A year ago, I took the VIA Character Strengths survey and learned that my highest ranked strength is Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence. According to VIA, my motto is: “Find beauty in nature, art, ideas, and people.” My 2nd highest ranked character strength is Curiosity.
These strengths deeply resonate with me. As a coach I find beauty and excellence in all my clients. And I help my clients see that in themselves.
In my day to day, you might find me picking at lavender, sage, or any other herbaceous shrub and feeling it between my fingers. I always bring those fresh oils up to my nose to smell it, while my body fills with gratitude. You might find me staring at people performing or grooving my body to music that feeds my soul. And you might find me staring up at trees, inspecting every line of bark, feeling the texture of it’s leaves, and smelling it’s freshness.
Knowing my strengths helps me understand my purpose. And building my strengths helps me live out my purpose.
Take some time to think about what you love and why you love it. Think about what character strengths you’ve fostered and how this strength can help you in your life and career.
It’s no wonder why I love what I do. I get to see the beauty in people and be curious about their lives.
