1 of 5: 5 Steps to Kick-Starting Your Top 5
So you just received your Top 5…now what?
Staring at that Strengths Action Plan can be a little intimidating. For many strength seekers, it can actually be the intersection that divides two paths. One leads to ignoring the report all together and chalking it up as “just another assessment,” and the other leads to a life full of new possibilities accompanied by a clearer vision of a prosperous future.
To avoid traveling down the road of strengths regret, I’d like to offer up a quick tip that will point you in the right direction every time.
Quick tip #1
The first thing you need to do when reviewing your Top 5, is to select one of the five themes to focus on each week. Forget the other four, and concentrate on just one at a time.
This method will alleviate the chances of strengths overload!
Invest a single week actively searching for times when that signature theme presents itself in both your personal and professional life. Be sure to document each event in a small notebook, so that you can go back and reference the actions that forced your strengths to shift into overdrive. Also, share your plan with others so they too can be on the lookout, assisting you in a week’s worth of strengths discovery.
After five weeks, not only will you be intimately aware of your Top 5, but you’ll be fully invested in a new life full of strengths-based success! Doors will begin to open, and you’ll find that you no longer lose your sense of direction. Your strengths will act as a compass pointing you in the direction that’s best suited for you as an individual with a unique set of talents.
One theme at a time. Just one.
There’s no time clock in the game of self-activation.
