where creative solutions come easily.
This is one of the keys to a successful business.
Unfortunately, (and I see this consistently with my clients) most of us swat these things away.
We think they come as easily to everyone as they come to us, and so we discount how valuable they really are.
One of the reasons for this is that we have an education system that does not teach children how to recognize, honor, and develop their natural gifts and talents.
Rather, it prepares them to focus their attention on doing “what makes sense” or how to make money in the corporate world.
If you want to discover what your natural gifts and talents are, think about what you would do if you knew for certain you would not fail.
Keep in mind, this doesn’t have to be a huge, big-bang-level realization, like joining the peace corp.
It’s often something that takes just a subtle shift in how you are thinking, but it does require deep inner listening.
So, what are the innate skills YOU were born with?
What are the things YOU love to do that require little effort?
What comes naturally to YOU?
Exploring the answers to these questions will reveal your most potent personal strengths!
Finding a way to incorporate them into your job description will make work easier and more fulfilling.
