Every once in a while we come across a person saying ‘I don’t know what strengths I have’ and is still following some trending education or working at a job anyways. Our deepest fear is that we are inadequate. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. If you don’t know what you want to achieve then you cannot work towards it just like it is impossible to start a journey without knowing a destination. You have to be burning with an idea, or a problem, or a wrong that you want to right. If you’re not passionate enough from the start, you’ll never stick it out. The sense of achievement in life is standing out from the crowd.

It is absolutely bewildering to know that many people are not aware of their passion, their strengths. If you want to live a great life, you have to know where you want to reach. The point where you’d feel the sense of achievement. It is often said that ‘Not failure but low aim is crime’ and as such not having any passion or goal is a huge crime. You get to know your passion when you are fully aware of the strengths and abilities you posses. If you perfectly know what you have then only you acknowledge what you want. Everyone wants to be successful person but not everyone can pull off their success story the way they believed at one point or other. This makes many wonder, what goes wrong in life that we end up not to the point we so wanted to be, but to the point we so not wanted to be. The reason I believe so many fail to stand out is because they do not have a genuine passion in their life. It doesn’t matter how many resources you have if you don’t know how to use them, it will never be enough.

Perfectly knowing your strengths make you ages ahead than of someone who doesn’t. If you know what you are genuinely good at, you only have to nurture one specific strength of your personality narrowing down the work you have to undergo on yourself. The strengths you have are the resources you use to live a great life. Being aware of the strengths and talents you have puts in a position of great advantage.Provided that true potential within an individual is harnessed, they can do great things in life. If you have a strong purpose in life, you don’t have to be pushed. Your passion will drive you there.

There is nothing noble in being superior to the others, true nobility lies in being superior to your former self. Although being better than someone else is betterment in itself, growing yourself to the level higher is a triumph as Will. When the strengths and passion are understood, you can improvise yourself to be better than what you are right now. This assists you in growing your strengths and abilities to even better calibre. There are often times when we are required to set a course for our future, be it long term or short term. We have many decisions to be taken. At that point in time strengths and capabilities play an important role in determining what we want to do above anything else. It helps in deciding a goal with which we can move forward and shape our future. The direction is much more important than the speed. Of course speed is important, but if you are heading really fast in the wrong direction, you are bound to fail massively. Knowing your strengths will make you correctly recognise the direction you want to head towards.

Working in an environment that compliments and utilises your strengths naturally increases your productivity making you no longer feel leashed to the work you do. Increase in the productivity leads to the superior quality of work succeeding you in the field you of work. You can exhibit your strengths and abilities more astonishing manner. Accomplishing the success comes through the talents you possess and if you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. We are all meant to shine not just some of us; but everyone. As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
