Strengths Finder 2.0

So as you gals may know I'm a reader. I began reading the New York Times Best Seller "Strengths Finder 2.0" by Tom Rath. This book is backed by more than 50 Years of studying people & their strengths. Here are a few interesting quotes: 'what's more, we had discovered that people have several times more potential for growth when they invest energy in developing their strengths instead of correcting their deficiencies.' I too have thought this from reading other books and also feel this also pertains to our looks, we All have insecurities but why bother concentrating on those when we can concentrate instead of what we do love about ourselves, which will always make us feel way better and whats more important than that? 

Now when it comes to career & personality 'our studies indicate that people who do have the opportunity to focus on their strengths every day are six times as likely to be engaged in their jobs and more than three times as likely to report having an excellent quality of life in general.' Many times people are stuck in jobs or careers where they are not taking advantage of their biggest strengths and what a waste that must be so I decided to invest $10 into taking their online test at Choose the Strengths Finder Test 2.0, it really is a great investment. My top 5 strengths turned out to be Maximizer, Positivity, Focus, Futuristic and activator - which couldn't describe me any better! I love it because it provides you with your top strengths, explanations of these as well as an action plan on how to incorporate them into your life & career. FYI I'm not getting paid for giving this recommendation. I always blog about things that I feel have helped better my life & share that info with you Bellas. Hope you find your biggest strengths & use them to your full potential. Xoxo

So test yourself.
