Assess and Cultivate Your Strengths

There are events in your life that will happen unexpectedly; that will just knock you off your feet. Something can happen in an instant that may throw you completely off balance, and make you feel disconnected. So what do you do? You pick yourself up and carry on! It may not always be quite so easy, as you will feel challenged. Your self-confidence may be shallow, and perhaps your feelings might be hurt. You may feel as if you are completely powerless. Well.. the good news is that you are not powerless. This is where you tap into your inner strength.

You find a quiet time for yourself, identify and assess where your strengths are, then cultivate them. I know it might be easier to dwell in self-pity and feel as though you will never be strong again. But what a waste of energy! Your inner strength comes from exercising your heart muscle. There is endurance, composure, courage and compassion that can help you resolve and overcome the most difficult of times.

There is physical strength, mental strength, and emotional strength. You must tap into all of them to create a balance. All three are required when working through any difficult situation. Remember that knowledge = power and when you learn to integrate them you gain self-empowerment. That will bring about new thoughts that lead to new choices, new behaviors, new emotions and new experiences. A single moment of inspiration can lead you to a new state of being.

Find the motivation from your inner strength to do what you love. That alone can build your self-confidence. When you are feeling confident, you have a burst of energy, and you feel as though you can take on the world. Affirm your strong qualities and hold on to the incredible way you feel when encountered with accomplishment.

Examine your life and know what makes you feel secure. Follow your intuition. Most likely it’s one of your strengths. Enjoy what you know and remember how that feels. It keeps you centered.

“We must all learn to listen to the whispers of our authentic self
It will allow you to know and be true to who you are”.
