What Am I Good At? – Interactive Post!

Alright, this isn’t a post for you to just read, this is one for you to get involved and apply some things to help YOU as you work to answer the questions, “What am I good at?” So get out a writing device and lets get started!

Knowing our strengths can help us stay motivated when things get rough and we feel like giving up. There are so many areas that can sometimes be difficult to stay motivated and excited about. What are those areas for you? Work? Parenting? Relationships? Hobbies?

Pick your top two things that jump to your mind with the strongest feelings of exhaustion and “I just can’t do this anymore” thought popping in your head. Ok?… Got them…? Ok write those down

Area #1:

Area #2:

Take each area at a time and go through these steps.

Go back and think about a time when you were really, REALLY motivated and excited about this area.

When was that?

What was that like?

What specific thoughts ran through your head that helped you get out of bed?

What were you doing differently about your life compared to now?

Now I know some of these things may not apply to now… but some will. Life situations shift, but values stay consistent and you are still YOU!

Some of you may recognize this line of questioning from counseling sessions and that’s expected. What we are doing here is looking for your strengths and doing what we can to emulate those instead of looking at the negative situations you’re struggling with currently. You’ve succeeded in this area before, you can do it again! I absolutely believe that 110%.

What can be done in the current situation to help you get back to those strengths from before? What mindset shifts can be done to help bring you closer to that place of excitement and energy? Is it going to be perfect? Maybe not, but we can get closer to that ideal goal.
