Do you know your strengths? The themes of your life? Your values and philosophy in life?
Reading Tom Rath's Strengths Finder 2.0 and completing the self-revealing questionnaire, it's made me more conscious of who and what I am, as well as who and what others are.
Parts of one body, each comes with different strengths, weaknesses, passions, interests and life experiences.
In an ideal world, we have perfect understanding of each other and seamless collaborative powers. Kinda like Captain Planet, haha.
From here to the ideal world, it's for us to bridge the differences among us and make the most of our relationships. Sounds simple but there's so much more to it than we realise--how we affect one another, how we lead others, how others lead us, the "right" questions to ask or say, the situations and circumstances that energize us or don't energize us etc.
The key is this: Know thyself and take active steps to maximise and better thyself. You will be blessed, others too.
